Sellick Partnership is pleased to announce the appointment of two new Associate Directors – Laura Hayward and Mark Bailey – within their legal recruitment team. Laura and Mark will be heading up their public sector and private sector legal recruitment teams, supporting Managing Director Jo Sellick and Legal Group Director Hannah Cottam with the strategic direction of their legal offering.
Laura joined Sellick Partnership in October 2011 as a Resourcing Consultant and has quickly risen through the ranks. Now managing an experienced team of legal Consultants from Manchester city centre, Laura has been instrumental in growing Sellick Partnership’s renowned public sector offering.
Laura said, “I am absolutely thrilled to be taking a step up and moving into a more strategic role within the business. Having worked exclusively in the legal locum market for the last eight years I am confident that I can use my knowledge and experience to assist the Board with our growth plans through enabling others in the business to progress and develop whilst also continuing to further solidify and expand our position as market leaders. We have ambitious plans for 2020, and I am really looking forward to working collaboratively with the Board to achieve our goals.”
Mark has over a decade worth of recruitment experience and joined Sellick Partnership as a Manager in November 2015. Since then he has focused on the development of their Private Practice offering and now manages their legal team in Leeds city centre.
Mark said, “I am extremely proud to have been appointed Associate Director and am excited by the future plans for the business moving forward. Having achieved excellent growth year-on-year, I am sure that we will go from strength-to-strength, and I look forward to using my own experience to assist the Board and the company as whole to a achieve this.
“We enter 2020 excited by the possibilities to further strengthen our position with the clients and candidates we work so closely with, and in the knowledge that the talented teams we work with will continue to create success stories throughout the months and years ahead.”
The appointments come less than a year after Sellick Partnership sold a majority stake to French soft services provider Samsic.
Legal Group Director Hannah Cottam said, “Both Laura and Mark are exemplary recruitment professionals. Not only have they helped build our teams, and grow our legal offering, they have also shown that they are able to think strategically, which is a huge bonus during this time of growth for Sellick Partnership.
“My fellow Board members and I are excited to work with Laura and Mark. We know they have a great deal to offer, and their knowledge and understanding of the recruitment industry will be hugely valuable. We wish them every success in their new roles.”
