However, as a food and drink recruiter we are one of the few industries that has been able to keep the business thriving. After all, we are helping food and drink businesses with their recruitment projects and keeping food on the countries tables. Sourcing external help when you are so busy trying to get the food or drink out the door makes the best use of your time.

Since inception, Focus has worked on International as well as UK recruitment assignments.  With so many clients being International in their outlook, it has always been important for us to mirror them with our offer.  We have recruited in every Continent in our history and still work on a significant number of assignments across the Globe.  A core area for us though is Europe.  Our strategy here was to find like minded partners, specialist Food recruiters who understood their local market, who worked with a similar breadth of clients and who also wanted to work on European projects.
