After leaving Coronation Street, she went on to play Miriam Caterall in the Channel 4 drama The Mill, and in late 2014, she appeared in The Driver playing Katie. In 2015–2016 she played Connie Hawkins, later Towler, in the third and fourth series of Mr Selfridge.
In one of her earliest roles, Parkinson was cast in Always and Everyone. This was followed by the 2003 Channel 4 adaptation of Jacqueline Wilson's The Illustrated Mum. She later made guest appearances in The Royal, The Street and The Bill before joining CBBC's Grange Hill in 2007, in which Parkinson played schoolgirl Anna Duncan for six episodes. Parkinson appeared in minor guest roles in Waterloo Road, Doctors, Survivors and Shameless between 2007 and 2008, as well as the acclaimed drama Clay starring Imelda Staunton.
On 15 December 2008, it was announced Parkinson was to join British soap opera Coronation Street, where she would play Sian Powers. Parkinson first appeared on screen as Sian on 26 January 2009, as a friend of established character Sophie Webster, played by actress Brooke Vincent. Sian and Sophie later became the soap's first lesbian couple in the spring of 2010. Due to the popularity of the storyline, Coronation Street extended Parkinson's contract until 2011. Parkinson made the decision to leave the soap, filming her last scenes on 18 November 2011. These scenes were shown in an episode on 30 December 2011. She cited a wish to work on other projects and not wanting to outstay her welcome on the show as her reasons for leaving.
In March 2013, she appeared in a 2 hour long drama on BBC 3 named The Crash, previously titled One Day Like This. Co stars include Skins' Lily Loveless, Georgia Henshaw and Waterloo Road's Darcy Isa. Some of the filming took place in Kilsyth Academy in Kilsyth. She appeared in British singer Charlee Drew's music video for "Somebody Else".
