Leading recruitment specialist appoints marketing manager
Head Resourcing, the recruitment specialist based in Edinburgh, has appointed Gillian Williamson as marketing manager.
The company, which also has offices in Glasgow, Manchester and Leeds, supplies contract and permanent staff within IT, digital and business change to a variety of companies throughout the UK.
Gillian Williamson, from Perthshire, graduated with a BA Hons in Business Studies with Marketing, and went on to spend seven years at Macphie food ingredient manufacturers, working in their marketing team bringing new products to market.
After leaving Macphie in 2015, Williamson joined Stewart Milne Homes, where she spent three years as marketing manager, working across central Scotland to increase awareness of the company and manage customer experience.
Gillian said: “I’m delighted to be joining the team at Head Resourcing. I’ll be focussing on building upon the excellent work and positive results we are already seeing across Scotland, but also developing and delivering a strategy for the growth of our new Manchester office and wider expansion plans across England.
“ I will also be working with the wider management team to develop and launch new products and services, such as Head Contractor Solutions, an end to end service for managing onboarding and background checks for businesses, which we launched earlier this year.”
Gillian said from the outset that the strong company values held by Head Resourcing were refreshing and a key attraction of the role. She said: “I feel it’s the next step in my marketing career, bringing in my experience from other industries. Being part of the senior management team shows that Head Resourcing places great value on the role of marketing, and the company already has an excellent reputation, which reflects in their work and long-standing relationships with clients and candidates.”
Head Resourcing is part of The Taranata Group, headed by recruitment investor Paul Atkinson, comprising Head Resourcing, Change Recruitment, Head Medical and Atkinson MacLeod. The group is targeting combined revenues of £100 million by 2020.
