“No Response ”

Written on: 09/09/2015 by stephenseamus (1 review written)

I have purchased several online courses from Parker Ascott. I have completed two of them - and went back to Parker Ascott to request the certificates. I can't get hold of them via email or by phone. There is no response. I looked at their website and they last updated it 18 months ago - have they vanished and run off with my money. I feel really let down and concerned that I have been led into something that has all gone wrong. Does anyone know about them and what has happened to them? Have… Read Full Review

“A 4 star rating for parker ascott”

Written on: 26/05/2014 by 438Cunningham (1 review written)

I am going to give them a 4 star review. I too did the career start programme with parker ascott. I signed up back in January 2014 for there services. The training was good and I finished it within 4 weeks. Then they did give me help with my CV and I must admit it was a good improvement on what I currently had. Then came the wait for the placement. I waited for around 3 months before I heard anything back from a company. They sent me a list of all the companies they were in contact with, which… Read Full Review

“Success at last”

Written on: 24/05/2014 by Savanna254 (1 review written)

I am pleased to say that I will be joining an accountancy company on Tuesday 27th of May after waiting about two months. I completed the first part of the programme in under a month and was very keen to get started on the practice. I made sure that I was on their case and liked how I was treated with regards to the progress. I like how they never gave up and managed to secure me a placement in the end. Now I can really start my career in accountancy… Read Full Review

“Avoid”

Written on: 19/05/2014 by Brianna131 (1 review written)

I would advise anyone who is interested in this agency is to not waste your money. I have been waiting for a couple of months now for a placement and I am not satisfied with the service. As every time I had asked is there any progress I received the same email back 'We don’t have any progress as of yet. We will report back as soon as something comes up'. I advice anyone who is looking for a accountancy job is to email every accountancy firm for work experience majority of the time they will… Read Full Review

Well said. I completely agree with this. Don't take down this review. There is no point of having a review site, where the negative reviews are taken down for no reason.

“Not Worth It”

Written on: 05/05/2014 by Greta438 (1 review written)

I would not recommend their career start programme to anyone, over the phone it seems like you will get a placement. However, its been three months now and no progress on my placement. I have to keep emailing them and they keep responding by saying we are still looking and yet I have no idea on which means they are using to pursue my placement. Not worth the money or time, they don't fulfil their promises. Be aware… Read Full Review

“Very pleased with the training”

Written on: 16/04/2014 by Nicolss78 (1 review written)

It's my first time doing the online training. I am more the traditional pen and paper kind of person. So I was a little nervous about doing the Accounts course, however the course was most pleasing. The instructions were straight forward and easy to read. I got my certificates in the post today and I was most pleased. I particular like the fact that all the support was included as well as the test fees. Very pleasing… Read Full Review

“Not much help”

Written on: 09/04/2014 by Anon2999 (1 review written)

I signed up with their Career Start Programme as I was interested in the work experience portion in order to help my career prospects. The training section was fine but they have been very slow at responding to any emails. It has been several months of waiting for info on gaining work experience and every time I have chased this up I have simply been told they are working on it, with no details of what they are actually doing to help me. To date the program has not been worth it for me as I… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/02/2014 by RGilmore (1 review written)

Greatest ever recruitment company I have been with. Hands down, the best! I'm so excited. When they called me to go for the interview, I was so happy. I went out an bought a new suit to try and make sure I looked professionally enough to get the job. Then about a week later, they called me back and said that the employer wants to take me on. I screamed down the phone I was that excited. Amazing company, amazing experience. Only wished I found parker ascott earlier. … Read Full Review

“Thank you parker ascott for find me a job”

Written on: 18/01/2014 by DRodriguez (1 review written)

Dear Parker Ascott, I would like to say thank you for finding me a job. I found it difficult to find a job and had been looking for months trying to find something. After graduating university I left with all these high hopes and plans but in reality I was coming out to a recession with high unemployment and record number of graduate qualifying. I went to several job interview without any luck. The feedback that I was hearing was that I did not have the experience and I was applying for jobs… Read Full Review

“excellent career start programme”

Written on: 14/01/2014 by BlandeAl (1 review written)

I am a Graduate with a 2:1 degree from a good university but struggled to find an accountancy job after finished uni last year. I heard about the career start programme that parker ascott offered and thought I would apply. The advisor I spoke to over the phone was Paul, he was a very honest man and professional. I asked him a good few questions and he helped to answer all my questions providing me with great assistance. I enrolled onto the accountancy career start programme and paid £499.99. I… Read Full Review

I would like to recommend Parker Ascott for the good services that they provided to me. I had the pleasure of dealing with one of their recruitment consultants who was very professional and helpful. Originally, I though I was going to send my CV and never hear back from them. However, I had a over the telephone consultation with them and they really listed to my needs and helped me to understand everything. The consultant LISTENED to me and found jobs for me that I actually wanted to do… Read Full Review
