Working in an ever changing and entrepreneurial sector we recognise that no 1 solution fits all. We’re flexible in our approach and tailor our search methods depending on the skill set and profile required for each role. We’re also flexible in our hours as we know recruitment is not a 9-5 job!


We look to provide opportunities with a difference. By working only with growth focussed tech businesses, we’re able to offer roles with huge opportunity to make an impact on some of the most interesting companies out there. Whether it’s a fresh challenge, career growth or equity options you’re looking for, we’re working with the right companies to offer this and more!


We really value the communities in which we work and look to fully engage with them and also offer something back. From the tech community in which we’re heavily networked to our local community where we support start up tech companies.

With our regular donations to the Mind Manchester charity in line with our 1 placement, 1 donation initiative we also aim to make a positive contribution to the wider community we are part of.


OK it’s a bit of an overused tech saying but for us it’s just another way to say unique. It’s about finding that rare talent to REALLY move your business forward or the role to finally offer the deserved opportunity to grow with a great business. Focus 5 want your Unicorn.


We want success, our clients want success and our candidates want success. Importantly we are flexible in respect of what success looks like for any company or individual we work with. By understanding what success looks like to those we work with, we can help find the right candidate or the right role.
