Tell me more
How has your job changed since you joined Focus all those years ago?
I initially came to Focus as an apprentice for Focus IT, which involved supporting customers day to day IT needs as well as Focus’ internal IT requirements. After a year as an apprentice I was offered a full time position on the IT helpdesk which I continued to do until my skills had developed enough to join engineering team, my job now involves visiting customers both for support and installation of new IT equipment and software.
What attracted you to join Focus Group?
When I came for my first interview, I could see that it was a young and rapidly growing company with plenty of opportunities for career progression.
What do you love about your current role?
I am someone who likes variety which is plentiful in my current role, no two days are the same and I am constantly learning new things about new products and technologies.
If someone you know was thinking of applying here, what would you say to them?
I would say if you are looking for a role with plenty of opportunities to grow as a professional, develop new skills and work with highly motivated, friendly and supportive people then Focus is the place for you!
What is your career highlight at Focus?
If I had to name one thing I would probably say it was being offered a full time position at the end of my apprenticeship, for me that indicated the beginning of my career in the IT and telecommunications industry. That said, there have been countless highlight’s from the diversity of my role to the incredible people I’ve gotten to work with over the past 5 years!
