What it’s like working with Forward Role

Here’s what some of our clients say about us…

Fahad Jabbar, Head of Software Development at BPP 

Over the past 2 years, we have worked very closely with the Forward Role team for filling most of the roles within the IT team at BPP. Each time we found the Forward Role team to be very knowledgeable, quick and proactive in the search. The Forward Role team have also met us in person on several occasions to discuss new roles and better understand our requirements in terms of culture fit and the right candidates. They’ve done market research, explored alternative options and headhunted the right candidates even for the most difficult roles which required rare and specialist technical skills. They’ve always delivered to our expectations in both permanent and contract areas, and have gone above and beyond on several occasions which has led to us working exclusively with them on new roles. We continue work with Forward Role very closely and highly recommend them for any recruitment activity


Mark Varley, Managing Partner/Head of Havas Media Manchester

We have worked with Forward Role on a number of roles and had great success in recruiting some fantastic new recruits to the team. They really understand the requirements of each brief and have consistently delivered strong candidates. Becky and the team are a pleasure to work with.​


James Lawton-Hill, Head of Marketing at Brother

Steve and the team from Forward Role have worked with the Brother UK marketing team for several years now and they have contributed to some considerable success in regards to the talent that they have recruited for the team. They are a highly professional outfit and can be relied upon to deliver when needed.


Kieran Innes, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Tootoot 

Mike is a great guy, he kept in constant communication at all stages and ensured both he and his team worked hard to find us the right candidate. Definitely a pleasure to work with.


Michele Trusolino, Co-Founder and CEO at Debut

It doesn't happen every day to work with top-notch recruiters but when you find one it's such a pleasure. Izzy is certainly one of them and she delivered a truly outstanding service!

We hired Izzy and FR Executive to help us with the search for our Marketing Director. We were on a tight schedule and therefore had to rely a lot on Izzy's ability to understand our needs, organise and execute the search, screen candidates and deliver to us only a handful of top professionals for the final stage of selection. Tick, tick, tick and tick. Within a few weeks and after only a few interviews we had found our new (fantastic) Marketing Director!

I enjoyed very much working with her, Izzy is hard-working and committed, very personable and a great communicator and has a real desire to over-deliver. Cannot recommend her enough!


Lisa Meadows, Head of Marketing at Ripe Thinking

Guy is a superb recruiter and his knowledge of the digital marketing landscape and ability to pick out the right people has always shone whenever I’ve worked with him. He puts a huge emphasis on listening to exactly what you’re looking for and making sure the candidates he puts forward match both the requirements of the role and the fit of the team and the company.

I’ve never had to sift through disappointing or poorly matched CVs and the candidates he sends over for interviews are always really well prepped. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him whether you’re a candidate looking for a new role or a client trying to fill a tricky or pivotal position in your team.


Michael Core, UK Marketing Manager at Össur

We needed to recruit for two brand new roles in a short space oftime and Forward Role were fantastic in delivering a number of exceptional candidates for us to interview leading to two job roles filled and two very exciting additions to the team.
