Forward Role enjoys H1 celebrations in Lisbon!

Author: Jay Kitchen

After a fantastic first half of the year, we thought we would take our consultants and support team on a weekend break to Lisbon. This year has been a record breaking year for the company so far and we have a lot to celebrate – surpassing growth and retention targets, new divisions, new Forward Rollers and a shiny new office just above Spinningfields. What better way to reward everyone for their ongoing hard work than to hit Portugal’s capital for some beers, sun, culture and team bonding!



After Barcelona last year, this year’s company away weekend needed to be special and Lisbon didn’t disappoint. This city has a bit of everything – beautiful architecture, lots of history and culture, a maze of bars in the Bairro Alto neighbourhood, nightlife (including a bohemian cocktail bar which was a converted brothel) and a “superclub” which we’re reliably informed is part-owned by John Malkovic. Some highlights include eating at a few top restaurants, a pool bombing competition with some middle-aged Germans after their civilised wine tour, and a few members of the team “fan-girling” over Hollywood actor Jason Segal having seen him in our hotel.

We’re now back, the team is stronger than ever and we’re ready for one of the busiest months in the recruitment calendar!
