About Georgie

My name is Georgie, and I am the Head of Search for Shirley Parsons Australia, focussing on recruiting professionals across Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality. This is a diverse role, seeing me support companies in both permanent and contract recruitment across Australia, New Zealand and APAC.

I have had a varied background here at Shirley Parsons, starting my career in the UK in 2016. I initially worked within the Environmental sector before moving my focus to Health and Safety Consultancy and Services and heading up my team and the wider Careers business. I have enjoyed building great relationships with my clients and building my Health and Safety knowledge. I used my time during multiple lockdowns to complete my NCRQ Level 6 Certificate in Applied Health and Safety. In 2023, I was given the exciting opportunity to join Shirley Parsons ANZ, heading up the Australian office.

Before joining Shirley Parsons, I spent my time travelling the world, completing a BSc in Television Technology and Production and living in Australia for two years. While the bright lights of Aylesbury kept me back in the UK for 7 years, the Sun, Sea and opportunity brought me back to wonderful Sydney.

I am a keen DIYer and bought a house two weeks before the first lockdown, so I had lots of time to practice my DIY skills, turning an 80s décor granny flat into my dream home. I enjoy singing and can be found belting out a musical theatre tune on a Monday night at choir, or whilst completing some DIY, or any other time of the day or night, especially in the Shirley Parsons offices!

“Having worked with Georgie for the last 5 years I would recommend her to anyone looking for professional support with their recruitment needs. Georgie takes the time to really understand the requirement and cultural fit, this approach has led to a multitude of brilliant candidates first time around. Coupled with great communication when managing expectations, Georgie is a an excellent addition to add to you recruiting resources.”

.” – Adam Clarke, Managing Director of Consulting at Praxis42

“I’ve worked with Georgie for the past 12 months and she is certainly one of the best recruiters I’ve dealt with over the years. Georgie has excellent knowledge of the health and safety consultancy sector and the importance of "the right candidate". She understands System Concepts as an organisation and the type of person we want to recruit, both in terms of their technical competence and their personality. Georgie is excellent at keeping us informed, is open and honest with me and is a pleasure to work with.”
