One of the key principles of our growth model is to attract and retain the best people for longer than our competitors. In order to achieve this, we have built a culture and a business plan that eliminates the constraints that traditional businesses put on the careers of their staff.

Our Headquarters is based in Aylesbury, UK. We also have a fast-growing US business with offices in Boston and Los Angeles. Moreover, we have continued our international expansion with offices in Canada, the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Taiwan and Australia. If being part of a fast-growing international company appeals to you, then apply to join Shirley Parsons today!

Enjoy & Belong!

We’re a social bunch and as such there are always events going on like pub quizzes, ten-pin bowling, golf tournaments, and cocktail evenings. We also believe in celebrating as a team and have had some amazing incentives over the past couple of years, including trips to Prague, Budapest, and Porto, a day at the races in a hospitality box, directors' lunches at some top London restaurants, and outings to the theatre and comedy clubs.. We work hard, we play hard! Join us, it’ll be fun!

Training & Development

We invest heavily in our staff and we offer continuous training and support to help you develop personally and professionally. This applies whether you join us as a fresh graduate or a grizzled industry veteran.

When you join us as a graduate or trainee you will immediately join our 12-week Training Academy; this is delivered in-house and provides an overview of all areas of the recruitment process. It uses a mixture of classroom based sessions, work-related activity targets and at-the-desk training. During your time in the Academy, you will also be allocated a buddy, in addition to your line manager, who will be there to offer you help and support during your first 3 months.

Beyond the Academy, we will provide you with a mix of internal, external and online training, dependent on your training needs and preferred ways of learning.

Grow Your Career With Us

At Shirley Parsons, we believe that the only restriction on your career development is your own potential. Therefore, we will support you to create a career path that helps you achieve your ambitions.

We believe in always moving forwards and continually challenging our people to develop their skills further so that their natural talents allow them to achieve their full potential. Every role in our company is an important one and we will support you to be as great as you possibly can be in that role. Should people wish to progress into a different role then we have no shortage of opportunities for those who deliver, whether that be in management, leadership, or as an entrepreneur.

Apply Today!

Whether you are a graduate looking for your first job, or an experienced recruitment consultant looking to take your career to the next level, we would love to hear from you.

Our hiring process tests all aspects of an individual and we are very discerning about whom we bring on board.

This is because we know the types of people that have the potential to succeed within our company and those that do not. Integrity, intelligence, hunger, and positivity are some of the qualities we look for.
