Bolton Leanne Forward Lady

Leanne was very proud to win not only the Corporate Leader of the Year in 2011 by Forward Ladies at the Women In Business awards, but also last year to be awarded the Inspirational Leader Of The Year 2015. For Leanne to be shortlisted again alongside such inspiring business women, goes to show that her forward-thinking leadership approach is one to learn from!

Leanne started at Jobwise in 1993 and became aware that recruitment could be a very rewarding career. She quickly moved up the ranks; Recruitment Consultant, Team Leader, Manager, Area Manager, Director and then 9 years ago took over as Managing Director.

“At Jobwise no two days are the same, it’s a challenging environment which I thrive in. I love working with the team we have, and enjoy seeing people develop and progress within the company. I believe in giving people an opportunity like I had and every single manager has been promoted from within.

We have a vision of creating a world where everyone loves their job and this is very much part of everything that we do. I quite simply, love my job!” – Leanne Goodwin.


The North West final will be held on the on 21st October 2016 at the Radisson Blu Edwardian, Manchester and is sponsored by HSBC & Microsoft.

Best of luck to our Forward Lady, from all the team at Jobwise!
