Fraser Hill started his career in technical contract recruiting in London in 1997 before moving to Hong Kong to head up a technology practice focusing on contingency and executive search recruitment for a UK public-listed recruiting firm.

In 2012 Hill also launched Bremnus, a search and recruitment firm where he practices what he teaches on a daily basis.
