Why Recruitment?

The Recruitment industry is a dynamic, fast paced and highly competitive industry with a wealth of opportunity to develop a fulfilling commercial career for the right people.

The UK recruitment industry grew by 4.3% in the financial year ending April 2012 to reach £25.7bn, according to the Recruitment & Employment Confederation’s (REC’s) Recruitment Industry Trends Survey 2011/12. It provides services to all business sectors, working in partnership to provide the vital resourcing link between candidate and clients.


HEADS Recruitment has an excellent history of guiding and developing Graduates within the recruitment industry to rewarding and fulfilling careers. We are proud that many progress into Management positions within HEADS and are now too shaping the minds and careers of our future recruiters.

HEADS Recruitment offer a competitive salary, individual and team bonus and incentives, along with professional development, training and accreditation.

“The first thing that was apparent upon my very first visit to HEADS was the strong team mentality that was and still is present within our operation. I found the interview process to be engaging, dynamic and challenging, I was also afforded the opportunity to gain a clear understanding of what the recruitment process entails as prior to contacting HEADS I had little experience with recruitment itself. During My time at HEADS I feel as though I have been lucky enough to make the most of the support and structured feedback that I have received. It is through this support that I have been able to quickly develop into a contributing member of the team. I have taken responsibility of increasing and maintaining the standard of candidates that HEADS have to offer. There is definitely scope to progress within HEADS through utilisation of our training programme and look forward to a bright future.”

Phil Gannon, Graduate Trainee Account Manager since Aug 2013


“After I graduated university and spent a year searching for a job I was given an opportunity by HEADS to take part in an assessment day with 5 other candidates for a graduate position; even though I knew nothing about the recruitment industry! It was challenging but I gave it my all and subsequently got invited back for a branch day to experience how HEADS operate and what I would be doing on a day to day basis. As soon as I met the team I saw myself fitting in perfectly and knew this is the place I wanted to work and build a career for myself. I have only been here a few months but the welcome I have received feels like I have been here for years. With on going support and training from everyone in the company my knowledge of the recruitment industry has grown and I am well on my way to achieving my goal of becoming a Business Development Executive in 2014”.

Chris Delve, Graduate Trainee BDE since Aug 2013


” After graduating from University, starting a career in Recruitment was never on the cards but after being introduced to the company, it became apparent that Heads holds all the ideal company attributes for anyone, especially graduates, who want to make the most of a fantastic career opportunity. The support that I have received from each department has enabled me to learn and adapt to the fast paced environment, with everyday providing a diverse set of challenges, from visiting clients to interviewing candidates. Even though the support is there, you are trusted and given responsibility so that you can show Heads and yourself that you have the skills to progress within the company. I look forward to my future with Heads.”

Stephen Tout, Graduate Trainee Account Manager since July 2013

“Having graduated I was focussed on a career within recruitment, and I was in the interview process with several recruitment agencies. It was during my interview process with HEADS that I was attracted to the core values and ambition of the company. I felt that joining HEADs would provide me with all the support, training and opportunity I needed to fulfil my career ambitions. I have been here 3 years now and during that time have developed my skills through both internal and external training courses. There is certainly an encouraging and supportive feeling within the business as well as a ‘work hard, play hard’ environment.”  

Chris Holland, Business Development Executive since Feb 2010


 “At this stage of my career, the experience I’ve gained with Heads is completely unique. In under a year I have gained responsibility of managing my own clients. I have Gained much experience and on the job training from peers and colleagues alike, this has helped me develop as a person. Heads have also supported me to gain further qualifications such as my REC recruitment certificate.”

Robin Hopwood, Account Manager since June 2012

Having just entered my third year with the business, I have worked closely with higher management to develop my skills further, whilst at the same time being listened to, valued and understood.

HEADS are Investors in People, and they truly stick to this ethic – valuing the input of their employees to further develop the interests of the business, and at the same time, wanting you to succeed as an individual.
