Aaron is the first of our team to go under the spotlight; we thought it would be a nice idea for you all to get to know our team a little bit better and on more of a personal level. Check what Aaron wanted to be when he was younger, and what he loves doing outside of work.

What do you do at Focus on a daily basis?

What do you enjoy most about your job?
One of my favourite things about my job is working with candidates and finding them their dream role.
