Financial and legal recruitment specialist, Sellick Partnership, has secured the prestigious Investors in People (IIP) Silver award on their first attempt of achieving the accreditation.

A market leading recruiter, based across six offices nationwide, Sellick Partnership gained the award following a rigorous assessment procedure that identified the strength of the organisation's commitment to its employees, and their contribution to the success of the business.
Cathy Bridge, Investors in People Specialist, commented, "To achieve Silver status on their first Investors in People assessment really is a fantastic achievement. The Silver Standard is extremely challenging to meet, and highlights a quality employer that is fully committed to differentiating themselves within the recruitment sector. Achieving Investors in People Silver shows a forward thinking and expansive approach to cascading best practice through every level of the business. It demonstrates a progressive approach to business improvement through people.”
In her report, she commented that, "Their career progression is excellent... they give people autonomy at a young age and support their learning with feedback and training. Staff feel valued, their ideas and contribution is acknowledged, and successes are celebrated. Having had a tough couple of years in the market, it really shows the strength of the brand and its people to achieve Silver now."
Jo Sellick, Managing Director of Sellick Partnership commented, "I am delighted that we have received this accreditation, I believe that it really demonstrates that we are helping to raise the bar for people development in our industry. It is a real recognition of the hard work and quality of the individuals that we employ - I am extremely proud.”
"As a business we are committed to high standards and clear communication, supported by a hard working talent strategy - which helps us to deliver our business goals and meet the needs of our candidates and clients. In addition, it promotes recruitment as a profession, and highlights the opportunity, support and quality of service provided within our sector."
