Our Forward Rollers

Alistair Collier

I have spent my whole professional life in the recruitment industry.  After initial stints at the Interquest group and Computer People I spent nearly 8 years as the leader of Sanderson Recruitment’s business in the North.  My role was leading a highly profitable Technology & Change function across multiple locations. 

I have a real interest in change management and have been a vocal part of the local change community for a sustained period of time.  I believe that understanding the human side of change allows one to lead and mentor more effectively.

I have joined Forward Role with the focus of building the best technology recruitment function in the North.  With a blend of market expertise, high quality service and great human beings, we will succeed in doing so very quickly.

Outside of work my life is dictated to by my daughter Aoife’s social calendar, with the odd trip to the golf course thrown in for good luck.
