Liverpool has undergone impressive change over the last ten years, attracting new investment and business into the city, as well as being transformed into a key UK tourist destination. As one of the North West’s two core cities, Liverpool is one of the region’s principal economic drivers, boasting some of the most dynamic parts of the economy – finance and banking, digital technology and professional services.
Home to some of the main key sectors for investment and business, Liverpool provides Sellick Partnership with access to the automotive, life sciences, contact centres, new media, distribution, food and drink, education and skills, creative industries, retail/ tourism, and the professional/financial services sectors – providing us with an opportunity to really increase our market share and provide Liverpool businesses with an exceptional recruitment service.
With a population of 450,000, Liverpool is a major employment centre, providing 226,400 jobs across 13,520 workplaces, of those, the city centre is home to over 4,000 businesses providing over 100,000 jobs. Additionally, the city offers Sellick Partnership access to an intelligent pool of labour at exceptional value. The catchment for Liverpool is more than 1.2million people living within a 35 minute area of the city centre's main employment locations.
Three top-class universities provide access to 50,000 students. Demand for undergraduate places is high, while graduate retention is 60%. The strong connections between the universities and the business community are key, with an emphasis on knowledge transfer, training and research. Added to this, there is a growing working population, and recent research demonstrates low levels of staff turnover and positive experiences of recruitment.
With a number of key construction projects in the pipeline - in retail, office, leisure, schools and hospital, now is the right time for Sellick Partnership to be opening up a new office in the city, and becoming part of the vibrant, successful and fast-growing commercial centre that Liverpool has to offer.
