Meet the team

Our Forward Rollers

Danielle Nixon

​Hi I'm Danielle!! 

A Yorkshire girl born and bred, I left the motherland to play Netball and study Geography in Newcastle and never looked back, and have lived in the North West for 8 years. I have over 10 years experience working within the recruitment industry across Client Delivery and have had the opportunity to partner with some really impressive businesses - assisting them with the streamlining of their recruitment processes, procedures and outcomes. 

I'm excited to be a part of the Forward Role team as Senior Recruitment Manager on the Tech side and feel lucky to be a part of such an amazing and ever growing team. I'm a huge fan of change management and encourage positive change within any business I've worked for - I never stand still and enjoy working for progressive businesses with the same outlook. 

Outside of work I'm still a keen netballer, mother to two amazing boys, wife to a very patient husband and remain part of a Yorkshire Rugby league family that I just can't seem to shake!!

I'm a very positive person and very solution's driven - possibly no filter most of the time but it's something I'm working on!!

5 quick questions

 3. Spirit animal

 4. Favourite album

I don't really have a favourite album - I'm married to a DJ so listen to what I'm given but basically anything from Soul / Funk / House genres is good for me!! 

 5. Talent for…

Finding the inner confidence in people and really pushing them to really excel - I love seeing others do well.
