FT 1000

Recruitment specialist Sellick Partnership ranked amongst the Financial Times fastest growing companies in Europe

Professional services recruitment specialist Sellick Partnership has placed in the inaugural FT 1000 ranking. The report, conducted by The Financial Times and Statista considered over 50,000 European organisations and identified 1,000 companies with the strongest growth between 2012 and 2015.


The aim of the report is to celebrate innovative and fast-growing companies that are the ‘driving force of the European economy’ and that are ‘generating jobs and sustaining Europe’s competitiveness’.

The list features companies from 24 European countries with the UK and Germany accounting for 47 percent of businesses featured. The ranking also names London as Europe’s capital for fast-growing companies despite the UK’s impending departure from the EU.

Jo Sellick, Managing Director of Sellick Partnership commented: "I am thrilled that we have placed on the first ever FT 1000 list alongside so many great organisations from across Europe. We have had a strong period of growth and to be amongst only a handful of UK recruitment firms featured is a real honour. I believe the listing underlines the strength of the work that we are doing to provide exceptional recruitment solutions to our clients and candidates across the UK."

Great Places to Work

Sellick Partnership have been recognised as one of 2017's 100 Best Workplaces in the UK by The Great Place to Work Institute, achieving coverage in The Guardian and Sunday Telegraph newspapers.



Great Place to Work® UK is part of a global research, consulting and training consultancy that helps organisations identify, create and sustain great workplaces through the development of high-trust workplace cultures. The methodology behind the ranking is one of the most rigorous available and uniquely comprises both an employee survey and an audit into each organisation’s management and HR practices.

Results were announced on Wednesday 3 May 2017, at a black-tie awards ceremony at the Westminster Park Plaza in London where Sellick Partnership were recognised for its high staff satisfaction ratings, its unique supportive culture and its employees’ immense level of trust in the company and its leaders. 

This year over 6,000 organisations were assessed, so to be listed recognises the strength of Sellick Partnership’s leadership and the range of innovative, creative and effective HR policies they have which creates their successful workplace culture.

Jo Sellick, Managing Director commented: “It is incredible to be acknowledged once again by Great Place to Work® as we celebrate our 15th year in business. We are only as good as the people we employ, and we know that by taking care of our employees, we are also taking care of our candidates and clients.

As a business we are committed to ‘putting people first’ and this starts with our employees. This accolade acknowledges this and is therefore extremely special to us as a business. It also demonstrates our reputation for excellence, innovation and continuous improvement. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Sellick Partnership for their ongoing commitment – we are delighted by the result.”
