Leading marketing and digital recruitment specialist strengthens national offering with new members of staff

New hires take the Forward Role team to 32, making it one of the largest specialist Marketing & Digital recruiters in the UK – and the biggest in the north of England

Specialist marketing, digital and IT recruiter Forward Role has kicked off 2018 by welcoming five new members of staff to its award-winning team.

The new recruits – two Business Managers and three Recruitment Consultants – will bolster Forward Role’s nationwide coverage and expand its IT, Digital, Analytics and UX divisions.

And the new hires take the Forward Role team to 32, making it the largest specialist Marketing & Digital recruiter in the north of England and a major player on the national stage.

Managing Director, Steve Thompson said: “These five new hires tie into our strategic aims for 2018 focused on continuing to grow our nationwide offering and building our capability to provide our clients with both short-term and long-term recruitment solutions.

“It’s so important for us to continue to identify the very best talent in our industry and create our own future recruitment stars. We’re really pleased to welcome another intake of bright and hungry graduates that we can train and develop in the Forward Role culture we’re renowned for.”

All five of the latest additions to the team will be based at Forward Role’s new office in Manchester city centre.

As a result of substantial client demand for Forward Role’s tech recruitment capabilities over the past 12 months, Daniel Haydon has joined as Business Manager to grow the firm’s nationwide Interim IT offering.

Daniel comes to Forward Role from Talent International and has a 10-year background in IT recruitment. He joins Forward Role’s established Tech team and will be specialising in temporary and contract roles within the Enterprise Business Systems arena.

Joining the Digital team as Business Manager, Matthew Borthwick comes to Forward Role from LOFT Talent Acquisition.

Matthew has four years’ experience in Marketing & Digital recruitment and will be using his expertise to strengthen Forward Role's position in London. He’s also actively working on digital roles nationally.

Recruitment consultants, Josh PepperDesi Todorova and Ryan Dolan joined the business to help grow Forward Role’s UX, Analytics and IT divisions respectively.

Josh and Ryan each possess one-year recruitment experience and Desi joined the company as a recent Advertising & Marketing Graduate from the University of Lancaster.

The five new hires come at a crucial time for Forward Role as it looks to build on a record turnover in 2017. The firm is also gearing up to celebrate its ten-year anniversary in February.

"2017 was a fantastic, record-breaking year for Forward Role,” Steve added. “But with five new team members now on board, we’re looking forward to an even better 2018 and beyond.”
