MARKETING, DIGITAL & TECHNOLOGY EXECUTIVE RECRUITMENT

The UK’s leading specialist marketing, digital and technology search firm for high growth brands.

We’re the business that built the AO.com senior Marketing and Digital team pre-IPO and following such high profile successes, we work with some of the UK’s most exciting high growth and corporate brands including Missguided, Tyres on The Drive, Boohoo, Iceland, On The Beach and Shop Direct to deliver key C suite, Director and 'Head of' level roles.

FR Executive was created to offer a service that delivers executive-level digital, marketing and technology recruitment more effectively than traditional generalist board-level practices. Bringing the latest sourcing technology and our own tried and tested research and market mapping methodology to disrupt the Executive Search market.

Focusing on the recruitment of senior management and leadership positions across these disciplines in the private and public sectors nationally, we support clients from FTSE 100 to SME and Private Equity backed businesses in making key appointments that have a critical impact on their organisations.

We have extensive experience across Commercial, Technology, Marketing, E-commerce, Digital, Analytics, Creative, Product and Communications recruitment in the Retail, Gaming, Technology, Financial Services, Pure Play, Travel, Agency, Business Services and Consulting sectors.

Our Executive Approach

We deliver best in class research and talent acquisition in Technology, Commercial,  Digital, Marketing and eCommerce C-suite, Director and ‘Head of’ level roles. Our services don’t end there and we consult across clients ranging from SME to FTSE 100 businesses on organisational design, role scoping and salary benchmarking projects.

  • Executive Search

    Executive Search has evolved from the days of the little black book. Whilst today a strong network is still as vital as ever, FR Executive has built their reputation on more than knowing who’s who, but rather filtering the great from the good.

    Our Executive Search Directors are industry served marketers who are well embedded in the industry, meaning we know what great looks like in Marketing, Digital and Technology. We deliver Permanent, Interim and Non-Executive Director appointments across the UK or internationally, offering a thoroughly discreet, rigorous and professional service.

  • Role & Salary Scoping

    Using our experience across many sectors and an extensive data set, we are able to provide detailed insight into the current market place. We use market leading salary benchmarking technology to advise our clients on an appropriate salary level and a suitable benefits package that enables them to attract the best talent.


    Our intimate knowledge of the marketing, digital and technology sectors, means we can also advise clients on whether the technical scope and skill requirements for a role are realistic or attainable within the marketplace or a particular budget.

  • Engagement

    Engagement of future and current employees is a vital component to being able to attract best in class talent.

    The most successful businesses take this very seriously and we’re proud to have advised a number of high ranking ‘best companies’ on their strategies in these areas.

    Developing strategies specific to Executive Search, candidate attraction and on-boarding that engage and excite candidates maximises the chances of delivering the best talent and results.

  • Organisational Design

    We have helped shape the Marketing and Digital structures of some of the UK’s biggest corporate brands and most well-known high growth businesses. Using our organisational mapping software, we are able to research, record and analyse organisational structures across a multitude of businesses.

    This rich data combined with extensive experience of organisational design consultancy projects allows us to deliver recommendations and guiding principles which best fit our client’s corporate strategy.
