Existing customers of Orbit Developments, Forward Role Recruitment have expanded into larger offices within The Courtyard in Bolton totalling 1,780sqft.

Specialising in the recruitment of marketing, digital, analytics and creative roles for high growth businesses such as AO.com, Missguided and Parcel2Go, Forward Role have experienced a high level of growth since its inception in 2008, moving offices 4 times within the Orbit portfolio and seeing the team double in size from 10 to 20 staff over the course of 2015 alone.

The company have also recently opened a Manchester office to expand the business and meet the needs of its customers based in the city centre. Long term ambitions of the company are to dominate the digital and marketing recruitment sector in the North West and break into the London and international markets.

Steve Thompson, Managing Director at Forward Role commented:

‘We’ve got a unique approach to service, with values focussed on ethical practice, high levels of expert industry knowledge and building client relationships with a focus on personality and trust.’

‘As a result, one of our biggest sources of new business this year was through referral, which is phenomenal in a traditionally sales led industry. I got a call from the CEO of a FTSE company recently via word of mouth recommendation and that’s the best feedback we can ever receive!’

‘Our new offices have been designed to create a great space for our staff to work and socialise in. We used Arena Creative, who worked on AO.com’s new offices to help us develop the concepts for the space and the result has a real wow factor for staff and clients.’

‘It’s a space that will allow us to attract and retain the best talent in the market and have a great time along the way.’

Simon Clarke-Williams, Director at Orbit Developments commented:

‘The small office scheme available at The Courtyard provides flexible leases from a commitment of 1 year upwards and enables small businesses to make the transition into office premises.’

‘It’s fantastic to be able to support new businesses and see them grow with us, as Forward Role have done. Their new offices and fit-out reflect the values of the business perfectly. We wish them all the best for the future.’
