Focus 5 Recruitment

When Covid-19 hit, all the advice in the workplace was to adapt where possible; whether you were a business or an employee. Helping launch was not only a way we at Focus 5 Recruitment could adapt but also a way to help others. is a forum whereby furloughed staff can volunteer to help with live projects in order to gain new experiences and improve skills by working with innovative tech start-up businesses during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Focus 5 is proud to not only be involved in this project but also partnering with it to offer complimentary advice and guidance to any volunteers. We want to both help people with their mental health and wellbeing whilst also enhancing skills and experience ready for a different employment market post Covid-19.
