Important Update: Headcount To Become Pentasia

02 February 2023

Headcount Sunset

This March / April 2023, the Pentasia brand will expand its remit to include payments recruitment, with the Headcount brand to be sunset.

Since 2018, Headcount has operated in close partnership with Pentasia – the world’s leading iGaming recruiter. Both businesses form part of The Conexus Group, a portfolio of businesses providing services for payments and iGaming organisations.

This year, as part of significant expansion plans across the Group, Pentasia will expand to encompass both iGaming and payments recruitment areas.

We have therefore decided to retire the Headcount brand, with all existing and future services to be delivered as “Pentasia”.

Founded in 1999, Headcount has earned an outstanding reputation in the payments sector and built significant and powerful talent networks. Pentasia is proud to build on this for the future.

All existing Headcount consultants will remain in position as part of Pentasia and there will be no change in the services delivered for clients or candidates.

Pentasia’s Managing Director Alastair Cleland said “Bringing these two high-performing businesses together will create significant operational benefits that will allow us to access even wider talent pools and deliver more effectively for clients and candidates.”

“As a business, we already structure under ‘practice’ specialisms, and these practices (e.g. Product; Marketing; Professional Services) will now cover both sectors. This will allow us to offer specialist expertise while tapping into larger cross-industry networks.”

“The worlds of iGaming and Payments overlap extensively, and this trend seems to show signs of further developing. We believe the broader Pentasia offering will be ideally placed to service these exciting markets and deliver value for clients.”

Notice For Employers – Please note that all existing contracts – which already listed Headcount as ‘a trading name of Pentasia’ – will remain valid. We expect there to be no disruption in service delivery. Contact your consultant to learn more, or get in touch to learn about Pentasia’s expanded service offering.

Notice For Candidates – will continue to display jobs until March / April 2023, after which you will be redirected to listings on Existing candidate profiles will be retained in accordance with our Data Privacy Policy
