Meet the team

Our Forward Rollers

Brian Johnson

I went through Sandhurst at 18 and then spent 12 exciting years in the Army with the majority of my time abroad and on Operational Tours. I also managed a stint whilst at University playing professional rugby for Gloucester, gaining caps for England and the Barbarians.

In the commercial world, a 6 year stint in the John Lewis Partnership and Waitrose in management and leadership roles followed before turning my hand to Recruitment. After 6 years at Michael Page looking after Marketing and Digital teams across the North and Midlands I joined Forward Role with the aim to help Steve grow it into the nation’s most successful recruitment business in our field.

I'm responsible for leading the company day to day across sales, commercial activity and setting the right environment and culture. I also look after the hiring, development and daily management of our recruitment consultants, which is a doddle compared to looking after my 1 year old Archer, who is currently climbing up whatever he sets his eyes on.
