Line Pattern


We are here finally, after lots of thinking, planning and meetings! We are proud to officially enter the Manchester tech scene!

But who are ProFound!?

The Director, Richard Townsend is a career recruiter, but he is anything but a “typical recruiter”. He was lucky enough to train and learn his trade in an environment which wasn’t driven by numbers and meaningless KPI’s, which means that his  focus is on long term relationships with clients and candidates, and most importantly, an honest, up front approach, always preferring quality over quantity.

Does Manchester need another Tech recruiter?

Probably not, but, if you want to try working with someone who is cut from a different cloth to the existing tech rec’s, then we’d love to talk to you and see if you like what you see. We are primarily focussing on contingent assignments, that means you don’t have to pay upfront to see if you like our service.

Do we have any areas of specialism?

We do! The director of ProFound has spent 13 years recruiting in the Insurance, financial services and Legal sectors. This means that we have a unique and deep understanding of these sectors, client profiles, pressures.  We are geeks about keeping up to date with trends in these sectors.

So if you are looking for Tech talent and want to talk to a customer focussed recruitment consultant who understands the role you are looking to fill, but also understands your business, then why not give us a call.

What is our mission?

We aim to build a brand in Manchester which is synonymous with quality of service, deep technical understanding and total honesty, a go to firm within our chosen sector specialism and a thought leader within the tech community.

Whether we work together or not, we are really excited about getting ingrained in this buoyant and exciting sector. Our short time in the Manchester tech space has been a breath of fresh air, speaking to genuinely engaging, and enthusiastic companies and individuals with loads of creativity, we hope you will experience the same feeling when you deal with us!

You heard it here first – we are ProFound!
