Forward Role Brexit to Barca

Author: Steve Thompson
Barca Group 300

It’s an indication of just how busy the North West Digital and Marketing recruitment scene has been this year that Forward Role posted another record half year, with a 42% year on year growth in turnover from January to June 2015 to 2016.

And whilst Brexit has been a little bit of a recent concern, we’ve not really seen any indication from our clients so far that it has affected confidence ahead of H2.

So we decided to do our best for post Brexit relations and to celebrate our success by whisking the team away to Barcelona for a weekend of culture, fine food, beers and lots of laughs.

Highlights were a rooftop pool in the Gothic quarter, with Estrella and Mimosas on tap, a Gaudi tour and some amazing Tapas organised by our very own trip advisor slash Ops Manager Lisa.

From a personal perspective it was great to see so many recent starters who joined the business over the last year bond and have so much fun together. Trips like this are great for building a culture and a high functioning team and I’m sure the dip in energy levels we all had on our return to work on the Monday will be more than compensated for by a happy team, excited about what we can achieve in the next 6 months!
