Diversity & Inclusion

D&I at Sellick Partnership

At Sellick Partnership we value the unique differences of our colleagues, candidates and clients and work hard to create and maintain a culture that is respectful, accessible and forward-thinking. Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) in the workplace is fundamental to success, and as a responsible recruitment partner, we firmly believe all businesses, regardless of their size or the sector, should be able to demonstrate their commitment to D&I and talk openly and honestly about what they are doing to support their employees.

As part of our D&I commitments, we are proud to be an APSCo Member Committed to Diversity, which means we have successfully demonstrated our commitment to encouraging diversity in recruitment. APSCo’s Diversity Commitment is a public promise by its members to take measurable steps to improve diversity within their organisation and within the recruitment industry. 

Our dedicated Diversity Champions have achieved, and committed to, a number of other awards and accreditations and have undertaken external training to continue to develop and grow our knowledge and understanding of inclusive recruitment practices.

Board Sponsor:
Hannah Cottam

"Cultivating an inclusive environment has always been a priority for the Board of Directors here at Sellick Partnership. Our Vision to 'shine a light on the future of our people' was devised by our board members and is reflective of our commitment to truly recognise and encourage individuality. 

Our commitment to diversity doesn’t just end with our internal culture and employees. We work closely with our clients to ensure diversity is at the forefront of our recruitment approach. Our Diversity Champions are empowered by myself and the Board to make changes, improvements and suggestions on ways that we can improve and be more inclusive. We are continually challenging ourselves, whether that’s through internal review or joining charters such as the Race Fairness Commitment. If you’d like to discuss our inclusion initiatives further then do not hesitate to get in touch with myself or a member of our team to see how we can work together."

Race at Work Charter

Sellick Partnership is now a signatory of the Business in the Community Race at Work Charter. We know that underrepresented groups still face significant disparities in employment and progression, and that is something we need to change. The Charter is composed of five calls to action for leaders and organisations across all sectors. Signing up means taking practical steps to ensure their workplaces are tackling barriers that underrepresented individuals face in recruitment and progression, and that their organisations are representative of British society today.
