Why Fractional?

What is a ‘fractional’ CIO, CTO, or CISO?

A leader who divides their time between several businesses, providing each business with top-level expertise for a fraction of the price. Fractional is also known as on-demand, part-time, plural, or portfolio

Not every mid-market business needs a full-time CIO, CTO or CISO. Our fractional and interim model allows you the flexibility to scale up or scale down whenever you need to.

With us, you always get a first-class technology expert, without the full-time cost. Unlike on-demand, our people join your senior team and provide genuine leadership from day one. 


Our unique model provides a cost-effective way to get the very best talent on your team.

Why Freeman Clarke? Because…

We are the UK’s largest and most experienced team.

Our people share knowledge and opinions behind the scenes to ensure you get the benefit of the entire team. Each team is led by a Director, who ensures they work together for your benefit.

We are the best in the business.

We attract, screen, test, interview and assess more IT leaders than anyone else. Every one of our team is hand-picked on the basis of their skills and experience—and their ability to fit into the culture of a mid-market businesses like yours.

This is all we do! 

We are not going to sell you software licenses, hardware, service centres, helpdesks, cloud servers or a CFO! We don’t take money from vendors or suppliers, so you know that our recommendations are 100% objective.

We have a fantastic black book. 

We have built up unique knowledge of technology suppliers and products and can call on companies and individuals. We know whom to trust and whom not to, so you needn’t worry!

There is no lock-in. 

We don’t insist on an upfront payment or commitment. You can tell us to stop at any point. It’s as simple as that. 

We are affordable. 

Our people are the best in the business, but as you take a fraction of their time the price point is relatively low. Plus, we don’t cross-sell or up-sell.

We are commercial and relevant. 

We are business people who speak your language. Our IT strategies are always tuned to the needs of your business and the commercial realities.

We focus on professional development. 

Our team are fully engaged with a programme of knowledge-sharing and training in technology, business, and leadership from industry experts.

Don’t think of us as outsourced.

We’re on your side. Our only interest is your success, we’re accountable for what we do, and we’re in it for the long-term.
