We understand that each of our clients face their own unique set of recruitment challenges. That is why we tailor our solutions to match specific needs. In some cases, we help our clients to find the perfect person for that hard-to-fill role, creating a bespoke shortlist of our most suitable candidates. For others, we assist in the creation of complete new departments, developing broader talent acquisition strategies that incorporate advertising and content marketing campaigns.
No matter how complex or niche your requirements, we’ll find a solution that works. We can organise networking opportunities to connect you with specialists in a particular field, and we can advise you on the best tactics for successful headhunting campaigns. If it’s a long-term strategy to fill skills gaps that you need, we can also help with talent pooling to ensure a constant flow of key candidates are available, as and when you need them. Whatever your request, we’ll create a service to suit.
Of course, our service is only as good as the candidates we work with. Which is why we go above and beyond, to attract and identify the brightest talent in the marketplace.
How does Forward Role connect with candidates?
Extensive and targeted database - This enables us to identify high-quality talent who are actively looking for new opportunities. Many of the professionals on our database are registered exclusively with us.
The Forward Role website - Our site has a loyal following of candidates, who regularly browse our Job Search section. We also offer a ‘Top Job’ feature that can be branded to raise the profile of a particular recruitment campaign, to boost response.
Industry and niche job boards – As a major advertiser on the largest national and specialised job boards, we maintain a significant online presence.
Social media – As well as posting new job opportunities, we also share industry news and tips with our active and engaged social media network. For our clients this also offers a voice that will be heard across all relevant social platforms, as a powerful way to gain exposure for their roles.
Headhunting – We have a strong track-record of identifying candidates with very specific skills and experience. What’s more, our reputation within the marketplace means that even if these high-calibre individuals aren’t actively looking for a new opportunity, our discreet approach is always warmly received.
Email marketing – Our targeted email campaigns, that fully adhere to GDPR regulations, are sent to select professional groups as an effective way to raise awareness of key roles.
Referrals – As a result of our outstanding quality of service, and excellent reputation, a large majority of our candidates refer our services to their friends, family and colleagues. To say thank you, we also reward anyone who passes on details of people they think will be right for a role, with retail vouchers.
Career returners – Forward Role’s candidate loyalty is demonstrated by the number of professionals who continue to return to us. Many of our consultants have placed individuals at each step of their career path; from Executive, to Manager, to Director level.
PR and advertising – Our close relationships with trade and media publications, on both a local and national scale, allow us regular editorial opportunities and competitive advertising rates.
