Our Forward Rollers

Grant Dove

Hi, I’m Grant and an IT Recruitment Lead here at Forward Role. I’ve worked in Recruitment for 7 years and have worked in technology for 8-9 years. After graduating from Brighton University in 2010 with a Sport Journalism degree, I then moved along the south coast to Bournemouth and worked in IT Telemarketing, before then heading to Portsmouth into IT Software Sales, finally ending up in the world of IT Recruitment where I remain today.

My technology experience spans across many areas, with an emphasis on Software Development (Java and C#). To date I have a background in IT Infrastructure and Networking, Telecommunications, Software Testing and Databases. I have recruited for roles at all levels; from junior through to Director, so my experience is broad and varied.

I have recently relocated to Manchester and finally away from the sunny south coast, to recruit within Open-Source Development here at Forward Role. I will be focusing on the Manchester and North West markets and aim to be the ‘go to Recruiter’ for everything Open-Source.

On a personal level, I enjoy football, boxing, travelling and gin, gin and more gin.
