Our Forward Rollers

Waleed Safy

​Hey I’m Wal and I have recently joined the Forward Role Technology team specialising in .Net recruitment. Coming from a Tech and Health Care recruitment background, in total of around 4 years’ experience, I have a great deal of interest in the tech industry.

In my before life of recruitment, I bounced around Europe, with the likes of Spain, Austria, France and Greece as a chef (this was genuinely to survive but it’s a good little skill to have). Learnt to ski, snowboard, sail and all the little bits I may have forgot. This has also helped my Spanish and who doesn’t like a home cooked Tapas?!

Before all the travelling, I graduated from Lincoln Uni in 2014, where I would venture to Spain during the summer holidays to help with duo language camps.

I would say I have an obsession with Muay Thai and MMA but with the generic stuff, I am Liverpool supporter and big fan of podcasts which I can sit there for hours listening to the Joe Rogan Experience.
