“I have worked with Focus Management on specific hires across a number of functional areas and always found them to be proactive and energetic, with the ability to source great candidates.

The feedback from the whole Executive Team (Chairperson, CEO, CCO) and the Senior Leadership Team was unanimously positive. We are pleased with all the new talent you have introduced to our business, but also your recruitment approach from the number of cvs you send to ensure we have choice, right through to your understanding of the job market and our culture. Mentioned a few times was the pace and the responsive times/availability of the Focus Team (early mornings and late evening calls/texts/emails). Look forward to continuing our working partnership.”
