Hi I’m Phill and I manage the Digital & Ecommerce Team for Forward Role. I’ve worked for Forward Role for the last two years and have specialised in the recruitment sector for the last 6 years, where I previously worked for Badenoch & Clark and recruited across all levels in the public sector before joining the team here in 2016. Prior to that I started my working career at HSBC and spent five years in retail banking before moving into the recruitment industry.
As the digital sector is massively expanding, I’ve been fortunate to develop Forward Role’s Digital Team and I now have responsibility of leading a team. I’m responsible for covering all aspects of digital marketing recruitment including paid and organic search, display, affiliates and my team specialise in content marketing, social media, ecommerce and online product.
Outside of work I enjoy travelling (something I’ve been doing a lot more of recently), online gaming, eating out and I’ve started playing football for a Saturday league club after 9 years away from the game. I’d previously represented my previous teams in European competitions when I was younger – wish me luck this year, I think I might need it! I’m also quite outdoorsy and along with a group of friends, we’ve decided to tick off the 214 Wainwrights in the Lake District.
5 quick questions
1. Favourite boxset of all time
Game of Thrones
2. Tipple of choice
3. Spirit animal
It’s definitely got to be an animal in the cat family, but specifically it would have to be a lion because their mane is the same colour as my beard!
4. Favourite album
8 Mile – Eminem
5. Talent for…
… sport trivia. I think that’s the only reason why my mates invite to the pub quiz just for the sport questions!
