“I am a great believer that to make a business a success it needs to be your passion and I am lucky that my team are equally passionate about the business, our contractors and our clients.”
Focused Umbrella came into existence in 2004, when after 20 years in the recruitment sector, most of which was spent with Reed, I decided to spread my wings and start up on my own. Having spent a number of years heading up IT Project Management and Change Management within the Back Office I had a huge amount of experience in the areas of Payroll, Expense Management, Travel & Subsistence and Tax Planning combined with an Operations Background in the branch network so a move from Recruitment into Service Provision seemed a logical choice.
I am a great believer that to make a business a success it needs to be your passion and I am lucky that my team are equally passionate about the business, our contractors and our clients. Over the years we have recruited carefully, selecting the team mainly from the recruitment sector, ensuring that in every area of the business we have a strong affinity with our clients, understanding the process’s, legislation and requirements of each area of your business and tailoring our service and systems to meet those needs. With an in-house development team we are well positioned to deal with the ever changing face of the recruitment sector.
Nearly 10 years on we are paying over 5000 contractors and working with over 500 agencies/end clients across the UK. Based in our new offices in Kings Hill, Kent and Croydon we have plenty of space to meet the expansion strategy plans we have in place for our 10th year in the business.
