Vice Chairman

Successful recruitment adds exponential value to the business and finding talented and best in class individuals is key to successful growth of our teams. We have been working with Focus for over 3 years now and the relationship has gone from strength to strength. Ross, in particular, has made this an easy relationship by quickly understanding what hiring managers are seeking and sourcing individuals which meet our candidate profiles. We’re pleased to partner with Focus and will continue to work with them in sourcing candidates for those tricky to fill vacancies!

Charles Walker & Co. like a challenge. You can hear it when they take the brief- Charles is thinking about the position and making connections in his head from the get go. He delivers when he promises and his communication throughout the assignment is proactive and timely. We will use him again and recommend to others.
Antonia Maclean
YMCA Trustee
Charles and his team have been a strategic partner to our business for around 5 years. At each stage of our growth we have entrusted the key element, our people, to Charles. He and his team understand our business, what makes us who we are, and they are relentless in finding the right talent to fit our needs.

Focus has become our business partner of choice, fully understanding our requirements, and providing a time-saving service and benefit for Buckles. A company of unquestionable professionalism, quality and standards who I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
Duncan Jackson
CEO - Buckles

I can safely say that due to Focus and their outstanding team, M L Academy has grown. That growth can be attributed mainly to its people, 85% of which have been hand selected and placed by Focus. I have tried to utilise many leading specialists and despite their costs I was always disappointed with the inconsistency of so called hand pick candidates they put in front of me for the fee. I would be at a loss without Paula as my partner for growth and would happily recommend and give examples of their great work with us.

Mike Wenn
Cofounder
Not all recruitment companies manage to achieve that magic blend of professionalism, honesty, and personal touch but Focus consistently strike a great balance between the three. We have successfully worked with Focus on a number of occasions and I would recommend their services without hesitation.

I am a huge supporter of Focus Search & Selection and Emily Parker in particular. Emily has taken the time out to understand the needs of our company and what I look for in new staff. My last 3 employees have all been gained via Emily and all are a great ‘fit’ and performing well. I call Focus now for all of my recruitment needs and know that Emily will find the right people to work with me and within the wider company.’
