Headstar Highly Commended as Team of the Year

The Headstar team recently achieved the highly commended award, coming second as the Young Professional Team of the Year at this year’s prestigious Insider Yorkshire Young Professional Awards 2024. This accolade not only underscores the team’s commitment and innovative approach to recruitment, but also serves as a testament to their outstanding contributions which led to 2023 being a record year with the business achieving 20% year-on-year growth.

Recognising Emerging Talent

The Insider Yorkshire Young Professional Awards is dedicated to recognising and celebrating the brightest young talent across various industries in Yorkshire. It honours emerging professionals, providing them with the recognition they deserve for their hard work, creativity, and dedication.

The Headstar team were also shortlisted as Young Professional Team of the Year in 2023, and have now built upon that success this year by coming second. In addition, this year one of our Senior Consultants, Ross Wallace, was also shortlisted as Young Recruitment Professional of the Year for his work in growing the Accountancy Practice recruitment division of Headstar.

Reflecting on the team’s success, James Roach, Managing Director, said, “Being highly commended as the Young Professional Team of the Year is a real achievement and I am immensely proud of each member of the Headstar team and what we have achieved together.

This well-deserved recognition can be attributed to their commitment to excellence in every aspect of their work. From innovative new events to impressive client and candidate satisfaction scores, the team really has set a benchmark for professionalism and expertise. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
