Technology staffing specialist Frank Recruitment Group is planning an expansion across Europe, following a year in which it has increased gross profit and turnover.

Group results for the year 30 November 2017, uploaded to Companies House in early September, reveal GP increased from £61m to £84m, with turnover up from £126.4m to £180.3m, and operating profit up from £5.6m to £14.8m in the previous year.

In a statement, the group revealed in the last two months it opened offices in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Denver and Warsaw, with Cologne due to open mid-October, in a move expected to create around 400 new jobs.
