Recruitment specialist Austin Fraser, headquartered in Reading, will open a new office in Dallas, Texas, in October. The move anchors Austin Fraser deeper in the US market as its second US opening this year alone, as part of an ambitious global strategy.
Austin Fraser launched its award-winning Austin, Texas office in 2015, and is already recognised as one of the city’s most exciting and innovative employers.
Team lead Alina Brovko will relocate from Munich to build the new Dallas team, with hiring plans moving forward.
As the fourth biggest technology market in the US, outside New York, LA and Chicago, and a concentration of established Austin Fraser clients located in the city, Dallas was the obvious choice for the business’ third US office. A flourishing start-up ecosystem of incubators, tech meet-ups alongside a strong Fortune 500 presence means significant potential for Austin Fraser, with its technology heritage. The proximity of its Austin team also allows for deeper collaboration, ensuring networks and talent pools are harnessed for client success.
As with previous locations, Austin Fraser will invest heavily in communities, creating longer-term relationships while developing an exceptional pool as well as new career opportunities internally.
CEO Pete Hart commented: “It’s really important to us that we are embedded in the local community, so our approach is to adapt and integrate, while staying true to our Austin Fraser DNA. We very much become part of the community and our team has a strong desire to bring another dimension as a recruitment partner in terms of quality, consistency and trust. For us it’s about making a valuable contribution to our clients, candidates, our people and the local community.”
In the past 18 months, Austin Fraser has doubled its global locations, with offices in Berlin, Denver and Dallas. Offices are scaled with home-grown talent as well as local teams. Further expansion plans in the UK, Europe and the US will be announced later this year.
