Understanding your company’s brand archetype helps you to communicate effectively with both your existing and future clients. When you know who you are and what you stand for, you’re giving us, as your recruiter the best possible chance of finding candidates who will fit perfectly into your organisation.
The archetype model is the brain child of the psychologist Carl Jung. It’s based on the theory that people instinctively want to identify with a universally familiar character or situation. One that transcends time, place, culture, gender and age.
Put simply, archetypes are symbols of your mind’s subconscious desires and truths. As part of a rebranding exercise at Headway a few years ago we explored brand archetypes. It was insightful, valuable - and fun to do. After a lively office debate, we came to a consensus that the Hero archetype best represented Headway as a company.
As a client, when you work with us, you’ll find that we solve your recruitment problems. We meet your immediate needs in times of crisis - when a member of your team leaves unexpectedly, for example, or in periods of rapid growth and expansion. Headway provide you with the help you need, when you need it.
As a candidate, we know that finding a job that makes you happy and an employer that values your worth is not the easiest thing to do. You might be looking at your next step on the career ladder.

So when we look for a new member of the Headway team, we seek dynamic action-takers who’ll fit perfectly into our company culture. People who will go above and beyond to meet the needs of our clients and candidates and get the job done.

After unsuccessfully trying a few agencies, when trying to attract high calibre candidates, we contacted Headway Recruitment. I was immediately impressed by their level of professionalism and knowledge, and one of their consultants was swift to come out to visit me. They really got to grips with our requirements, and their use of psychometric profiles really ensured that we received the right candidate fit for our business. Headway sent us two excellent CVs and we actually offered permanent roles to both candidates. They were honest in their approach and kept me informed during the whole process. Every time we now have a vacancy Headway are our go to agency!
When I needed a new team member for our sales division, I contacted Headway. I wanted to see what impact psychometric profiling would have on the recruitment process.To say I was impressed is an understatement. With new staff in the past we never knew who would perform and who would struggle. The team member Headway found for us stepped into the sales team and within a month was consistently a top performer. On average she was hitting 175% of her sales targets making over £100k worth of sales a month. This was because Headway took the time to visit us and understand our work culture. Their selection process made sure only those candidates with the right drive and results focus were submitted.To anyone thinking about using Headway I would say simple do it. Their results speak for themselves.
We were in desperate need of a good Receptionist for our front desk at Queensbury school. Our searches had been time consuming and fruitless. We approached Headway and Mark came out to meet with us. Shortly after he provided us with a shortlist of candidates. We ended up employing Charlotte on a temporary to permanent basis. Headway provided an updated DBS check, as well as a detailed report on her Word and Excel skills. Her psychometric profile proved to be spot on. Charlotte’s profile indicated that she would be enthusiastic, upbeat, driven by collaboration. We would highly recommend Headway and their thorough recruitment process.
We first approached Headway Recruitment over 10 years ago when we were in the process of growing our small team in our fledgling business. From the outset we were impressed by their professionalism and dedication they had to finding us the perfect fit. As the business has grown we have continued to use Headway’s services and over the years we have had over 15 successful placements. The candidates they have placed have become an integral part of the team, many of them progressing into more senior positions. They truly do what it says on the tin ‘Headway Recruitment, growing businesses, building careers’.
