Our Forward Rollers

Dan Middlebrook

Hi, I'm Dan and I’m Managing Consultant for B2B at Forward Role, specialising in the Industrial, Manufacturing, Logistics and Construction industries.

I've worked in recruitment for over 15 years in both the UK and New Zealand, initially in Oil and Gas, then Financial recruitment and for the past four years, recruiting Marketing professionals. I enjoy working with candidates at all levels, from those seeking their first moves, to experienced senior hires and equally love helping businesses grow, from global multinationals to owner-managed SMEs.

Sometimes I take off my recruitment hat and put on my Stetson. On these days I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, running, mountain-biking, watching arty pretentious foreign films and Manchester City and occasionally drinking copious amounts of Spanish lager and red wine.
