From humble beginnings and our first office in Dartford, HR GO Recruitment is now a key part of a multi-million pound operation, HR GO plc.
Since 1957 we have placed thousands of permanent and temporary workers, and we are proud of the fact that since the very first day, we have paid our temps on time, every week.
This year we celebrate our Diamond Jubilee - 60 years of recruitment success.
HR GO was born out of tragedy and a lucky escape.
Our founder Betty Parkinson usually caught the 4.56pm train from London Bridge Street Station. One foggy afternoon in 1957 she happened to catch a different train and so avoided being caught up in a horrific train crash.
Betty quit her job in Tooley Street and found a temporary job in Dartford Paper Mills where she got involved in recruiting additional workers.
This early success fueled Betty’s ambition as an entrepreneur and she founded Parkinson Staff Bureau, later known as PSB Recruitment.
In that first year, Betty cancelled a family holiday to ensure she had enough money to pay her temps on time. Success soon followed.
Betty’s son Jack joined the business in 1977 and dedicated himself to growing the enterprise to the major plc it is today. Jack’s son John is the latest member of the family to join the business.
