Focus Group
Focus Group 0330 024 2000

We actively demonstrate our commitment through taking part and hosting fundraising events and activities, and with gifts in kind.

We believe this is an integral aspect of running a business and advocate the importance of these activities through social media and within the press to: increase their profiles, maximise awareness of the issues and make a positive commercial contribution.

As a long term supporter, Focus are pleased to provide ongoing local support to The Chestnut Tree House Hospice as its sponsored charity. We have supported the Chestnut Tree House over the last six years hosting numerous activities which has developed a strong relationship between the two organisations.

Gamma Ball Rally 2015!


For the 4th year in a row Focus Group took part in the Gamma Ball Rally.

This year the teams were tasked with driving from Newbury, making their way over the English Channel into France, then driving into Bruges where they stopped off for their first night. This was followed by two nights in the iconic city of Amsterdam.… and with a few fun challenges thrown in on the way.


For the 4th year in a row Focus Group took part in the Gamma Ball Rally.

    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!

    How has your job changed since you joined Focus all those years ago?

    I initially came to Focus to assist with the launch of Focus Mobile, which involved selling into our existing customer base as well as bringing on new clients. As the department evolved, I moved into a more technical support role whilst still managing and maintaining the long-standing relationships that we have built today.

    What attracted you to join Focus Group?

    Focus was a fresh young company that had a clear desire to succeed in business and having known both the Directors, Ralph Gilbert and Chris Goodman, for some time, I knew that it wouldn’t be long until I saw the company grow into what it is today.

    What do you love about your current role?

    It’s always pleasing to see customers who started with me 10 years ago, who are still with Focus today. I have built up strong relationships with them. I also enjoy the technical aspect of the job as it keeps my ageing brain in gear!

    If someone you know was thinking of applying here, what would you say to them?

    If you are willing to work hard and be rewarded for it then Focus could well be what you are looking for. There is lots of fun to be had and I have always found the company to be both supportive and generous.

    What is your career highlight at Focus?

    Seeing Focus Mobile develop into a very successful business within Focus Group has been great. I’d like to say a big thank you to Focus for the last ten years and here’s to the next ten!
