Biography

As Chief Development Officer (CDO), I’m responsible for leading business growth alongside the CEO. I provide support to the managing directors in the UK, Germany and USA, helping to develop future leaders as well as sales performance in existing and new markets to ensure we meet requirements of the company’s vision and strategy.

Austin Fraser is an established international recruitment consultancy that actually consults. We’re here to listen and advise, and ultimately, to help organisations perform better. We believe in being open and transparent with clients and candidates, only putting the right people forward for the right job, saving everyone concerned time, hassle and money.

Launched in 2007, we have thriving offices in Reading and Munich, and specialise in engineering and IT recruitment. We know these industries inside out, make it our business to keep up with trends and developments, and maintain high-quality networks.

We may be young, but we have already been recognised with some prestigious industry awards. These include Virgin Fast Track 2011/2012, Sunday Times Best Companies 2013 (7th), 2014 (13th), along with Investors in People Gold Accreditation.
