Our Forward Rollers

Rachel Wheeler

Hi I’m Rachel and head up the Product, Trading and Ecommerce division here at Forward Role, looking at appointments at all levels across the North.

I have worked in recruitment for 6 years, having worked for large corporates and start-up agencies across digital in the North West and London. Prior to this, I worked as a paralegal for a top 20 law firm and a legal assistant at a leading Chambers in London.

When I’m not working, I’m spending time with my little girl and thinking up new creative activities to keep her busy and tire her out! We’re often out walking in all weather conditions with my 2 dogs and escaping to the countryside at every opportunity. I love to jet set and explore new places and have an ever expanding bucket list.
