Ex-Professional Golfer promoted to Senior Consultant in under 12 months

08/08/18 Rachael Dent Manager, Electronics & Technology

We are delighted to announce that Chris Forsyth – Manufacturing and Operations Consultant - has been promoted to Senior Recruitment Consultant and voted Employee of the Month for July by Redline’s staff and management team.

Chris spent 10 years as a professional golfer and teacher following a degree from the University of Birmingham in Professional Golf and Business. His first 8 years were spent developing a business career in management and coaching as Head Coach at the UK’s fastest-growing golf entertainment venue. In the last two years Chris followed his dream and competed at the highest levels in professional tournaments. Due to a severe injury Chris was forced to leave golf and used his business education and experience, targeting the £35Bn recruitment industry as a key sector to build his next career.

Since joining Redline’s Manufacturing and Operations permanent recruitment Division, managed by Head of Operations - Rachael Dent, Chris has rapidly built positive relationships with clients, candidates and colleagues, gaining a deep understanding of clients' recruitment needs and requirements.

Chris has also qualified for Redline’s six-monthly Sales Conference which invites the top performing Consultants and Managers from Redline’s 60+ strong team to step back from the hustle of managing multiple recruitment projects, to review and analyse the last 6 months’ performance.

Chris comments: “I am delighted with my promotion to Senior Recruitment Consultant and being awarded Employee of the Month. The role of Senior Recruitment Consultant will allow me to work even more closely with clients, providing advice and guidance on improving their recruitment processes and results in this skills-scarce sector. I’m also really looking forward to sharing my experiences by helping develop and shape colleagues’ careers within Redline. It feels good to know that others in the business believe I am doing well and voted for me. It drives me to work harder and continue to progress and hopefully progress to a management role in the near future.”

Rachael Dent, Head of Operations comments on Chris’s fast-paced success:

“Chris rapidly understood the role of a recruiter and become knowledgeable of the manufacturing and operations sector which has been fundamental to his professional and reputational success here at Redline. It is a true pleasure to work with someone who has so much determination to succeed in the technical recruitment industry. He has strived to work hard since the day he joined, and his understanding of his role and responsibilities as a professional recruiter is impeccable. He has truly embraced the permanent recruitment sector and transformed himself into a top performing recruiter. Complementing his success, he is highly supportive of his team and has shared best practice with new consultants. I am truly delighted that he has received recognition for his efforts from the team at Redline.”
