Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS SME BUSINESS -

A RE­CRUIT­MENT firm is look­ing to ex­pand its team by 10 peo­ple in a bid to turn over £1m a year.

Fo­cus Man­age­ment Con­sul­tants Limited, which is based in Bolling­ton, aims to con­tinue the 26 per cent growth in rev­enue it achieved in 2014.

The firm which han­dles food and drink re­cruit­ment from four of­fices in the UK and Dubai, is now look­ing to ex­pand its team of 30 peo­ple by a third in the next 18 months.

Fo­cus Man­age­ment Con­sul­tants Limited boasts a client port­fo­lio with global gro­cery re­tail­ers, man­u­fac­tur­ers and food ser­vice brands such as Bakkavor, John West, A B Mauri, Nando’s, Ella’s Kitchen and Ra­tio­nal.

Stephen Jones, co-founder and direc­tor, said: “We are thrilled to have wit­nessed such ex­ten­sive growth, par­tic­u­larly in the last quar­ter of 2014. This sum­mer we will be cel­e­brat­ing our 25th birth­day, and reach­ing a sig­nif­i­cant fi­nan­cial mile­stone is very en­cour­ag­ing for the team and their ded­i­ca­tion will give them con­fi­dence to excel even fur­ther this year.”

The new team mem­bers will be re­cruit­ment con­sul­tants pri­mar­ily based at the busi­ness’s main hub in Bolling­ton.

Mr Jones added: “We will be tak­ing on up to 10 more mem­bers of staff to work at any of our lo­ca­tions, where we will be of­fer­ing highly at­trac­tive salaries, large bonuses, flex­i­ble hours and the op­por­tu­nity to be part of a com­pany which re­ally in­vests in its em­ploy­ees. Con­sul­tants who join us will have the unique op­por­tu­nity to work on a strate­gic level with our clients, be­com­ing busi­ness man­agers as they de­velop con­sul­ta­tive re­sourc­ing part­ner­ships.”

Founded by Stephen Jones and Michael Stani­land in 1990, Fo­cus Man­age­ment Con­sul­tants Limited sup­plies the food and drink in­dus­try with re­cruit­ment so­lu­tions in ar­eas such as HR, prod­uct devel­op­ment, op­er­a­tions, pur­chas­ing and com­mer­cial.

Fo­cus Man­age­ment Con­sul­tants is also a co-founder of the In­ter­na­tional Food Re­cruit­ment Al­liance – a con­sor­tium of six like-minded food and bev­er­age re­cruit­ment con­sul­tan­cies based through­out Europe to pro­vide more choice to clients and can­di­dates on the global food re­cruit­ment stage.
