Newcastle’s Frank Recruitment Group has chosen Tampa as the location of its latest US office, making East Kennedy Boulevard their latest hub this summer.
The global niche technology recruitment specialist has also created 100 jobs in the Tampa area, ahead of the official launch on June 4. This follows an earlier recruitment drive in the company’s Newcastle and London locations, and the creation of hundreds of jobs around the world, including the USA and Germany.
The presence in the Sunshine State is Frank Recruitment Group’s sixth US hub, joining Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, and two offices in New York City. The team in Tampa will focus on the delivery in the NetSuite, Microsoft Dynamics, and Cloud recruitment markets, and will be recruiting for a multitude of jobs ranging from graduate-level roles to experienced sales and recruitment professionals positions.
Continued expansion into the US market has been incredibly positive for Frank Recruitment Group, with the firm reporting continued 40% year on year revenue growth and being recognised as the fastest growing recruitment consultancy in Europe.
“We’re very proud to open a new office location in Florida,” said James Lloyd-Townshend, Chief Executive Officer at Frank Recruitment Group. “Tampa is a great location due to a fast-growing technology workforce and a millennial population looking for exciting career opportunities. It’s a fantastic location, and we’re excited to bring the best local talent on board to help us build our presence in the Americas.”
Much like the North East of England, the city of Tampa is fast becoming a major player in the technology landscape, with recent figures showing a 55% increase in the total tech workforce between 2011 and 2016. There is a new generation of young, tech-savvy entrepreneurs in the state that are making the area one of the up and coming locations to start a business.
“We’re excited to have Frank Recruitment Group opening an office in Tampa,” said Mayor Bob Buckhorn, City of Tampa. “They recognise that this city is becoming a magnet for some of the best talent in the country, and that the potential for growth here is outstanding. We thank them for choosing Tampa and wish them a prosperous future in this market.”
The United States is a critical market for Frank Recruitment Group, and the opening of an office in Tampa marks the next step in strengthening its position as the go-to solution for niche technology staffing needs.
The announcement builds on a period of significant momentum for the company, following new offices in Dallas and Newcastle in the previous 12 months.
