About Jack Parkinson

Since joining the family business back in 1977, Jack has proudly presided over the expansion of the company started more than 60 years ago by his mother.

From his very earliest days in recruitment, Jack has pioneered joint ventures as a successful way of driving growth while leaving entrepreneurial managers with a stake in the operation. His very first Joint Venture, Refrigeration Recruitment, was set up shortly after joining the business and capitalised on Jack’s own expertise in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry.

He went on to create more than 50 JVs over the years and the group has grown to become one of the largest family-owned recruitment businesses in the UK, with a turnover of £115m and more than 10,000 temporary workers employed daily.
