Overview of Ray

Over 20 years ago, I started working as a Finance Recruitment Consultant for a leading recruiter within the commerce and industry sector. There I met Jo Sellick and, shortly after, became one of the very first employees at Sellick Partnership.

I joined Sellick Partnership as a Senior Consultant, specialising in Finance & Accountancy recruitment. I was quickly promoted to Manager before moving on to oversee the entire Finance & Accountancy division in our Manchester head office, then in 2006 I became a Group Director.

In addition to my day-to-day recruitment role, I play an integral part in the strategic management of Sellick Partnership at Board level with a remit to oversee the training and development of employees for the business.

Much of this work involves embedding our vision, values and mission across the business, with succession planning and continuous development. Investing in the quality and expertise of our people is key to the success and growth of our company.

As we aim to continue growing organically, we recognise that the retention and progression of our staff will be a driving force to accomplish our goals and are proud to have been recognised for a number of prestigious accreditations that reflects this, including Great Place to Work® and Investors in People Gold.

Outside of my day-to-day responsibilities at Sellick Partnership, I oversee and run the annual Manchester Professionals’ Football League which has supported St Ann’s Hospice for more than a decade. I am a huge supporter of the work they do and was delighted to be asked to be a member of their fundraising board in 2019 to help them finance a new building, which will enable the hospice to deliver pioneering world-class care for everyone, for generations to come.
