IT recruitment specialist Head Resourcing says it’s celebrating a strong year in business after joining talent supergroup Taranta
Recruitment specialist Head Resourcing says it’s celebrating a strong year in business, having recruited 10 new members of staff and placing more than 500 candidates, as well as opening a Glasgow office and becoming part of talent supergroup Taranata Group.
The firm, which is headquartered in Edinburgh with offices in Glasgow and Leeds, supplies contract and permanent staff within IT, digital and business change to a variety of companies throughout the UK. It has placed 526 candidates in 2017 so far, and has extended its business offering in the west of Scotland, opening an office in Savoy Tower in the city centre of Glasgow.
Among the 10 new members of staff is recently-appointed Stephanie Finlay – formerly of DJ Alexander and G1 Group Plc. Finlay has been appointed to lead the marketing department and deliver a 2018 strategy to increase digital marketing, brand awareness and events across the business.
Managing Director Huw Martin said: “Opening a base in Glasgow felt like a natural step for us. We have fantastic contacts in the central belt, and want to maximise opportunities by being right in the heart of both main cities.
“We have some highly talented people working at Head Resourcing, and we are pleased to welcome Stephanie to the team. She has a great track record and will be helping us to implement strategic plans to increase our presence across the UK, and continue to build on our success.”
Earlier this year, recruitment entrepreneur Paul Atkinson revealed his plans for Taranata Group, a talent supergroup headquartered in Scotland. Taranata Group currently comprises Head Resourcing, Change Recruitment, Head Medical and Atkinson Macleod, employs nearly 150 people and turns over around £65m. Each individual business is a specialist, and operates autonomously in its own space, both at home and internationally.
Martin added: “2017 has been an incredibly exciting year for us. We’ve grown our team, opened a Glasgow office, surpassed our targets and become part of Taranata Group, with all the benefits that brings. We look forward to another great year in 2018.”
