Careers Consultant

About Max

​My Name’s Max and I’m a Careers Consultant and specialise within the Construction Consultancy Sector. This involves speaking with a range of candidates and clients regarding Construction Health & Safety, CDM, and Principal Designer vacancies. I’ve been working for Shirley Parsons for almost 4 years and have always focussed on the Consultancy industry which I’ve loved – especially getting out and about meeting people.

Before joining Shirley Parsons, I worked in hospitality doing bar and waiter work after graduating from university, where I studied Economics.

I enjoy attending industry events and workshops and have been involved in running and presenting CDM specific webinars to try and encourage more people to join the sector – if you ever want to find out more about the wonderful world of CDM and Principal Designers, hit me up!

Outside of work, I enjoy my sport, whether it’s playing Tennis and Golf (poorly), or watching the Rugby and Football with a creamy pint of Guinness.

Unpopular opinions: I don’t enjoy roast dinners, I don’t like drinking tea, I love sparkling water and Beyoncé is overrated…please don’t @ me.
