UK-based Frank Recruitment Group, a niche technology recruitment firm, is opening an office in the Ross Tower in downtown Dallas.
The niche technology recruitment specialists will initially recruit 100 people in the Dallas area, with a goal of rising to over 300 employees in a few years, according to a company news release.
The Dallas office will primarily focus on Frank Recruitment Group’s Nigel Frank International brand, which focuses on Microsoft technology recruitment. The team will be headed up by NFI Executive Vice President Paul Briggs and Vice President Paden Simmons.
“We’re thrilled to be building an exciting and dynamic team here in Dallas,” said Briggs. “As the global leader in Microsoft recruitment, we are looking forward to training and working with the best local talent and supplying skilled Microsoft Dynamics and Stack professionals to employers both in America and abroad.”
While based in the UK, Frank Recruitment does have a Texas – and Fort Worth – connection.
In 2016, TPG Growth invested in the company. TPG Growth is the middle market and growth equity platform of private equity firm TPG, which is based in San Francisco and Fort Worth.
“At TPG Growth, we look to identify and invest in disruptive models that challenge, enhance, and transform industries,” said Shamik Patel, principal at TPG Growth. “The demand for specialized technology experts continues to grow, creating a need for an efficient and scalable approach to placing the best people in the right jobs. We look forward to continuing the company’s growth in Dallas and beyond.”
The move is another indicator of the strength of Texas’ tech sector, which is the over a half a million workers in the technology field.
