Recruiter Sellick Partnership has increased revenue by over 20% from the previous year.

The business, which has its headquarters in Manchester and offices in Liverpool, Leeds, Newcastle and Derby, recorded turnover of £114,621,739 for the year ending 31 December 2023 and pre-tax profits of £4,259,621.

The company acknowledged “challenging market conditions that have pushed candidate wages higher in certain sectors, coupled with the demanding economic climate in the UK,” but the year also saw the departure of the founder Jo Sellick in January.

Commenting on the financial results, new chief executive officer, Hannah Cottam, said: “2023 marked a pivotal moment for Sellick Partnership as we achieved exceptional success. Investing in a new IT infrastructure was, and will be, paramount to our continued growth and success for years to come and this will be a big focus throughout 2024.

“In addition to this, we continued with all our incredible in-house training, tailored to each member of staff and covering off different aspects of recruitment from purely sales-based training to companywide sessions on diversity, equity and inclusion, and stress management.”

The company, owned by French business services group Samsic, was also recognised as one of the Best Workplaces by Great Place to Work, as well as one of the Best Workplaces for Wellbeing, and Women. In addition, the firm recently secured their Investors in People Gold re-accreditation, highlighting how they support and invest in their people.

In January reported that founder Jo Sellick was leaving the business that bears his name 22 years since he set it up and would be succeeded by Hannah Cottam and Ray Wareing who have been working alongside him since the early days.

In 2019, SAMSIC Group became the majority shareholder of Sellick Partnership. SAMSIC is based in Rennes, France and is one of Europe’s largest business service providers employing 120,000 people in 27 countries.
