Record financial year for professional services recruiter

Jo Sellick

Professional services recruitment specialist, Sellick Partnership, has reported a record-breaking financial year.

The Manchester-headquartered business, which has a base in Leeds, posted a turnover of £95m for the year ending 31 December 2022 – 30% up from the previous year.

The company also celebrated its 20th year in business in 2022.

Jo Sellick, founder and managing director, said: “I couldn’t be prouder of our 2022 financial year results; it’s an amazing achievement, and all in our 20th year of business.

“Culturally at Sellick Partnership, the group directors have always billed. We all still get calls from clients and candidates who we have worked with for years and who we continue to help and support.

“This keeps everyone grounded and reminds us of when we first started out, and all the hard work we had to put in to get us to where we are today.

“It’s also a really positive demonstration for when new people join us, they see their company directors picking up the phone and speaking to candidates, attending client meetings and working really hard to support the business. I think that’s really powerful.”

The business is still actively looking for an acquisition in the South West or the South East to grow its UK offering.

Sellick added: “We are looking to grow our footprint and it is clear that we need a location in the south of the country.

“Ideally, we want to work with a business that shares our values and ambitions, and having the right people join us is critical.

“We are excited about this, as it will give us a huge opportunity to continue to develop Sellick Partnership and focus on delivering a brilliant service for our clients.”
