What We Do

Executive Search

We rebuilt the recruitment model to focus on client vision and the human experience. Each search is as unique as your aspiration and definition of success. We are hired for those important or impossible searches that your teams are unable to own.

It all starts with the deepest of briefs to understand the leader you need, through to the employer brand attitude we express with target candidates. We conduct high-touch reporting with both client and candidate. Once a candidate has been selected, we activate our bespoke reference system and post-90 days coaching program to create long-term success for everyone involved.

"Caroline is a pleasure to work with and an amazing recruiter. We've been working with her on finding our own Lead Recruiter and she has set the bar even higher for us. From the thoughtful way she engages with talent to her constant communication with us and the candidates, I couldn't be happier working with her and Forward."

For Recruiter Training:

John Gallagher – Cleveland Society of Human Resource Management

"We had the pleasure of hosting Caroline for our annual Spring Recruiting Conference in Cleveland, Ohio. This is a professional development conference for roughly 200 local Talent Acquisition Leaders from the region. The conference attendees represent a wide variety of industries, company sizes and position roles. Caroline used a combination of professional experience, empirical research and practical applications to "connect the dots" for our attendees on the importance of emotional intelligence in their personal and professional success. This was a thought provoking session that left all of us with more questions than answers (in a good way). Caroline has a tremendous energetic and interactive approach with the audience where she is constantly challenging the group to wrestle with the topics. We’re all still working through her session homework! Our feedback on the session was tremendous and we hope to get her back to Cleveland again!"
