Established in 2010 by a recruiter with 20 years City recruitment experience, Fram Search is a specialist boutique financial services and legal & finance recruitment consultancy. We focus on permanent and interim recruitment.

Our aim is to build close and lasting relationships with firms who become repeat customers, and with candidates who we help throughout their career.

Our senior recruiters are very experienced in executive search, and our wider team of consultants highly trained and able to support clients with contingent recruitment. We have a demonstrable track record of managing team moves, which has helped our clients increase their revenue significantly.

We offer both retained executive search and contingent charging models, but utilise headhunting methods and our strong network on all assignments, due to candidates being saturated with job adverts online. The strength of our networks also enables us to help firms seeking to make acquisitions/sales, and with capital raising.

We are very proud of the long standing relationships we have built with both clients and candidates. We strive to offer best advice to both parties, and maintain the highest levels of confidentiality in keeping with any professional business.

What was Fram?

Fram Search - Amundsen NansenFram was the strongest wooden ship ever built and was used by the revered Norwegian explorers Fridtjof Nansen and Roald Amundsen for their polar expeditions.

Just as with our name-sake, we believe pioneering thought, attention to detail, and a robust but flexible culture are qualities to aspire to. It also happens to be an abbreviation of our founder’s alma mater.

Victory awaits him who has everything in order – luck, people call it. Defeat is certain for him who has neglected to take the necessary precautions in time; this is called back luck.From 'the South Pole' by Roald Amundsen
