what our consultants say

trish, business analyst

"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. Of course, there are also plenty of celebrations, while making sure that client expectations are met. 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 and my choice is based on two things - First and foremost, the people and secondly the work and work culture."

"Having spent the last 12 months being associated and working with FBS, I have always found them to be a very personable and honourable consulting company, they actually care about their staff.  FBS was totally professional in their dealings with myself and other consultants I worked with. I would thoroughly recommend FBS to anyone wishing to be a part of a great team"

Hari, Project Coordinator

“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. What makes FBS stand out is that every single employee has a stake in the company’s success. They are very team-driven, and operate in a way that puts collective goals ahead of individual glory. A recent success with a client’s delivery was highly regarded by FBS who celebrated their gratitude with all their staff”.

"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."

As a new FBS consultant, I receive tremendous support which I need to remain positive when stressful situations present themselves. It’s a place where individuals come in at different levels, with different skill sets, aspirations and attitudes and yet continue to bond.

michael, test 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. I was privileged to have the opportunity to be engaged in projects that really make a difference, with an exceptional team committed to client satisfaction. Working at FBS has given me exposure to very interesting projects, which deliver real change to the client. The team is exceptional, being immensely client-focused and committed to project delivery and client satisfaction. I can always speak with great pride of the real results delivered while working with FBS. Further, FBS pride themselves on offering professional support and assistance to all employees, to ensure that the best solution is delivered to the client. Directors, managers and staff are always willing to share their expertise and knowledge, providing guidance and advice, and are approachable and knowledgeable with a wide variety of areas of expertise. 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.

claire, senior change analyst

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!

viktor, senior data analyst

"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.
