Hancock & Parsons is your leading specialist recruiter of Microsoft and Digital talent. Clients rely on us because they know there’s a shortage of quality candidates in both fields.
Hiring the wrong candidate can quickly lead to disaster. So they don’t waste time and money on poor CVs and unsuitable applicants — they choose the recruitment agency that knows the market best.
Our decades of combined experience mean we find you the strongest candidates with skills that are tailored to your needs. You benefit from our unrivalled network of Microsoft and Digital talent — and our deep personal knowledge of their experience and abilities.
We’re also fast. When you ask us to recruit a candidate for a permanent or contract position, your dedicated account manager will provide you with vetted, shortlisted CVs in next to no time.
And if you’re looking for a new position, you’ll find our friendly, can-do approach refreshing. We work hard to find the best placement for your skills — our reputation depends on it.
The roles we are filling are so fluid and specific that there is little benefit to posting them on our site. We work in such a way that the only level of service we can provide is personal, so send us your CV or be in touch on the phone and we will work with you as an individual to consider where amongst our clients you will best fit. We need to understand your skill set, requirements and preferred environment to work in to ensure the fit that is essential to a great working relationship with your future employer. Our aim is not to deal with the masses, but to work with you as a person. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us make this happen.

Microsoft Azure User Group
Andy Cross and Richard Conway from Elastacloud with help from Chris Parsons and Joe Hancock from Hancock & Parsons established the UK Azure Users Group in mid-2011. Together they have built a thriving community of Azure users and developers with the help of Microsoft UK. The user group currently stands at over 1000 members and meets twice a month in London, but also in Birmingham and Manchester.
Meetings are attended by up to 100 people a time and all those with an avid interest to learn Azure are encouraged to attend. The group regularly gives a platform for the Microsoft Azure engineering teams and distinguished community speakers.

The group has been active since early 2011. Anyone can register for the meets at www.meetup.com/UKAzureUserGroup or follow us on @ukazure
