Recruitment is underway to initially appoint five new people in Manchester, including a Managing Consultant, a Senior Consultant, two Consultants and an Admin Support.

Head Resourcing already has a growing portfolio of clients and candidates in the Manchester area, and plans are in place to grow the Manchester office headcount over the next two years as the company’s footprint in the north west expands.

The move to Manchester comes within five months of the formation of The Taranata Group, launched by entrepreneur Paul Atkinson.  The Taranata Group comprises of four companies: Head Resourcing, Change Recruitment, Head Medical and Atkinson MacLeod.  The group is targeting combined revenues of £100 million by 2020, and Head Resourcing’s growth plans form a key part of achieving the target.

Jon Musgrave, Regional Director at Head Resourcing said:

“Over the past three years, we have seen a marked increase in our client portfolio, with a number of new clients based in the north west of England.  This client demand has driven our decision to open an office in Manchester.  Manchester has a great talent pool of professional recruiters, meaning we can grow an expert team here and tap into the wealth of opportunity the local market offers.  The city has a booming digital economy and the tech sector has huge growth potential, with more fintech companies choosing the city and surrounding areas as their base.”

Huw Martin, Managing Director at Head Resourcing added:

“The new office marks a significant step in our ambitious plans to drive growth across the north of England.  This is an incredibly exciting phase for us and we look forward to being part of Manchester’s thriving business community.”
