the right thing

Our people.

Since we launched in 2007, our people and our culture have continuously set us apart from the competition.

The Austin Fraser team has grown from two people in a garage, to more than 100 people across three countries. But our attitude towards internal recruitment remains the same: bring in great people and offer them all the tools, support and training they need to become truly excellent market specialists.

Every member of our team lives the values of Austin Fraser: earn it, own it, love it.

Let our people do the talking.

We could write for days about what makes us special, but we wouldn’t, we don’t take ourselves that seriously! It all boils down to one thing: our people. The people who show up every day of every week, who really care about the people they connect with and the cities they work in, who are driven by your opportunities and go after them like no one else. They’re the people you want in your corner, fighting for you, sharing your challenges and celebrating your wins.

We walk the walk.

We don’t just talk the talk, we walk it too. We know great relationships don’t happen overnight so we make sure we’re reliable, trustworthy and knowledgeable for our communities, clients, candidates and each other. We’re loyal to the core. We’re committed to putting in the ground work and work hard to be valued as much as we value others. We give advice, offer solutions and respect those who’ve been in the game longer. We get to the top through working efficiently and never giving up. We don’t tear people down to pick ourselves up. We earn our stripes and are rewarded when we achieve.

Own it

We get it done.

We see opportunities and go after them like no-one else. We strive to do things differently and challenge the status quo. We’re real so what you see, hear and feel is genuine. We’ll always find solutions over problems. We know our stuff inside out and we do what we say we will. We’re honest and tell it how it is, even when that feels tough, no excuses or bullshit. We care, A LOT.

We love it.

We take huge pride in doing a great job and smashing our goals, celebrating the highs and collectively finding our way through the lows. We take our roles seriously, but know how to have fun. You’ll find a passionate and lively bunch who recognize that our people show

this in different ways. We know happy people, make successful people. We all contribute to our culture, looking out for each other and doing the right thing along the way. We’ll always pitch in when our teammates need help, just try stopping us. We cheer on the small wins as well as the many huge achievements we hit. We take part, embed ourselves, and never sit on the sidelines.

51% : 49% male: female gender balance

We know teams are stronger and more effective when they're balanced and are proud of the fact our gender balance is visible in all parts of the business through to the exec team.

99% CEO approval

Based on over 102 reviews on Glassdoor, 99% of our employees approve of our CEO, Pete Hart. High isn't it? If you met him or checked out his podcasts you'd understand why.

85% recommend to a friend

Hey, some people don’t want to work with their friends! We get it. However, 85% tops the industry charts, not that we're competitive, or care about that kind of thing ;).

78% retention rate

Nobody wants to leave once they have found their home! Of course, there is the occasional departure, which is typically met with departing parties, lots of hugs, and the “I’m not crying, you’re crying” tears.

31 International Awards

Every year since Pete and Del founded Austin Fraser we’ve been collecting awards and accolades along the way. Once we expanded beyond UK borders, it became annual international recognition. In fact, we’ve been awarded Top 100 Best Companies to Work For 8 years in a row. True story!

100% remote capability

It’s a weird day and age for work. We’ve smoothly transitioned to 100% remote in every country and it only took our IT team 24 hours to pull it off. We don’t like to hang around!
