Client Testimonials

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

Emma  –Parcelpet petfood subscription service

The guys at Forward Role will always have a place in my heart, and of course on my speed dial. Why? Because they placed me in Parcelpet a few weeks ago and honestly I have never enjoyed a job more. It’s a perfect fit, I love the people and the work is exciting every day. (Parcelpet is a new ecommerce business, selling petfood subscriptions for people who don’t want to have to remember to buy petfood but want high quality food delivered to their door.) I’m in my element and I have Steve, Izzy and the team to thank for the opportunity – thanks Forward Role!  

Charlotte Boss - Love Energy Savings

Forward Role went to the effort of visiting Love Energy Savings in order to understand more about our culture and the role we were recruiting for. They delivered great levels of service throughout the process and took away the pain of finding a fantastic candidate to join Love Energy Savings. Would highly recommend to other businesses.

Kathy -

"Boohoo have worked with Forward Role on a number of senior Marketing, Digital and Analytical job roles recently which have been very important hires for the business. We've been very impressed with the quality and fit of the candidates, as well as their approach to making sure the opportunities were right for both parties. Their honest and positive approach is very refreshing."

Nicki - BPP

"Thanks Steve (and team) for all your hard work in delivering our huge recruitment project. Your help scoping salaries and roles, writing job specs, organising venues, over 150 interviews over the past 3 months has been amazing. We've built a great team!"

Amy - PushON

"Guy knows this market and has a great network of candidates in Manchester.! He sent me three options and a wildcard (which I was impressed with - thinking outside the box) and we hired one of them. Excellent work - highly recommended. He's also a really nice guy!"

Zoe - Graduate Prospects

"I worked with Guy on the placement of our Online Search Manager role.
From the initial meeting with Guy, he demonstrated an extremely professional manner, a clear understanding of our needs, and a determined commitment to find us the right candidate.
Throughout the recruitment process, Guy kept in constant contact with me keeping me informed of progress. It was a challenging position to fill but the right candidate was found.
I would have no hesitation in working with Guy in the future or recommending him to other clients."

Ian - BOA

"I've known Steve for over 10 years now since working closely with him on a wide range of marketing initiatives at GUS Home Shopping. Steve has always been a great person to work with, not only as a colleague back then, but also as a recruiter in more recent times. In my experience of using recruitment consultants and agencies, Steve stands out due to his rare blend of skills. He has real depth of knowledge in the marketing arena and a huge network of contacts in the industry, enabling Steve to perfectly match client requirements to candidate skillsets and aspirations. Most of all, though, Steve always plays with a straight bat – he's trustworthy and reliable, not to mention being an enormously amiable person. I strongly recommend Steve on this basis without reservation."

Steve - BPP

"Having known Steve for over 8 years I can wholeheartedly recommend him. Steve always delivers, matching candidates to the brief perfectly. He is also extremely personable making working with him an absolute pleasure!"

Charlie – Major Retail Business

"Forward Role offered a highly consultative approach to the recruitment of my E-commerce Manager position. This was a new position for the organisation and a crucial hire for the future success of the business. The advice Steve provided on the match between the brief for the role, salary expectations for the level of experience and skills for this type of position and candidates available in the market place was invaluable. Ultimately this resulted in the recruitment of an excellent candidate whom I'm sure will benefit the organisation for years to come."

David – Leading Financial Services Organisation

"Forward Role not only went to the trouble to visit me to understand my brief, but also delivered good levels of service throughout the recruitment process – taking the time consuming elements of recruitment away from me. I will be recommending them to my colleagues."

Tom – Leading Manchester Advertising Agency

"The team at Forward Role were quick to grasp our requirement, always made themselves available, provided a professional and proactive service and ensured the candidates put forward for the 'role' (...sorry, too tempting!) were all of the highest calibre and shared the right personality fit. The net result of which has provided us with a strong, grounded and experienced candidate with a great personality whom I trust will remain within the business for many years to come."

Susie - Parasol

"Very impressed with the new Forward Role website but not as impressed as I am with their service. Great marketing recruiters!"

Alison - The Co-operative Financial Services

"I can highly recommend Guy to any organisation wanting support in finding the right individuals to strengthen their marketing resource. From the outset he was quick to understand my exact requirements, getting under the skin of the brief and ensured that the candidates he presented had the right experience and fit for my team. He recognised the need to find high calibre candidates in a timely fashion to meet the demands of the business. I cannot fault his professionalism and enthusiasm for doing a great job and would definitely seek his support in filling future roles."
