Headforwards marks five years


Software outsourcing company, Headforwards, will be celebrating its fifth birthday next month.

In five years, Headforwards has grown from an idea of how to provide outsource development differently, to a team of 65 people.

To celebrate its anniversary, it is holding a day of celebration at its Pool Innovation Centre base on May 19.

On the day it will be running one of its software squad events where local school children are given the opportunity to learn some coding from the experts.

There will also be talks and presentations on the day, followed by a birthday party for the whole Headforwards team and some special guests.

Director ,Toby Parkins, said: “We’ve been lucky due to lots of skilled people wanting to either remain living in Cornwall, or wishing to return or relocate to the area.”

Headforwards, which is shortlisted for Employer of the Year at the Cornwall Business Awards, isn’t showing signs of slowing down either, and expects to be providing another 50 jobs in the next 12 months.
