Meet Focus 5
We are Chris and Fiona McCarthy, the team behind Focus 5, combining in-depth tech knowledge with recruitment specialism.
We’re committed to working in true partnership with the companies and candidates we represent. Our approach is completely consultative and we purposefully steer away from aggressive sales techniques. Our focus is on building long term relationships based on delivery and trust.

I am an experienced professional with a demonstrated history of working within sales across a variety of industries. I have recently joined my husband as a co-Director in his growing new recruitment business, Focus 5 Recruitment.
We help growing tech businesses in the North West through key stages of their growth plans by bringing the right people into their businesses.
We do this predominantly within tech, marketing, digital and sales roles…and we do this with passion and fun! The only way to work!
I am an experienced Senior Recruiter working across the Marketing, Digital and Sales sectors. I focus on exclusive and retained campaigns for tech businesses in the North West and find elusive, passive talent who help grow and take businesses forward. From Senior BDMs to Heads of Marketing and CTOs, if you’re looking in the Marketing, Digital or Tech Sales sectors I’d be keen to chat!
I have 20 years + experience in recruitment and have found success by maintaining open and honest lines of communication with candidates and clients alike.
Here's what some of our clients say about us

Sales Director - Distology Ltd
We have used Focus 5 numerous times for our recruitment, and they have delivered every time. Due to the nature of our business, we have very specific skills needed for certain roles which has always made recruitment when done in house a long, time consuming situation.
Focus 5 have changed all that and working with Fiona has been great! Fiona really
