Jordan Forbes


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.



  • The level of service you’ve provided has been the best I’ve experienced. (1) I’ve never felt better prepared for an interview, [allowing] me to go in and perform confidently. (2) You called when you said you would, kept me updated, and been flexible in your channels of communication to allow me to get on with my day job. (3) You’ve been pleasant to deal with all the way through the process.

  • 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.

  • The service we receive is exceptional and nothing is too much trouble. By recruiting the highest calibre of individuals we have been able to grow significantly, and in both 2014 and 2015 appeared in the Citywire Top 100.

  • 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
