What our clients say



Rachel Downey

Director at Manchester Life & Berkeley Group Holdings

"We used Forza to recruit our Head of Finance from a recommendation from a fellow developer who had also used Forza successfully. Lee took time to understand our business and in particular, our culture and work environment.

He found us two very strong candidates which was great as we had a genuine decision to make in which one was the best fit. Lee helped us make the decision and over a year down the line we are still delighted with our choice."


Kirsten Tomlinson

Finance Manager / Kamani Group

"I have worked with Lee throughout my career both as a candidate and a client. He consistently provides an open and honest service and has always worked hard to understand my needs and the needs of the business.

He has always provided candidates of excellent quality which assisted us in building and positioning the team for future growth."



Libby Witherden

Founder / MD, Solid Ground

"The Forza team are like an extension of our own, they take time to get to know the people in the business and understand exactly what the business needs and who is the right fit.

They provide a truly streamlined system which saves us a lot of time and hassle when we’re looking for new people."


Ryan Booth

Finance Director / Step Places

"I have had the pleasure of working with Lee and Forza Talent for many years and find the service they provide to be exceptional.

The level of talent Forza provides is always tailored to business requirements and staff retention of recruited candidates is very high."
