Jordan Forbes has 11 years recruitment experience and joined BWD in 2009. A long standing and senior member of the BWD team, Jordan specialises in advising Finance & Risk professionals in the financial services sector, a team which he now heads up.
Jordan manages some of BWD’s largest clients and has undertaken some high profile projects, including a large, exclusive migration project for a global banking brand. He has also been asked to present market intelligence reports to board members and senior leadership teams because of his in depth understanding of the markets he operates in. His clients view him as a true subject matter expert and often call on his knowledge to advise them on the best course of action.
It is this level of engagement from his clients that transcends Jordan from a mere recruiter to a trusted business partner as he is able to not only provide the right calibre of staff to his clients time and time again, but can add value with his expertise and be a consultant, which is invaluable when making crucial hiring decisions.

I was delighted with BWD's approach. They understood the brief and put forward a well-researched group of candidates. Most impressive was the quality of information sent with tailored CVs and brief email summaries of qualities relevant to the role.

Harry was extremely friendly, proactive and helpful from the outset and really listened to my needs and what I was looking for. Therefore finding a new job became somewhat seamless and it felt like a very personalised experience from start to finish. Within a few weeks I received an offer from a company which feels like the perfect fit. As someone who usually avoids recruiters, I would definitely recommend BWD

You couldn't have been more supportive or professional, ensuring that I was kept up to date on a regular basis.
Jo, you even went to the trouble of calling me within 1 hour of each interview and checking in on me even from your holiday.
No-one could have done more, and I am very grateful.
1st Class service from a 1st Class lady.

James is an excellent recruiter with incredible interpersonal skills. His work was very professional and he was always available to speak and answer questions. I found James to be very proactive during the recruitment process and that he represented me well. Ultimately, James's hard work paid off and he helped me obtain an excellent new role. I would highly recommend James Woods if you are considering leaving your employer.
