Jackie Parkhill

We sat down with Jackie and asked her a few extra questions about her time with Spencer Riley.

Q: What was your first impression of Spencer Riley?

A: Wow.  After spending a long (and I mean long) time in Law, I think I was a rabbit in headlights.  However, everyone has been wonderfully supportive, and it certainly makes my life a little easier working with great colleagues who want to succeed.

Q: What's been your favourite part of working at Spencer Riley?

A: Everything really – the culture, the people and their constant drive for wanting to do the very best for their clients and candidates.

Q: What does the future hold at Spencer Riley?

A: The future really is bright for Spencer Riley.  We have a great MD whose vision for success and growth will see it succeed.

Q: Who's been your biggest inspiration at Spencer Riley?

A: I think it has to be our Office Manager, Claire Dove.  She supports all of us – quietly, proficiently and is always one step ahead.  No wonder she wins so many internal awards for her caring attitude.  She’s become a good friend and sounding board.

And now about you......

Q: Nike or Adidas?

A: New Balance!

Q:  Beer or spirits?

A: Spirits - particularly rhubarb and ginger gin or Campari (with tonic) and my absolute favourite, Benedictine.

Q: Star Wars or Star Trek?

A: Star Wars - my kids would hang me out to dry if I said anything different.

Q: Europe or long haul?

A: Both - Europe for a cheeky long weekend away and a long haul for total relaxation.

Q: Favourite place?

A: Harrogate - a beautiful town - in which I am very fortunate to live.  I'm also surrounded by everyone that matters to me.

Q: Football, Rugby, or Cricket?

A: Football.  Oh, and golf.

Q: Favourite team?

A: There can only be one, surely?  LIVERPOOL.

Q: What would you sing at Karaoke?

A: Absolutely nothing if you wanted the clientele to remain where they sat 😮😜

Q: Ever had a nickname?

A: Kie - as in Jackie - it's something my husband calls me and now others have cottoned on.

Q: How would your friends describe you?

A: Always there for them....

Q: What's your go-to guilty pleasure?

A: My own homemade ice cream dessert called Amaretto Semifreddo.

Q: What 4 people would you have dinner with (living or dead)

A: Umm - Hugh Jackman, Gerard Butler, Jurgen Klopp and Daniel Craig - that should do it.
