Our Forward Rollers

Alison Humphries

As a Non-Executive Director at Forward Role, I support the business with strategy, planning and developing talent. I have thirty-five years’ experience within the recruitment sector, having worked as a Director and Managing Director of four listed businesses and hundreds of SMEs. I’ve supported organisations across permanent and contract, retained, Statement of Works and Recruitment Process Outsourcing, recently leading a successful business, with a turnover of £100m, through unprecedented growth resulting in a successful trade sale.

In addition to consulting on business strategy, I’m also an employment law advisor, conference speaker, columnist and industry commentator. I have a degree from Oxford University and have been awarded Honorary Fellowship of the IRP for services to the industry, one of only 25 people worldwide to hold this honorific.

Outside of work I have four children who have been nurtured to financial independence, so leaving me more time to do theatre and movies. And eat great food.
