Not content with having started up and sold two businesses – Direct Resources and Recruitscotland.com – serial entrepreneurs Paul Atkinson and Gordon Adam launched their third company in 2000. Edinburgh-based Head Resourcing works with more than 50,000 job seekers and 300 employers, including HSBC, JPMorgan and Scottish & Newcastle. The company stormed into our Hot 100 list at number three last year. This year, it’s back in the top ten. Sales have jumped 160 per cent to £7.8m. So what’s behind this company’s phenomenal growth? “I’d been in recruitment for 14 years before I started Head Resourcing,” says Atkinson. “My little black book was bulging with contacts.” He expects to float the company within the next three years. www.headresourcing.com
