Focus group puts record trade success on menu
ARECRUITMENT firm is celebrating a record trading period.
Focus Management Consultants Limited, recruitment specialist in the food and drink industry which has a head office in Bollington, has seen its strongest ever quarter with a 30 per cent increase on last year. Year on year growth is predicted to hit 20pc for the financial year ending June 2015.
Stephen Jones, cofounder and director, said: “We have witnessed substantial growth since the start of the calendar year.
“The business anticipates further acceleration on this uplift as a consequence of team headcount expansion which will continue with further new appointments across 2015.”
Mr Jones said the firm is looking to buy another food and beverage recruitment consultancy as part of its expansion.
He said: “Moreover we will potentially consolidate further by reviewing strategic options for the business to create value. These include the potential acquisition of another food and beverage recruitment consultancy.”
The business, which has been trading since 1990, has three additional UK locations, as well as the Middle East operation in Dubai. EVERY day Twitter is used to connect, share and discover, so if you are not using Twitter to achieve your business development goals, you could be missing out.
This week, the Professor from Social Media Experts offers his tips on reasons why you should be using Twitter.

Twitter is a quick and easy way to keep in touch with family and friends.
Removing the burden of long telephone calls, letters, and emails, Twitter helps people to reconnect on a daily basis.
In addition, Twitter can be an excellent way to stay connected between face-to-face meetings; something that is of real value to clubs and other organisations where momentum is critical. ●● 2. Twitter helps you connect with people you want to know.
Twitter puts you in touch with a handpicked community of people you actually want to know, rather than a list of existing friends and contacts you feel obliged to keep in contact with.
Likewise, while on Facebook and LinkedIn you have to request each connection, on Twitter you can choose to ‘follow’ whoever you want.
Moreover, once you do, you’ll have access to all their updates. LinkedIn is for the people you know, Facebook is for the people you used to know and Twitter is for the people you want to know.
