This month we're proud to share the latest edition of Recruiter Magazine, featuring our very own Steve on the front cover. A few weeks back we invited Recruiter Magazine over to our Manchester HQ, to talk about our Incubator initiative and how we've been trying to give back to up and coming tech businesses.
The thinking behind the Forward Role Incubator was to support local start-ups through the most daunting stage of their business, with free office space and back-office support, as well as advice and on-hand expertise. In the last twelve months we’ve been happy to help two innovative business’; Dr Fertility, a web-based service providing advice, information and products related to fertility, and Tootoot, an online platform that allows students to report bullying and other student welfare concerns.
Recruiter were interested to hear more about the initiative, chatting first hand to those we have helped, and describing the Forward Role Incubator as a "radical concept".
"Recruitment start-ups are nothing new, but a recruiter helping non-recruitment businesses start up and flourish is a radical concept." Colin Cottell, Recruiter Magazine
We're delighted that both Dr Fertility and Tootoot have gone from strength to strength, growing their staff numbers and moving into their own city centre offices.
“If we had been working from home, I don’t think we would be where we are now. [Forward Role] have been pivotal in our journey” Kobi McCardle, Dr Fertility.
