From AJ100 practices to smaller boutique brands, practices that work exclusively in the UK, to practices that are successful internationally.

Our Executive Search experience

Significant specialist recruitment experience and credibility are critical when delivering an Executive Search. Consequently, at FRAME Recruitment, only our most senior team, including board directors manage our search work.

Actions speak louder than words in Executive Search, and if you would like to see examples of some of the specific sector and role searches we have successfully delivered, please contact us.

​We use a tried and tested approach to Executive Search, set out by our parent company, the Faststream Recruitment Group, a specialist maritime recruitment business, that has been operating since 1999. We are results-focused, and we don’t sell any unnecessary ‘bells and whistles’.

Our search execution skills are governed by four key principles: Understanding, Accuracy, Specialism and Dialogue.

Our philosophy is based on understanding and responding quickly and effectively to our customers’ confidential and strategic needs. We believe that a partnership approach is the key to a successful executive search and selection relationship.

We can accurately identify the right people in your search by using our extensive head-hunting experience, coupled with our knowledge of the market and the people working in it. Every search we undertake is specific to you and your unique needs. Our pro-active approach to sourcing means that in a dynamic and rapidly changing recruitment market, we are reaching out, and creating real conversations with the people that you want to hire.

We only complete Executive Search work for two key sectors; Architecture and Interior Design. We have built up our knowledge in these sectors and we know what it is to be a true specialist in a generalist executive search marketplace.

Dialogue is everything to us – we want to know you, not your email address (but that would be great too). We keep our executive search partners up to date at every stage of our search process to ensure we are building relationships that are successful and long-lasting. We want to be your valued partner and we will always share our thoughts and ideas in the process.

We source hard to find senior executives, directors and leaders and pride ourselves on our straight forward approach.

Diversity and inclusion

We are passionate about people, and we embrace the differences that make us unique. We give our all to provide you with the best candidates for your executive roles. Our search and sourcing style ensures everyone is treated fairly. This is unrelated to someone’s gender, age, ethnicity, background or beliefs.

​Salary surveys and benchmarking

Many of our partners have benefitted from using our services to create salary surveys and benchmarking reports before the commencement of their executive search. These determine whether your compensation structures are aligned with industry and competitor salaries and benefits. Or they can establish new salary scales and benefits packages.

We are committed to our client confidentiality agreements. This means you won’t see us advertise our current executive assignments on our website.

Customer care

Our recruitment consultants ensure they are speaking with their clients and candidates on a regular basis. Our ethos is built on four key values: do it brilliantly, do it with a smile, do it with respect and do it fairly.
