Careers at Head
We genuinely want to provide a great place to work. A place you can explore your potential and develop meaningful relationships with your colleagues, clients and candidates. Here's how we do that...
Career Development - we embrace diverse backgrounds and skills and you don't need to be with us for a certain period of time or wait for someone else to move role. Our colleagues are promoted on merit. Simple.
Continuous learning - expanding our industry knowledge and learning new skills to enhance our professional and personal development is a fundamental part of life at Head. Lunch and learns, training workshops, a Learning Portal and one to one mentoring are just some of the ways in which your learning will be supported.
Have your say - we’re open and honest so we encourage everyone to give feedback and suggest how we can continuously improve. Whether it’s via our colleague surveys, regular check-ins with your manager, at our pizza lunches, summer BBQ's or our Quarterly and Annual Reviews, you have a chance to put forward your ideas.
Collaboration - we expect and encourage our colleagues to work effectively within and across teams on a daily basis. Our cross-team Working Groups meet regularly to work on key business goals and projects and we also work closely with our Taranata Group colleagues.
We want to ensure you thrive during your time with us and understand the importance of support both inside and outside of work.

Cortex Worldwide have been working with Head Resourcing for over 5 years as our strategic recruitment partner and throughout this time the level of service received has always been excellent. Head Resourcing understand our niche recruitment requirements and have delivered excellent pre-selected candidates that have fitted into our existing team and culture.
The Head Resourcing IT Leadership forum is a must in my diary, the opportunity to discuss relevant topics in an open forum with a wide range of experienced professionals, who are not only willing but eager to share insights (good and bad) is a rare occurrence and one not to be missed.
The support I receive from my team and from my manager is incredible. I am trusted to do my job and to do my job well, and the company have been amazingly supportive in terms of allowing me to work more flexibly.
Over the years, the IT Leadership Forum is one that I will always make time for as the participants are talented, interesting people and discussions are open and very relevant. I’ve always came away with great insights and great networking follow-ups.
One of the main benefits to me of the HR Leadership Forum has been the opportunity to talk to others involved in delivering their Company’s People Agenda, hear different views, ideas and share thoughts on priorities. It makes you stop and think about different perspectives.
“If I am being honest, I never had much faith going down the agency route for a job and have had some disappointing experiences in the past. Working with Head Resourcing, changed all that. The effort made to ensure you are a good match for the role is very unique in this industry and I couldn’t be happier."
The IT Leadership Forum was an excellent introduction to senior technology leadership in Scotland after relocating. The format is refreshing, discussing current issues and trends with peers in an informal and open way. The calibre of attendees makes for high quality conversation – it’s the gathering of peers I most look forward to!
From the beginning of the recruitment process until the day I started in my new role, I felt in very safe hands. They took time to get to know me to ensure I was the right fit for the role and the company, and genuinely seemed to care. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Head Resourcing, for anyone looking for a new opportunity.
Both professionally, and personally, working with Head Resourcing has always been quick, slick and easy. They’re extremely friendly and offer a great service due to their extensive connections throughout the IT industry. It’s always a pleasure working with Head Resourcing.
Networking with other HR professionals is a great way for us to learn from others as well as build new relationships. The HR Leadership Forum is therefore a key date in our calendars, so we can share our experiences and bring the “outside in” to our own organisation.
What I like most about working at Head Resourcing is knowing that every day I’ll be working as part of a team that values my contribution and care. When you are part of something special, growing and forever changing for the better…that’s how it feels here.
