Hi I’m Mike, Head of IT Recruitment at Forward Role. I have been an IT recruiter for over 5 years, now focusing mainly on the placement of IT Developers as well as covering all IT positions from junior through to C Suite.
I found my way into recruitment via a career in Financial Services and started in the world of senior placements before finding my home with all things IT. An expert on the Technology market in the North West, my current focus is on IT development of all levels from Junior Developer through to Development Director and Architect. I take great pride in the fact I am helping to shape and grow the blossoming technology market in the North West.
Outside of work I'm a film buff, badminton ninja, cooking guru and massive foody. I'm also dad to a little girl so can easily be found having mini tea parties, going to the park, trampolining or judging talent shows! I also have a secret affinity to interior design stuff and have a project on my house currently.
