Oxford was at the heart of Fram’s thinking when we set up Fram Professionals. We wanted to work with growth businesses, based in high growth regions, so we could bring the best jobs to those in the finance, marketing, and legal roles we cover – and Oxford really fits the bill.

A city steeped in history and academic prestige, it’s also a fantastic place to work. With its vibrant cultural scene, diverse population, and world-renowned institutions, Oxford offers a unique and enriching work environment for professionals from all walks of life.

Economically, Oxford is home to a number of globally renowned institutions, including the University of Oxford and Oxford Brookes University, which together provide a solid foundation for the city’s thriving economy. Additionally, Oxford is home to a growing number of cutting-edge tech companies, further diversifying its economy and providing ample opportunities for employment in a variety of fields. We Fram’s connections to the VC world via our sister firm, Fram Professionals, these firms are natural for us to support.

Oxford is also a cultural hub, with a vibrant arts and cultural scene that includes museums, galleries, and live performance venues. The city is also home to a number of festivals, including the Oxford Literary Festival, which attracts leading authors and thinkers from around the world. This rich cultural atmosphere creates a lively and diverse environment that is ideal for professionals who are looking for a fulfilling work-life balance. The city is consistently ranked as one of the best cities to live in the UK, with a low crime rate, excellent schools, and a high standard of living. This, combined with its beautiful architecture and stunning natural surroundings, makes Oxford a great place for professionals who are looking for a healthy and fulfilling work-life balance.

It's also extremely well located. On the doorstep of the Cotswolds, close to several major airports, motorways, London, the Midlands, and the West Country, it is a great place for firms to located and attract highly skill staff.

The world will of course be more tech enabled in five years than it is today, Oxford will be at the heart of this and we look forward to supporting firms in their growth by helping them hire great candidates.
