Shirley Parsons, the UK’s largest recruitment agency with a dedicated quality practice, is sponsoring the honorary CQI Achievement award in the CQI’s inaugural International Quality Awards. The awards ceremony will take place this November.

For over a decade, Shirley Parsons has been the recruiter of choice in the health and safety, environmental and quality (HSEQ) arena and aims to be “first in mind for HSEQ talent”. It is the only specialist recruitment agency headed by a Chartered safety professional.

The Shirley Parsons team focuses solely on recruiting within its specialism, using the CQI Competency Framework to write job specifications and to help candidates with career development. This informed process delivers the best results, setting a high benchmark with roles and improving professional standards for the quality profession as a whole.

A partnership with an award that recognises and celebrates the best achievements and people in quality is a natural fit.
