What are the 3 main roles you are involved in at Focus Micro Systems

  • Creating posts for our website and social medias.
  • Getting involved with email marketing and general advertising campaigns.
  • Helping out on support (answering calls and helping our clients who use the software).

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
I spend far too much time in the gym, mainly weightlifting, but I also love to bake, dance, and go to the pub with my mates.

What do you like the most about working at Focus Micro Systems?
I like the variety in day-to-day tasks, and the friendship between everyone. The puppy is a bonus too!

What’s your background?
I’ve moved around a fair amount, but my family settled near Oxford a couple of years ago. I tried university (Sport & Exercise Science at Loughborough) but it wasn’t for me. I’ve been running a vegan food & lifestyle Instagram for a couple of years, and this combined with my previous job in a bakery where I did lots of social media work made me realise that I wanted to pursue content creation!

What’s your favourite film?
Anything Marvel – my top three right now would be Avengers Endgame, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Shang-Chi.

How do you start your day?
I like to start the day with sunlight (when it’s possible), and a nice bit of skincare to make me feel refreshed and ready for the day. Sometimes if I’m feeling super productive, I’ll go to the gym before work instead of after.

What’s one thing that surprised you about working at Focus Micro Systems?
I was surprised by how welcoming everyone in the office was! Starting a new job can be daunting but everyone made I feel much easier for me.
