We believe we’ve created this platform at Parallel, a culture that breeds success.
Our culture is based on shared values - our staff are Ambitious, Positive, Exciting, Rewarding and Innovative.
We want people who work for us to stand out from the crowd, people who understand the importance of making sure our clients and customers feel special and important.

In any recruitment role, there’s always pressure to deliver. It comes with the territory. You’ll need to have the ability to keep going no matter what the challenges are and always believe in making your own luck.
A large part of your day is spent on the phone or out networking - meeting your clients and candidates. So you’ll need to be organised, positive and a great communicator, this after all is a people industry.
If you’re the type of person who keeps going, whatever the knockbacks and truly believe you can make a difference then please get in touch.

Every new employee benefits from our comprehensive induction and training programme. You’ll be given the skills you need to become a successful recruitment consultant and the confidence you need to be a success.
No two days are the same in recruitment. Adaptability and the ability to multi-task are essential. We’ll teach you to be organised and structured. You’ll also learn to become an expert in your technical market.
The markets we operate in require strong networking skills and you’ll be trained in the art of relationship building. You’ll need to have the ability to source new candidates and clients and build strong relationships with them.

MY LIFE AT PARALLEL...
“I joined Parallel Consulting in the spring of 2011 after being recommended to them through a friend.
After finishing university and spending some time travelling I realised my ability to influence, love of life and naturally inquisitive nature suited recruitment and a job dealing with people. I wasn’t sure what to expect but knew it was always a role that involved lots of hard work and targets.
From day one I was given great support. I benefited from the extensive training program, it gave me the confidence and belief to start developing my skills. Parallel Consulting backed me by giving me the opportunity to develop a brand new market for them, mapping out and planning on how I would achieve success.
I made my first placement quickly and from then on have never looked back, I enjoy the fast paced nature of the business and the fact every day is different, some days are great, some are tough but I always know what I put in, I’ll get out. It’s really hard work but I love it!
I’ve been on an all-expenses paid trip to Miami, dined at some of the best restaurants in the world, won various competitions including shopping trips to Selfridges and love the social aspect of the job, it’s a work hard, play hard environment!
I’ve now been given mentoring responsibilities and I’ve been put on a management training program to help develop my skills. It feels like I only started a few weeks ago and I’m looking forward to where my career will take me”
