Every Recruiter has a favourite client they work with, very few however will admit it, they worry about pissing off the other businesses they work with. That’s not the case for me, for me it’s easy, Frank have been my favourite since the minute I started working with them in April 2021. Whether it be finding their Head of Social, or a killer Account Manager, or a short notice Account Director to go in, and make impact. I just love working with them.
Why do I love working with Frank?
Firstly, they are what their name suggests, they are Frank. They are clear, know what they want, and are open to feedback from external insight. All of it wrapped in a clear and ‘Frank’ recruitment and communication process.
Secondly, and you might call me biased, but they have been the leading PR and Creative Comms agency in the UK for the past TWO decades.
Based in Farringdon following a move from their previous long term home in Camden Town, just walking into the Frank workspace inspires me. All ideas are created internally, all creative is owned by Frank, they are the complete masters of their own destiny. I love that.
They demonstrated this ambition to be fully self-sufficient further in 2021. Having been bought buy a group previously, Graham Goodkind, original Founder of Frank, bought the business back into private ownership, and is now leading from the from with his leadership team.
Frank is also fiercely different, determined to push the boundaries of what is acceptable, achievable, and successful. Beans on Weetabix? Who else would have come up with that? It went on to win 7 awards in 6 days. Or what about the recent takeover of Trafalgar Square to plat 6,000 trees for the Innocent campaign. That is what Frank about about.
This current piece of recruitment again shows how they differ, as they don’t just want to add a Publicist to their ranks. Frank want someone who can help them embrace the power of Talkability.
Frank inspires by creating a true buzz for their clients, creating talking points; this in essence is Talkability. However it’s not just a buzzword, it’s them, it’s under their skin, they believe in it.
Frank want to add someone with fantastic Publicity and PR skills to their business, but more than that, someone who can sniff out how best to take an idea on and make it great. Someone who can really embrace Talkability across ALL of their clients.
This role is a first for Frank, the first time they are unleashing the potential to engage all of their brands with the newest, coolest, and most creative ideas to get the brand noticed.

Sum Frank up in a video? That’s a hard task, but personally I just love that they created this video for Aldi staff, at a time when we were all feeling a bit under pressure in work. Frank has it’s finger on the pulse of how the nation is feeling, something which is key in this new role.
