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.



  • Jordan knows the business well, and goes above and beyond to deliver an exceptional service. He is a great consultant to partner with, and always provides well-screened candidates.
