Dave Fox is the CEO of Focus GTS, one of the world’s fastest-growing recruiting firms.
Focus has created a unique distinction in the market by working with both small and large companies to locate the best niche IT talent for their needs. Dave has helped shape Focus’ reach through a vast network of highly skilled candidates and deep experience over nearly 10 years working with many of the largest companies in the world.
Dave has combined his acumen in the financial space with his deep understanding of how recruiting and relationships work between people and companies to craft an efficient, streamlined recruiting process for niche talent and niche industries.
Focus GTS is a niche IT staffing company with a focus on 3 core verticals: Digital Marketing Technology, Data Science/Artificial Intelligence, and Business Intelligence/Analytics. Having worked for the last 9 years in the IT recruitment space, after Dave started Focus GTS, they’ve had a tremendous growth trajectory.
“There’s a perception out there that companies can fill roles themselves, that hiring recruiters is a waste of money and this may be true for very general roles, however, as soon as you get into difficult to fill niche roles this thought process is no longer logical. You need to align yourself with an expert that can deliver.”
Part of Focus GTS’ incredible value is their speed: unlike any recruiting firm of its kind, Dave is committed to providing the best candidate for a company within 24 hours. He explains, “I’ve worked through countless recruitment cycles, and we can guide you through the process, eliminating inefficiencies and allowing you to turn your position around in half the time.”
“Our market expertise keeps you up to date on exactly what is happening in the talent market relevant to your needs so that you can make informed decisions and stay ahead of the competition with your most valuable company resource: your people!”
Why does speed, efficiency, and a streamlined process matter in recruiting? Simply, lost money.
Dave explains, “Over $1 billion was spent on [a single job site] last year directly by companies attempting to “empower” their HR teams. Job boards… provide the lowest quality of candidates and provide no opportunity to tap into the passive candidate market. However, this is typically the starting point for an HR team search.”
Dave uses a variety of sophisticated methods to find the best talent for the companies he serves, not relying on outdated trends in an ever-evolving and deeply competitive job market in the talent war.
As the job market grows more fragmented and competitive than ever, unicorns like Dave Fox are increasingly becoming saviors for companies they serve.
