Management Team


Our History

From humble beginnings and our first office in Dartford, HRGO is now a key part of a multi-million pound operation with offices in the UK, Poland and Australia. Since 1957 we have placed thousands of permanent and temporary workers. We also invest in joint venture partnerships with established and start-up recruitment and technology businesses. This aspect of our operation has been a major catalyst for growth since our former chairman, Jack Parkinson, joined the group in 1977.

Our founder, Betty Parkinson, established the company in 1957 as Parkinson Staff Bureau, later known as PSB, before eventually becoming HR GO Plc. Her entry into the recruitment industry has unusual beginnings that sound like something out of a movie. You can read her story here: A Tragic Story and a Lucky Escape.
