Focus 5 Recruitment, the specialist recruitment consultancy for growing tech businesses, has been named by KOMI Group as its new and exclusive talent partner. Over the next few months, the deal will see the Focus 5 team act as KOMI’s sole retained recruiter across its dedicated social media, marketing, and licensing teams.
The Wilmslow-based consultancy’s remit includes all levels of recruitment including account management, creative, content creation, analysis, video production, sales and business development roles.
Andrew Trotman, Managing Director of KOMI Group – said: “Focus 5 are specialists in what they do so we are delighted to be working with them as 2022 is set to be another period of rapid growth and recruitment for KOMI. I’m sure Focus 5’s contacts, ideas and strategies will add real value and will help attract the most talented people to our business.”
KOMI’s roster of international brand clients includes BBC Films, SWAN, O2, Universal, Bud Light and Disney.
On average the company delivers over one billion views across its portfolio of pages each month. It makes and distributes video content and viral campaign adverts which are then shared across its Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Instagram and LinkedIn accounts including its flagship page, It’s Gone Viral, as well as Go Fetch, a platform for dog lovers to connect with one another; Happiest, which focusses on bringing the most entertaining and uplifting content and real-life stories; and Ultimate which is a community based around crafts and lifestyle.
In September, ARK Media, KOMI’s licensing division, signed distribution partnerships with Reuters and AFLO that gives the business the opportunity to distribute its content to a broad network of leading international publishers and broadcasters for the first time.
The company recently doubled its office space at Beehive Mill in Manchester after taking an additional 1,300 sqft on a six-year lease. The firm moved its operations to the site on Jersey Street in early 2020. It has also grown its headcount to 50.

So many of our core values overlap and we know this is going to be a fabulous partnership moving forward. Talent attraction is a full time, specialist role and we will bring our skills in this area to KOMI giving them time to concentrate on serving their clients in the fantastic way they do.”
