With more than 25 years’ experience, PROMAN has more than 240 branches in France and is also active in Switzerland and the UK, working in all sectors including Engineering, Finance and Distribution.
With Proman’s backing we are now embarking on a programme of significant UK expansion. We have already started this with our new offices based in Castle Donington and Heywood. The new offices will continue to offer temporary and permanent recruitment support across our four sectors of the supply chain.
PROMAN hope that HEADS 30 years’ experience in the UK market, combined with their sterling reputation and ‘hub office’ model; will be a vehicle for growth for both PROMAN and HEADS in their respective sectors nationwide across the UK.
Since HEADS became part of the Proman family back in July 2015 we’ve already seen the first steps of our national expansion plans take place with the opening of our new East Midlands branch. The branch has already seen significant growth in the short period of time it’s been open.
In the last 12 months HEADS has been working in partnership with Proman to develop a growth strategy utilising our knowledge of the UK market and Proman’s expertise of growing a National business from 1 to 270 branches. This knowledge has been shared first hand as recently several members of the HEADS team have been out to France to see their operation. This invite was also shared by the Proman Group coming to see HEADS offices in Manchester, Yorkshire and the East Midlands.
David Ingham Managing Director “In 1997 our objective was to make HEADS the finest regional recruitment business through continuous improvement. Over 18-years we stuck to the same formula of blending enthusiastic, capable and motivated people organised into highly effective and well organised teams following constantly evolving quality systems and processes. We believed that sustainable success could only come through hard work and continually exceeding the expectations of our clients and candidates. In 2015, HEADS achieved £50M sales developed purely from organic growth with average client retention of 10-years. Our mission to create one of the finest regional recruitment companies was achieved, so what next? Enter Proman!
Proman is a family owned business that shares very similar values to HEADS and encourages a free spirit in its People. Founded in 1990 by Mr and Mrs Roland Gomez it has developed into the largest privately owned recruitment company in France with a network of 250 offices and sales of 1.2Bn euro, servicing the Supply Chain, Construction and Civil Engineering Sectors. Proman brings to HEADS its financial strength, contacts and knowledge of growing the business from a regional operation into the fifth largest network in France. Proman’s ambition and passion is to achieve the same transformation in the UK with HEADS.
The next Chapter for HEADS is underway with the successful opening of its East Midlands Service Hub. To the next 18-years!”
