It’s time to showcase one of our excellent clients: Focus Management Consultants Limited, a leading recruitment agency in the food and drink sector. With more than 25 years’ experience under their belts, they are certainly the go-to experts for anyone looking for food jobs.
Who they are
Focus Management Consultants Limited was established in 1990, by co-founders Stephen Jones and Michael Staniland. They both remain as directors at the company, alongside a rapidly growing team of recruitment professionals.
Having started in the UK, they now also have another base in the Middle East, where they offer international food recruitment services. They have a head office near Manchester as well as one in Dubai, and they now cover a group of companies all based around the same sector. These include not only Focus Management Consultants, but also Focus Interim, Focus Graduates, Focus International, Focus Chefs, Focus Select, and Focus Ingredients.
The consultants and senior staff have a wide wealth of experience, with some having joined the company over the past year and others having been part of the group for more than 15 years. The well-trained and highly qualified recruitment professionals are all dedicated to providing the same level of customer service to any company that lists jobs with them, as well as to helping candidates discover the roles that are a perfect fit.
What they do
If it wasn’t clear already, Focus Management Consultants Limited are in the business of food and drink recruitment. They are a leading recruiter in this field, working closely with retailers, manufacturers, and foodservice providers to showcase the best opportunities to the best clients.
They work with some of the biggest companies in the global food market, going from junior positions right the way up to senior management. Their job listing boards are updated daily with new opportunities, and they also have more discreet services available for those who require privacy when recruiting.
They are also part of the International Food Recruitment Alliance, or the IFRA, which was established in 2008. This organisation covers several recruitment companies, allowing candidates and clients a wide range of choice whenever they need to search for a position or list a new job. This is the only alliance for international food recruitment, so it is a prestigious position for Focus Management to be in.
