Having opened my own recruitment company and experienced early success I knew I needed to grow my team. I had been working with Rec2Rec agencies, but after searching the internet I found Headway Recruitment. With their great Google reviews I was keen to give them a try. Annabel came out to see me immediately and she really took the time to understand my requirements. I have now been working with them for the past year and they have placed five excellent candidates within my business who are going from strength to strength and have made such a positive difference to the team.
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 and 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 INSIGHT and specifically 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.
"I have been working with Headway Recruitment for over eight years to provide staff to my department for both temporary and permanent requirements. They have helped recruit for a variety of positions including CAD Designers, Electrical Engineers and Mechanical Engineers. I enjoy dealing with Headway Recruitment because of their experienced and knowledgeable consultants and their consistent high level, honest service. Headway have always listened to my requirements and provided me with relevant and high calibre candidates. I had in the past used a handful of agencies to assist me with filling vacancies, but Headway Recruitment is definitely my preferred agency."
“When it comes to recruitment consultants there are plenty that talk a good game, but Headway make things happen.
