Becky Smith

Agency Recruitment Lead

Hey I’m Becky and I’m Agency Lead at Forward Role.

I have over 7 years’ recruitment experience and head up the Agency team. At Forward Role I cover all things digital for marketing and media agencies including SEO, Paid Media, Account Handling, Project Management, Social & Content.

I started out in education recruitment before deciding to specialise in digital marketing, which I’ve done for the last 6 years and never looked back. After studying at Manchester University, I never left and have lived in pretty much every location within the city centre since.

Outside of work I love working out, spontaneous European city breaks and eating/drinking my way round Northern Quarter and Ancoats.

Impossible to choose! I’d probably have to go Craig David - Born to Do It

Gymnastics – not sure I can claim to be quite as ‘talented’ as I used to be, but I competed for 16 years and can still do a pretty good walkover.
