The business has been growing at an average of 13.7% per year for the last 5-years and in the financial year ending April 2015 achieved £50.4m Sales, all achieved from organic growth. In 2015 HEADS was acquired by PROMAN as part of their strategy to develop a £3 Billion pan European recruitment business.

HEADS has an excellent record of achievement of developing its Trainees into some of the best industry Professionals and all its Management and Senior Management positions are occupied by Colleagues who entered as Trainees.

There is significant time invested into training and development to get Trainees to a qualified level and you will receive in-house training covering technical, legislative and compliance and commercial awareness in Year 1. Trainees then progress to an external, industry accredited programme which upon passing they become Qualified.

Once a Trainee has qualified, it is then that a Personal Development Plan is considered to consider how each person is best placed to grow their career and influence within HEADS. It is organic focus (both in developing its people and customer-relationships) that remain the cornerstone of HEADS ongoing success.

HEADS offers some of the most rewarding career opportunities in its sector whether judged by the amount on your P60 or in the enjoyment of being part of a close knit and successful Team. This probably explains why HEADS length of service is double the sector average.
