Thanks for the multi-account tip; that was very helpful. Previously when I'd load a second tab in a browser and sign into a different account I would need to sign out of my other account which was not desirable.
I'm still seeking an answer to my original question; hopefully someone else will be able to provide a solution.

Simply go to your email address, right top corner, and 'Add Account' - after you have logged in on your 2nd account, you will find under your email address, right top corner, the option to flick between both email accounts - or even follow the previous process 'Add Account' to open another account if you wish.
Alternatively, you can indeed forward post from one account to the other under 'Settings > Forwarding and POP/IMAP' - Add a forwarding address and set if you wish to keep a copy in your main account.
Hopefully this will help you and solve your issue.
