Neues Büro am Lenbachplatz eröffnet

Neues Büro am Lenbachplatz eröffnet
Im März hatten wir berichtet, dass wir neue erstklassige Büroräume im Stadtzentrum von München gefunden haben. Nach monatelanger harter Arbeit sind wir jetzt endlich eingezogen: Seit dem 4. Dezember finden Sie uns am Lenbachplatz 1, einer der gefragtesten Adressen Münchens. Der Lenbachplatz befindet sich in bester Lage mit sehr guter Verkehrsanbindung, und in der nahegelegenen Kaufinger Straße gibt es jede Menge Restaurants, Bars, Fitness-Studios, Geschäfte und andere gesellige Angebote.

Dieses Jahr hat Austin Fraser weltweit nicht weniger als sechs neue Büros eröffnet. Sie alle ermöglichen uns, unseren Kandidaten und Kunden einen noch besseren Service zu bieten – und München macht da keine Ausnahme. Mit diesen modernen Büroräumen werden wir unsere jetzige Mitarbeiterzahl mehr als verdoppeln können!
 
„Wir sind begeistert von der Modernisierung unserer Büros und dem Umzug in Premium-Geschäftsräume in bester Lage im Herzen von München. Wir haben mit verschiedenen Designern und Handwerkern zusammengearbeitet, um unsere Ideen in die Tat umzusetzen und für die tägliche Arbeit unserer Teams ein wirklich inspirierendes Umfeld zu schaffen. Austin Fraser ist in den fünf Jahren, die wir in München sind, schnell gewachsen. Und jetzt haben wir die richtige Grundlage, um dieses Wachstum fortzusetzen und neue Chancen zu schaffen.“ Ashley Dunbar, Director Germany.
 
Neben mehreren modernen Bereichen für Meetings und soziale Aktivitäten gibt es jetzt auch bessere Schulungsmöglichkeiten, was die Teamarbeit noch stärker fördern dürfte. Diese sehr gut ausgestatteten Einrichtungen können auch unsere Kunden und Kandidaten für die Rekrutierung nutzen – eine zusätzliche Erweiterung unseres Full-Service-Angebots. Dass unsere Kunden ihre geschäftlichen Ziele erreichen und erfolgreich Ausnahmetalente im vom Arbeitskräftemangel geprägten deutschen Technologiemarkt für sich gewinnen können, steht für uns an erster Stelle.
 
Um unser neues Büro vorzustellen und die Räumlichkeiten mit unseren Kunden und Kandidaten zu teilen, werden wir in den kommenden Wochen einige Tage der offenen Tür veranstalten. Sie wollen gern vorbeikommen und einen Tag an der Seite unseres Teams arbeiten? E-Mail an [email protected] genügt!
 

WeWork Berlin coworking space

We are expanding our presence in Berlin

 We are expanding our presence in Berlin
We are excited to announce that our Berlin team has moved to a new location in Ku’Damm.  We spent the past year in a building less than a mile away from our new location – our old office served us well, and we made great memories there, but we couldn’t be more excited about our new space.
 
We are pleased to occupy a vast, open-plan office within the WeWork Ku’Damm complex, a modern masterpiece of co-working space spanning six floors of industrial design heaven, located in the heart of Berlin. We’re excited about the hustle and bustle happening outside our windows and all of the great bars and restaurants within an easy walking distance of the new location.
 
While we were happy with our previous space, when we first moved in there were only 3 of us who had relocated from Munich so, we had plenty of room. Now that the team has tripled in size, it’s safe to say space was getting tight. The new office offered more square-footage, but more importantly, it allowed us to rethink our layout. We were able to start from scratch by knocking down walls and putting up others that better fit our team and how we’re growing. Overall, we now have more of an open plan so we’re all working closer together.
 
It has been an exciting ten years for Austin Fraser, and we look at this new location as the start of another chapter in our history. We’re still working on getting settled in and adding artwork to the walls, but we’re incredibly excited to be in the new space. We’ll be hosting a welcome party soon, so if you’re in the area, feel free to stop in and say ‘Hi!’
 
The new address is:
Austin Fraser GmbH
c/o WeWork Kurfürstendamm

Delivering new opportunities for tech talent in Denver, Colorado

Delivering new opportunities for tech talent in Denver, Colorado
We are delighted to announce that mid-2017 we’ll be launching a new office in Denver, Colorado, USA. From this new base, Austin Fraser will be able to deliver highly skilled staffing services to the thriving digital and technology scene of Colorado. We’ll be establishing a team of consultants with expertise in specialist staffing within the tech and digital space. It’s our in-depth approach to understanding the markets, businesses and people we work with and how we develop deep long-lasting relationships that mean we’re able to work with employers and candidates to deliver exactly the right talent just when it’s needed.
 
Commenting, our USA Business manager, James Lafferty, tells us: “We’re genuinely excited by the opportunity that expanding the business to Denver presents. It’s a fantastic city that is rapidly becoming one of the key digital hubs in the US. With businesses like ComCast, Lockheed Martin, DISH Network, IBM and UPS all significant employers in the area and a fast growing number of start-ups, the possibilities for business and personal growth are fantastic.
 
“Denver is widely recognised as one of the top cities in America to work and live in right now. 300 days of sunshine and a great living standard make it a destination city where the expected influx over the next five years is a further 200,000+ people. Establishing a new base in Denver builds on the success we’ve had in Austin, Texas, where we’ve established a strong presence within the local community and been recognised by the Austin Business Journal as one of the best places to work, one of the Coolest Companies in Austin and on the 50 on Fire list – all within 24 months of starting up.”
 
Our CEO, Peter Hart explains more: “Austin Fraser is a brand with a strong heritage – we’ve been providing staffing solutions for ten years, and our staff are dedicated, hard-working trusted advisors to some of the world’s leading tech companies. We’re looking forward to becoming a key partner to the businesses in Denver and playing our part in shaping the digital economy of the area. We see this move to Denver as an important step in the growth of our business.”  

Wir optimieren unsere Niederlassung in München!

Wir optimieren unsere Niederlassung in München! 
 
Nachdem wir gerade die Eröffnung einer neuen Niederlassung in Berlin und den Umzug von zwei weiteren Niederlassungen in Großbritannien und den USA angekündigt haben, konnten wir unsere Niederlassung in München nicht einfach ignorieren. Diese Niederlassung ist ein Grundpfeiler auf dem deutschen Markt für Personalberatungsdienste im technischen Bereich – und nun ist es an der Zeit, dort in einen höheren Gang zu schalten. Also haben wir uns ein erstklassiges neues Büro im Zentrum Münchens gesichert. Es handelt sich um einen modernen Arbeitsplatz, der es uns ermöglichen wird, unser aktuelles Personal um über 50 % aufzustocken!
 
„Wir möchten ein anspruchsvolles Umfeld schaffen, in dem sich unsere Mitarbeiter wohlfühlen. Die Zufriedenheit unserer Leute liegt uns bei Austin Fraser nämlich ganz besonders am Herzen. Denn nur so können wir unseren Kunden und Kandidaten den bestmöglichen Service bieten. Der Lenbachplatz ist eine der ersten Adressen in München – mit hervorragender Verkehrsanbindung und der Kaufinger Straße mit einer Fülle an Restaurants, Bars, Fitnessstudios, Geschäften und gesellschaftlichen Aktivitäten gleich um die Ecke. Damit können wir eine noch bessere Work-Life-Balance gewährleisten.“ Managing Director Jacob McCulloch hat die Expansion in Deutschland geleitet und dafür gesorgt, dass das Team von nur zwei Mitarbeitern auf aktuell 30 gewachsen ist.
 
Wir planen moderne Meeting-Bereiche und soziale Räume sowie eine noch bessere Schulungseinrichtung, was das gesamte Team zu noch mehr Zusammenarbeit ermutigen wird. Diese Einrichtungen werden auf dem neuesten Stand sein und auch unseren Kunden und Kandidaten zur Verfügung stehen – als eine Art zweite Heimat für Personaldienstleistungen, ein weiteres neues Angebot in unserem umfassenden Service. Wir möchten unseren Kunden beim Erreichen ihrer Geschäftsziele helfen und den deutschen Technologiemarkt beim Kampf gegen den Mangel an herausragenden Talenten unterstützen.

Relocating our Reading HQ to Thames Tower!

 
 
Our journey from humble beginnings in a garage to becoming a leading international technical recruitment consultancy, takes another leap forward today, as we announce that we’re moving into Thames Tower, a brand new 14,000 sq ft office right in the heart of Reading. Our new UK home will support the development of our increasingly global business and provide a fantastic workplace for our consultants as we continue to grow.
 
Thames Tower sits in a great central location in Reading, a two minute walk away from the station, it’s easily accessible for commuting and right next to the restaurants, bars and gyms. With 360 degree views from the floor-to-ceiling windows, a communal sky garden, a range of meeting spaces and relaxation areas our consultants will have a great space from which to work. We’ll be fitting the office out with the latest tech, creating an environment that supports the way we work best.
 
 

We’re proud to remain in Reading and contribute to the development of both the local economy and the growing tech scene through local business initiatives and meet-up groups. Seeing direct impact and progress is extremely rewarding and we’re excited to be part of the further development of Reading. The Elizabeth Line opens in 2019 and will make the town much more accessible to the surrounding areas and London also having a huge influence over the influx of both people and businesses into Reading.
 
Peter Hart, CEO of Austin Fraser, commented: “We’re growing rapidly and need office space that will enable us to continue to deliver the opportunities to candidates and the talent to clients that we’re renowned for. Thames Tower, a stylish, modern building, in the heart of Reading, with great access to the town’s restaurants, shops, bars, and gyms, fits the bill perfectly. It provides us with the space we need to meet our ambitious recruitment plans and fits with our desire to offer a fantastic place for our people to work. After all, in a business like ours, it’s the people who are the bedrock; when they’re happy they’re able to do a fantastic job and are trusted by clients and candidates alike.”

 
 

In these 10 years we’ve won a number of industry awards and accolades including being shortlisted in the Top 25 of The Sunday Times Best companies To Work For, five years in a row! We’ve also been given a Gold accreditation from Investors in People. We’re always striving to provide an outstanding working environment for our employees and this new office will definitely aid us to help everyone create a good balance between work and their home lives, as well as injecting a bit of fun into the work day which is what we do best.
 
Derek Simpson, CDO adds, “We’re looking for both experienced and aspiring recruitment consultants who want to help drive our growth. It’s the start of the year and despite the uncertainty caused by Brexit and other political events we’re seeing increased demand for the talent  in the digital, technology, life sciences, aviation and automation sectors. Moving to Thames Tower will help create the right environment for our consultants with a range of modern meeting areas and social spaces that will encourage even more collaboration within the team.”
