Jack Franklin

Born and raised in the North London market town of Barnet, Jack swapped the sunny South for the rain-swept North-West when he moved to Knutsford at the age of 10.

After graduating Knutsford High School, he continued his education at Oxford Brookes where he achieved a First-Class Honours in English Language with a dissertation in forensic linguistics all whilst holding down the vice captaincy of the football team and a place on the committee.

Wanting to get started in his chosen vocation straight after graduation, he joined London based Venn Group as a trainee Recruitment Consultant and his drive & determination quickly saw him promoted to Consultant working the financial services sector focusing on financial crime & compliance.

With a year’s solid experience of the world of work, he left to spend time seeing the sights of South-East Asia, Australia & Indonesia where he undertook some volunteer work in a Bali school. The final leg of his travels saw him working as an English teacher in Valencia.

Returning to the UK, it was time to get his long-term career goals back into focus and the team at Candour offered a perfect local opportunity to work in a collaborative team with a laser focus on individual training & progression.

Outside of work, he stills enjoys a game of football, playing tennis and the occasional morning spent spraying balls in all directions across wide open spaces (often referred to as golf!). He’s also an avid follower of the mighty Spurs and still keeps an eye on his hometown team of Barnet FC allowing him to enjoy the occasional market town derby here in Altrincham!
