We’re very excited to announce we have been ranked at No 14 on the annual Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 list of fast growing international companies. Our international expansion started in 2012 with our Munich office, in Germany, which has now grown to more than 30 people. Since then we have opened further offices in Austin, Texas, USA (now more than 20 people) and Berlin, Germany. Just last week we also announced that we are continuing our global expansion in Denver, Colorado.
As part of our international growth strategy, we identify markets that are aligned with our core UK markets. We have carefully considered our new locations to find markets where we can make the maximum impact and grow a sustainable business. We’ve been able to bring our knowledge of our Technology, Digital and Life Sciences markets to help our clients’ businesses grow by finding the right talent and building some incredible networks.
Our CEO, Pete Hart has shared his thoughts, “I am so proud of all our people and what they have achieved in Germany and the USA. There have been plenty of challenges, but the work ethic and continual desire to improve and adapt, have resulted in this placement in The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200. We have had a number of key staff relocate from our UK office over the past 5 years, who have been integral in founding, maintaining and evolving the spark that made us special when we launched in the UK.
“We have built amazing teams with a focus on delivering exceptional client and candidate service. Our approach is to provide the best possible environment, tools and development for our people to do their job to the best of their ability. We invest heavily in the success of our people and rely on them for the success of our business. We believe it’s right that we create an environment where colleagues respect one another, support one another and have a great time.
“Our plans for growth don’t stop here. We’re looking at where we might grow next and we’re still recruiting in all our offices – Reading, Munich, Berlin, Austin and Denver. It’s exciting times to be a part of Austin Fraser”

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.”
