Focus Announcement

Focus Announcement

As we celebrate entering our 30th year of trading we thought we would make July 2019 an even bigger event.

We are delighted to let you know Focus have become Employee Owned.  It’s been a long time in the planning.  But we believe that as a team of Co-owner Employee Owners – we can deliver a really positive food and drink recruitment service for our clients and by inference the future of Focus.

Employee Ownership is still relatively new in the UK, but we are proud to be a leader in this exciting new way of running a business and we all believe this can only be a really positive thing.  We all have a vested interest in the success of the business and are incredibly excited about our future.

Moving into our 30th year of leading the recruitment sector for the food industry, we believe we are again at the vanguard of the sector, with this refreshing and unique approach.  All employees are owners and all with a share in the direction we take and a commitment to the future!

Founder, Stephen Jones says “I have done years of research on the topic of Employee Ownership and wanted to benefit the employees who have been loyal and most successful over the years.  It has been an open secret within the business that I always wanted this to be the outcome, with my colleagues benefiting for their efforts and commitment, and they now all have a direct influence over every aspect of running the business.  I believe this is a progressive move, and gives real impetus into the succession of the business.  After 30 years I’ve learned the most important aspect of the business – is the team and I’m proud and honoured to continue supporting and working with my fellow Co-owners.”

At Focus we’re all owners, consistently delivering outstanding service.  Focus is our company, so it’s personal.
