National marketing, digital and IT recruiter Forward Role has boosted its award-winning team with the appointment of Emma Allison as the firm’s new Head of Marketing.
Experienced in the recruitment industry, Emma joins Forward Role’s growing Manchester-based team after leaving leading app developer Mapway, where she worked as Marketing Manager for two years.
Before that she spent three years working across a number of client-facing brands in the marketing department at a leading UK recruitment group.
Joining Emma at Forward Role’s city centre base to expand its IT and ecommerce divisions are three new recruitment consultants.
Vicky Walker joins as a consultant in the IT department, Aimée Buchan will boost the e-commerce team and Zac Donlon adds to the business’s IT contract capability.
The new hires take the Forward Role team to 34, making it the largest specialist Marketing & Digital recruiter in the north of England and a major player on the national stage.
Forward Role founder and Managing Director Steve Thompson said: “I’m delighted to welcome four more Forward Rollers to our growing family. They all bring a mix of extremely relevant commercial skills to the business and I’m confident they will play a big part in what’s shaping up to be another record-breaking year for us.
“We’re thrilled to have appointed Emma to such an important role within our Marketing team. It’s a really exciting time for the business as we look to launch a new brand and website in the middle of the year and she will play a key part in delivering these projects.”
Emma, who is from Eccles, Greater Manchester, said: “Forward Role has a fantastic reputation in the industry as both a brilliant recruitment consultancy, serving some of the region’s biggest businesses, and a great place to work.
“Steve and the team have achieved so much and I can’t wait to get started and play a role in driving the business on to even greater heights.”
