Overview of Laura

My career in recruitment began at Sellick Partnership when I joined as a Resourcing Consultant back in 2011. From then, I was promoted numerous times before becoming Associate Director of the Legal Division in 2019.

In October 2021, a decade after embarking on my journey with Sellick Partnership, I was promoted to the Board of Directors where I now assist with strategic, commercial decisions regarding the company’s future, as well as continuing to support the legal recruitment teams and our dedicated in-house legal compliance team.

I have won many company awards over the years, including: Highest Biller, Highest Billing Team and Sales Manager of the Year. More recently, I was awarded the Geoff Crichton Award which recognises my outstanding contribution to Sellick Partnership.

My team specialise in the provision of locum, temporary, contract and permanent legal professionals within the public, higher education, in-house and not-for-profit sectors. They cover numerous areas of law, including but not limited to: childcare, adult social care, contracts, property, housing, education, employment, planning, litigation and prosecutions.

I am also the Board sponsor for Sellick Partnership’s Charity Champions, something I am incredibly passionate about and proud to be a part of!  I believe it is so important to contribute within your community if you can, and making this accessible for our Sellick Partnership employees is a priority for me. 

Outside of work I can most likely be found walking my dogs, on the netball court or if I am lucky scuba diving!
