★★★★★ - Jude Cummings

Charlotte is a dream. I always had a sceptical opinion of recruiters but had seen Charlotte's activity on LinkedIn & thought she appeared from a distance, a bit of a Superstar in the field. I told her this during our first chat - she laughed - which was a recurring theme throughout our recruitment process. Charlotte has managed to change my opinion of the recruitment field. She is the consummate professional, with communication consistent throughout & to the highest standard I've ever come across. Helping myself to find, what feels like a 1-in-a-million opportunity in Paid Advertising in the North of England. I'd wanted to work with Charlotte for a while now & I am beyond happy I did. There's not a single doubt in my mind that it would be a pleasure to work with Charlotte again in the (much) distant future. Thank you ma'am!

When I reached out to Stevie to ask if she was aware of any Social Media Executive positions available, she got to know me and had a pleasant conversation with myself. She knew exactly the type of environment I was looking to work in.

Stevie would help me feel at ease before the interview processes and provided me with practice sessions with herself!

Stevie provided me with an amazing service that helped me find a job that I absolutely love! If I ever need any further help in the future to progress in my career I will be sure to contact Stevie!

What a wonderful service Stevie provided! I am thoroughly pleased!

Cannot recommend enough! Max Benmayor has been absolutely amazing throughout. He is attentive and communicated promptly in a friendly and approachable manner throughout the process. He supported and guided me through the journey resulting in securing my first job in the industry. From the initial call, to interviews, to following up after to make sure everything went well, I can’t thank you and the agency enough.


★★★★★ - Margaret Jaouadi

Dan is a knowledgeable, diligent, and helpful recruiter who successfully guided me through a recent recruitment process which resulted in securing my ideal marketing role. His professionalism, attention to detail, and thoughtful balancing between his client and my needs made the whole process smooth and engaging throughout. I would recommend Dan to anyone looking for a new marketing role!


★★★★★ - Hannah Horrocks

I had an amazing experience with Max lately as he helped me to secure my new Ecom role. He was so helpful, understanding and patient with me which is hard to find in other recruiters! He truly had my best interests as number one priority and was an excellent support and help - couldn’t recommend him enough.


★★★★★ - Clodagh Walsh

The recruiter I dealt with was Becky and I honestly could not have asked for anyone better! She went above and beyond to check in with me daily, before and after the interview. She gave fantastic advice when it came to prepping for each interview. I got the job I applied for and I couldn't have done it without Becky's help! 100% would recommend Becky and Forward Role Recruitment.


​★★★★★ - Aimèe Beaufort

Adam has been amazing when supporting me with securing a new role. He took the time to get to know me, what was important for me and what I wanted from my own future and helped find me the perfect role. Throughout the process, he kept me informed regularly and was always professional. Even during the interview process he was supportive in giving me time to go through any tasks I needed to complete and answered any questions I had.
Adam was kind, supportive and really made the whole difference to what can be a scary process. He made the world of difference by actually taking the time to get to know me and what I wanted compared to some recruitment companies I’ve dealt with. I’m truly grateful for him helping me find a role in the most perfect company for me! Thank you Adam!


★★★★★ - Stephen Lewis

Considering my own 15+ years in the market and 10+ years as a hiring manager, working with Dan at Forward Role has been one the best experiences of my career when it comes to dealing with a recruiter.

Because of Forward Role I'm finally doing what I've always wanted to do. Ariana and Dan have been extremely helpful throughout the process.

I can't thank you enough for bringing this opportunity to my attention. I work for a fantastic company with the best team. Forever grateful! 🙂

Amber at Forward Role was a pleasure to work with. Over the few months we worked together she was so proactive, keeping in close contact, running new roles by me on a weekly basis and putting me forward for a wide range of amazing opportunities. She was great at keeping my spirits up during a tricky time and as a newbie to the market her support and advice was invaluable. I would recommend her to all my colleagues.

★★★★★ - Duke Tanson

Brian is one of the best digital recruiters I’ve had to deal with. He has a solid knowledge of the digital area and provides a good fit of talent and work culture for both candidates and recruiters. He supported me in securing my current role and was absolutely spot on in his recommendation and tips. I would highly recommend him for your digital recruitment needs.

Worked with Amber to secure my new role! She was brilliant with coaching me through the interview process and offering advice throughout. She took into consideration my communication preferences, and was a constant support - couldn’t recommend more!

★★★★★ - Hannah Wakeford

Gina went above and beyond in the recruitment process. She took the time to research every aspect of the role and company, preparing me to the best of her ability for all stages fitting around my needs and commitments too. She kept me thoroughly updated throughout the process from our initial call to discuss the role all the way through to my onboarding process as I entered my new company, making it clear to me I can reach out to her with any questions or queries whilst beginning my first few weeks and so forth. She is a credit to the forward role team and I cannot thank her enough for the time she has dedicated to my process. 10/10 would recommend.

★★★★★ - Ryan Green

I had an amazing experience working with Camoree Wright at Forward Role. I hadn't had much experience working with recruiters before, so wasn't 100% sure whether it would benefit me.

However, Cam provided an exceptional service and helped me every step of the way. He was encouraging, attentive and checked in with me thoroughly throughout my process of finding a new role. He helped at each stage of the process and gave me the confidence boost needed to secure the role I wanted.

Couldn't recommend enough!

★★★★★ - Jan Bartczak

★★★★★ - Gonçalo Carvalheda

I had the pleasure to meet Jenna Carman from Forward Role during a period of time where I wanted to change my career path and look for a new challenge on the UX world. From the first moment I interacted with Jenna it was amazing how natural all the communication was, and how easy it was to get started with the process of finding a new role. Not only Jenna is a great professional in terms of finding you the best opportunity for your career, but she also goes beyond on finding something that really fits your profile and your future aspirations, making sure you go somewhere where you’ll have the best possible experience. If looking for a new career opportunity, I totally recommend talking with Jenna, thank you very much for your work!

Paul C has an incredible amount of knowledge in the Cyber Security industry; he advises without the fluff and beyond recruiting and gives actionable career advice. Met with professionalism with every interaction. Would use FR recruiting again without hesitation.

★★★★★ - Alexander Brown

I've been very skeptical of working with recruiters in the past as I haven't found much success down that avenue.

Kath at Forward Role is the real deal. Communicative, supportive and enthusiastic. With her help I was offered a role which offered a salary 7k higher than what I was currently on and the support continued even after I'd been successful. I have nothing negative to say about my experience with Kath.

★★★★★ - Jessica Croft

Great experience with Mia at forward role. The whole process was so smooth and I was really looked after. I’ve been in my new role for 4 months now and I absolutely love it!

★★★★★ - Lydia White

I recently worked with Amber and I couldn't be happier with the experience she provided. It's been such a joy to work with her, she provided excellent communication throughout and went above and beyond. She was so professional, her enthusiasm and and positivity was a delight and she made sure she understood what it was I needed from a role. If you're after a recruiter that gets the job done and cares about her candidates i couldn't recommend Amber more.
