Tell me more
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!
