Parseq pledges £1m investment in employee growth
The UK’s fastest growing provider of business services, Parseq, has announced that it will invest a further £1m in the development of its 2,500 UK workforce and recruitment across its seven locations.

Cope says: “As a business we invest significantly in our technology, new product offerings and the services we offer to our clients so we remain at the cutting edge of the outsourcing sector. But the asset which has, and always will be the most valuable and our biggest priority is our people.
“We pride ourselves on being about to attract, upskill and retain the best talent and this investment is not only testament to this view but it will ensure we can do even more to make our workforce the very best in the sector.
“We plan to grow our business over the next three years and this investment in our people is vital for us achieving this ambitious goal.”
The investment pledged will not only see Parseq extend its employee training academy further, but also contribute to the introduction of a new HR management system, investment in its office facilities across the UK and the launch of a regional initiatives to give more people access to employment.
David Carman, chairman of Parseq concludes: “Both the appointment of Parseq’s first group HR director and the financial commitment we’ve made in our workforce and recruitment demonstrates our desire to achieve commercial growth by investing in people.
“People are, and always will be, at the heart of our business and the reason behind our successes. Because of this we’ve worked hard to ensure every one of our employees can continually develop and in turn add value to our clients and our business.
“Our aim is clear. Not only do we want to be known as the multi-channel service provider everyone wants working for them, but also the business everyone wants to work for.”
Parseq has an enviable client portfolio which includes the top ten UK banks, utility providers, insurance organisations and charities which it services from its locations in Rotherham, London, Glasgow, Sunderland, York, Leeds and Brighton.
