Going further for Microsoft Partners


Delivering outstanding talent for your Microsoft Partner practice

Throughout our extensive experience working with Partners, we’ve delivered thousands of talented Microsoft professionals.

No matter how complex the project, we can help find the right professional with the right skill-set for every job—from implementation to ongoing support and training.

What makes us different?

The right candidate, every time

As a registered Microsoft Partner, having high-quality professionals in your corner means you can provide exceptional services to your customers.

Whether you’re looking for certified professionals, or new talent to help your business grow, we’re dedicated to finding professionals who fit your business—in fact, 85% of people we place in permanent jobs stay in the role for two or more years.

If you need an extra pair of hands on a project, our vast network of candidates and market expert consultants means we can deliver skilled contractors fast—in most cases within 48 hours.

Global reach, bespoke service

Our investment in marketing allows us to reach more Microsoft professionals than any other agency, and through our event sponsorship and support of product user groups around the world, we’ve built strong relationships with professionals in every division of the Microsoft stack.

With a decade of experience in Microsoft recruitment, you can be sure that we understand the obstacles that you face, and can advise you on all of the options in front of you. When you’re hiring, we make sure you’re hiring the best.

We know your time is valuable. With Nigel Frank, you’ll get a dedicated account manager who’ll work hard to get to know your practice, your culture, and your individual needs, ensuring we deliver candidates who fit your organization. We may have global reach, but we haven’t lost our personal touch; our consultants have extensive local market knowledge, so they can offer you a bespoke, tailored service wherever you are.

Dedicated to the Microsoft ecosystem

As Nigel Frank consultants are laser-focused on specific Microsoft products, they are technical experts with unparalleled access to the best talent. These candidates are high-quality contract and permanent professionals that other recruiters just don’t have access to.

Our dedication to niche technologies gives us unique knowledge of the Microsoft market. From administrators and functional and technical consultants to pre-sales consultants and project managers, no matter what role you’re looking to fill, we’ll find the right professional for the job. We go further than any other agency to make sure your next hire is a success.

How our process works for Microsoft Partners

  • A dedicated account manager will define your specific needs (1—2 hours)
  • Once terms of business are agreed upon, your account manager will deliver a shortlist of fully briefed and vetted Microsoft experts who are motivated to join your business (12 hours for contract/48—72 hours for permanent hires)
  • Interviews with previously screened candidates will be arranged (typically within 24 hours for contract, or dependent on your requirement and candidate availability)
  • When you’ve made a choice and picked a candidate to hire, we will negotiate on your behalf; for contract hires, we’ll even take care of all of the paperwork and invoice you after 30 days in order to get them started on your project right away. (Typically within 24 hours for contract/within the standard local notice period for permanent hires)
  • Your account manager arranges a check-in with you and the candidate (1 day, 7 days, 28 days)
