Jo Sellick

Professional services recruiter Sellick Partnership has ended its 15th year in business in record-breaking form.

Permanent placements at the business rose by 55% in 2017, with Sellick Partnership’s consultants filling 326 positions compared with 211 in 2016.

Temporary placements also rose in 2017, albeit at a slower rate, up 6% to 1,315 roles, compared with 1,235 in 2016.

Sellick Partnership’s own team also grew exponentially during the last 12 months with 31 new hires were made, bringing the total workforce to 85 permanent employees.

Jo Sellick, Managing Director of Sellick Partnership, said: “Despite the ongoing uncertainty around Brexit, our data suggests business leaders are feeling more confident and willing to invest in permanent roles than they were this time last year.

“Temporary positions continue to appeal to both employers and employees alike, as they enable business owners to exercise a certain level of caution when adding to their payroll.”

The Manchester-based recruitment firm was recently named on the Great Place to Work® UK list and also featured in the Financial Times FT 1000 list of the 1,000 fastest growing companies in Europe.

Jo continued: “I am incredibly proud of all we have achieved in our 15-year history, and I am delighted to end such a special 12 months on a record high.

“It puts us in an extremely strong position as we enter 2018 with ambitious plans for growth, as well as an exciting brand and website refresh in the pipeline.”
