What employees say

Working at Sellick Partnership opened my eyes to valuing myself as an important member of the team. I’m appreciated for what I do, which is very refreshing compared to what I was used to. My ideas and contributions are taken seriously and this truly keeps me satisfied and motivated. The friendly work culture makes it easy to build relationships with other staff and top management. The Directors are so approachable and they all know me by my name. I’m always encouraged to take part in projects that suit my interests and always supported with my goals. It’s truly really heart-warming to be a part of such an amazing work environment where people are treated equally and with respect despite of their hierarchy within the company.

What defines us

At Sellick Partnership we believe that it is our people who are vital to providing inspiration. By valuing emotional intelligence, empathy and commitment above all other qualities, our teams encourage each other and deliver, which can be seen in our results and track record. Our vision makes it clear that it is not jobs at Sellick Partnership that really interest us, it is careers – in fact, the word “job” is rarely used or heard.

Culture is of huge importance to Jo Sellick and the Board, and although this is largely an internal consideration, it is reflected in everything we do as a business. Sellick Partnership is now a much larger company than it was a few years ago but the business still has a ‘family’ feel to it and the Board are keen not to lose this.

Our honest and open culture along with our cross-functional team meetings help us to share ideas, discuss any issues and support each other as and when necessary. Our values continue to be at the heart of everything we do – ensuring that we listen and understand the challenges faced.

Camaraderie is so much a part of all the teams, both through work and out-of-hours activities. Genuine friendships have developed amongst colleagues over the years. These friendships have in turn been instrumental in bringing about a number of fantastic results from staff longevity to team generated outcomes, and from staff going the ‘extra mile’ to a genuine desire to help each other through very testing times.

The culture of respect and fairness has led to the acquisition of an increasingly diverse workforce (with all of the obvious benefits this accrues) and our culture of engagement and loyalty has led to a steady growth in a number of teams.  

What inspires us

Sellick Partnership has many initiatives and policies in place to ensure all employees experience the flexibility and support they need to enjoy a balanced lifestyle. Recruitment is a fast-paced and demanding environment to work in, and we acknowledge the need to ensure that there are channels in place for employees to balance their work life with their personal lives – in line with our vision.

In 2015 we launched SP Benefits – a bespoke benefits package tailored to our employees. We want all employees to be as happy as possible at Sellick Partnership and reward them in a number of ways. We actively encourage recognition of hard work and have a number of schemes available so that everyone can be rewarded for their efforts as well as enjoy a healthy work/life balance.

It is also worth noting that we really care about what our employees think about how we reward them. This is why we introduced flexible rewards for our Stars of SP initiative and on the Wheel of Success – it was important to give people options so that they can ‘spend’ their reward however they best see fit.

Sellick Partnership also host three large company-wide events throughout the year for all employees to come together and celebrate success and recognise achievements. All three company-wide events are all-expenses paid all day/night to really thank and reward our employees for all their efforts throughout the year.

Word from the top

I wanted to build a creative culture, I wanted it to be autonomous, I wanted there to be a meritocracy, I wanted it to be dynamic and entrepreneurial - and it had to be fun. I want people to come into the office in the morning and I want them to enjoy their time with us. Work is such a huge part of someone's life so we have to make sure it's an environment they are happy in.

Career and jobs

Application tips

As a business we look for ambitious, hard-working individuals, with excellent communication skills and the confidence and tenacity to be proactive, and not only see, but make their own opportunities. Emotional intelligence and a positive attitude are key attributes found in those joining us. With these characteristics we are able to train and develop the right individual to build the skill-set and experience to enjoy a successful and long-term career within the recruitment industry.

We have also started recruiting for people with specific sector experience. For example, we have hired employees who are also qualified solicitors to work in our Legal recruitment team.

Our process is all about covering all areas such as technical skills, practical experience, but much more importantly, cultural fit. Our Internal Talent Manager is extremely experienced in recruiting high-calibre professionals to work at Sellick Partnership. Whilst we look for key characteristics and traits within prospective employees, we also understand that every team has a slightly different dynamic.

Our great workplace

Once we receive all applications, the Internal Talent Manager will evaluate and assess which candidates have the relevant qualifications and experience required for the role. Where appropriate we have a 3 stage interview process which includes a telephone interview, a face-to-face interview and then a more informal interview with our Managing Director Jo Sellick. For apprentices, graduates and junior candidates, we do advise you to spend some time reviewing our website and understanding more about a career in recruitment in general to really see if it is for you ahead of the telephone interview.

Our Internal Talent Manager will offer support and advice to each candidate from the beginning to the end of the recruitment process. We strive to give all candidates feedback on their performance at every stage of the interview process within two working days, regardless of whether or not they have been successful.
