Fast Track 100

There are apparently more jobs for IT professionals in Scotland than there are people to fill them, a fact that has led to substantial growth for this firm. Founded in 2001 by serial recruitment entrepreneurs Paul Atkinson and Gordon Adam, Head Resourcing specialises in placing contract and permanent professionals in management consultancy, financial services, technology and media firms north of the border. Last year it also bought a controlling stake in the headhunter Carlyle Associates. Sales at the company have soared 160% a year from £445,000 in 2003 to £7.8m in 2006.

This profile reflects the company at time of publication and does not reflect any changes that may have subsequently occurred. Fast Track and its sponsors do not endorse, guarantee or recommend investment in any of the companies.
