About Parker

Why Work With Parker?

We are a recruiting agency based in Seattle and founded in 1979. Our business is built on personal connections of trust and mutual respect. Parker has been cultivating relationships with experienced contractors as well as many of the Puget Sound’s most progressive, industry-leading companies for over 35 years.

With a client portfolio that includes some of Western Washington’s best places to work, we offer our contractors opportunities to gain valuable, career-building experience along with recognition and direct access to rewarding contract and full-time positions.

Teaming Up For Success

Integrated, hands-on recruitment teams are a huge part of how we make great matches that keep our contractors and clients happy. We believe that the best way to understand and meet the needs of different people and companies is to leverage the combined knowledge and perspectives of a collaborative team.

Parker values direct relationships over full automation. Our team approach and human touch get people to work faster and in better situations.

As you become a member of the Parker team, you can expect to meet and interact with several people who really care about getting to know you and how they can best help you succeed. First, a Recruiter and Recruiting Assistant will take the time to understand your professional and personal strengths and preferences. As you approach and accept a position, a client-facing Sales Rep will provide you with the inside scoop on the company. Along the way, an administrative professional will be there to help ensure a seamless experience.

The most refreshing thing you’ll notice about working with Parker Services is how hard we work to support you. We believe in giving our contractors the respect, recognition and resources they deserve.

A different experience; a better outcome. That about sums up what makes Parker Services one of the most respected staffing firms in Seattle. Our reputation for matching the right work to the right talent is unsurpassed.

Success stories

I just want to say that both of my experiences working with Parker (in 1994 and 2013) have been wonderful. Each one separately has been better than my experiences (both as an employer and employee) with all other firms combined!


Thanks to you guys, I have a job I am proud to have. So for that, I thank you.


Devin is always willing to help and is a great team player.


My experience with Parker has been fantastic! I just wish I had found the service sooner. I spent a year limping along with a couple other staffing agencies that I now realize just wasted my time.


Elizabeth has handled herself with a calm self-assurance and her attitude will always make her a welcome addition to our group.


They want me full time!!!


Marvin has exceeded all expectations with what he has had to take on. He is a huge asset to the team. We are very lucky to have him.


From the moment Nicole started her temporary assignment, she has been a welcome addition to our division.


Paul was incredibly helpful in orchestrating our contract.


You have found me a great position, where I feel so useful and needed.


If I could get temps like Tom every time... I would ALWAYS use Parker.
