Robert – Program Manager
I have worked through FBS on a number of projects and program roles over the last few years and found them to be a professional and caring organisation. They work hard to maintain a steady pipeline of opportunities for their team. Their dealings with the contractors, leading up to a potential posting, during the life of the contract and their planning for the next opportunity clearly shows they want to find and keep the best people available in their team.
Viktor – Data Scientist
Having worked with FBS for over 15 years, across multiple contracts, I can attest that FBS really takes care of you; the daily rate they negotiate for you is good, all the paperwork is taken care of and you are paid on time. When your contract is nearing its end, all extension options are explored. Over the years they have developed an extensive network so they are likely to find another job for you if you have delivered. In other words: whatever you would expect from a good recruiter is delivered … BUT … that’s not the best part. When you are working on one of Brett’s projects (if he acts as the project director) that’s the best! The most impressive and important aspect of working with him is the atmosphere he creates in the project team. People are helpful, friendly and co-operative. I guess that it is something to do with the careful selection of the team members. “Common sense” is the name of the game on his projects and there is always a plan, a backup plan and a worst-case scenario plan. If you are lucky enough to go on a field trip, (travelling interstate or overseas) it feels like a high school excursion, everything is taken care of and we have fun!
Michael – Test Manager
After joining the team I soon realised I made the right choice. FBS provides a great working environment to allow you to express yourself professionally as a team player, or shine as an individual. The culture is dynamic, inspiring, smart, energetic, and fun. The projects are many and varied, I’m learning every day. The relationships from FBS Management are strong and supportive, surrounded by a diverse team; all intelligent and friendly people. FBS is a company that supports and believes in their staff.
Lance – Enterprise/Solution Architect
When FBS were engaged to ameliorate a failing project, the first task they set about completing was to put together an awe-inspiring team. Their encouragement and support enabled me and the rest of the team to excel and produce the very best outcomes for their client. A difficult project was made easy. When it comes to Project Management, FBS is a leading firm. Whether you’re a client or an employee, you know you’re on a winning team with FBS.
Victoria – Business Analyst
The working culture is inspiring and fun. Everyone cares for others, and the management team is sensitive and caring about professional and personal development and the needs of their employees. FBS’s positive atmosphere keeps every single staff member closely involved in the company’s success, and motivates you to go that extra mile to deliver exceptional outcomes for the clients.
Kelly – Business Analyst
I have been engaged as an employee of Focused Business Solutions on a number of projects, and can honestly say that FBS is a fantastic company to work for. The team is exceptional, immensely client-focused, committed to project delivery and client satisfaction. I can always speak with great pride of the real results delivered while working with FBS. Directors, managers and staff are always approachable and willing to share their expertise and knowledge, providing guidance and advice. But where they really stand apart from other employers is the genuine care shown for employees. FBS truly care for and take care of, their employees, going the extra mile to ensure that employees are supported.
Hari – Project Coordinator
When I came to work for FBS I immediately noticed the positive atmosphere and the importance FBS places on its employees. At FBS suggestions are received openly, there are great co-workers and the senior staff seems to really care that employees are supported, happy and motivated. I have learnt and grown both professionally and personally and enjoy coming to work in such a family-friendly atmosphere. I would definitely want to work with FBS again for two reasons: the people and the culture.
Sue – Change Manager, Training
Ive worked for FBS on a variety of projects and been very satisfied with the lifecycle of each engagement from project initiation through to the final wrap up. FBS have always provided support in the form of HR, admin, technical and project oversight through regular client engagement and ongoing contact with key project personnel. Projects have included Sydney Water, Mental Health Commission of NSW and various other initiatives requiring a strong change focus and customised learning resources to be developed for a range of end users.
They recognise the key role of change management in the project lifecycle and include significant training and communications strategies across all aspects of project work.
FBS have always encouraged a collaborative and inclusive approach to problem solving and the delivery of project outcomes and have consistently provided suitable skills, advocacy and support when required to meet project deadlines. They encourage innovation and always look for new approaches to enhance project deliverables and ensure good outcomes for both the client and their consultants. Each engagement has proven to be a positive and rewarding experience.'
