About us

At Parker Young we are all about the things you'd expect- relationships, contacts, partnerships and honesty - but mostly we’re about people.  Understanding our clients and candidates, what makes them tick and how to deliver exceptional service whether you’re hiring or job hunting.

Our Founder set up Parker Young to create a recruitment business we could be proud of. A consultancy with integrity, that would be a genuine asset and partner for clients and candidates. A consultancy that would stand out.  And that would always add value. We’re respectful and professional but always straight talking.  Clients and candidates work with us time and time again because they want a partner that understands the market and challenges them, in the nicest possible way. 


A drive to deliver

We have a genuine drive to deliver – and to do it in a way that makes sure clients and candidates enjoy working with us. We take exceptional care over what we do. In this age of anonymous CVs sent to hundreds of organisations, we rally against this. We’re about matching the right people with the right role, in the right organisation – not only in terms of skills but also cultural fit and values.  There will be no mass distribution CVs on our watch, ever.


Working with us

We pride ourselves in being genuine advisors on the marketplace.  We work closely with our clients and candidates to give candid advice and market insight, even before we start working with you.

We’ll also communicate with you at every stage of the process.  We will keep you updated with where we are on things and the latest status of finding you a role or great candidates.  And when we’ve done our job and filled a role, we stay in touch to make sure that its working out as planned for both parties.


Relationship Recruitment

Building great relationships is fundamental to what we do and to how we work with our clients and candidates.  We’re nice people. That’s doesn’t mean we’re afraid to say it as it is and get the job done for you, but we pride ourselves on being easy and enjoyable to work with. 

We endeavour to meet every candidate and client face to face – it’s the only way we can deliver on our promise of relationships and trust.
