COMBA2017Sellick Partnership are delighted to have been selected by Downtown in Business for the City of Manchester Business Awards 2017 (COMBA). Nominated under the ‘Business of the Year’ category we are proud to have been mentioned alongside household names such as Boohoo, Gateley plc, KPMG, Please Hold and VSI. Winners will be announced on Thursday 22nd June 2017 at a glitzy awards ceremony held at The Principal Hotel, Manchester.

This is the third time Sellick Partnership have been nominated for a COMBA award by a member of our business community, which is a huge compliment and demonstrates our commitment in delivering an excellent service to not only those in Manchester, but also across the UK.  

But what exactly is the criteria for ‘Business of the Year’? 

Celebrating 15 years of putting people first 

This year we are celebrating our fifteenth year in business, and over our long tenure we have built strong relationships with private, public and not-for-profit organisations in Manchester, which has established itself as having a vibrant professional services sector to rival even London. 

Strong year-on-year growth 

Financially, we are on course for another positive year. Many of our Manchester-based consultants are recognised as top-billers which reinforces our position as a market-leading professional services recruitment specialist. Last year, all business areas exceeding expectation; audited accounts show turnover grew by 17 percent, and net fee income grew by 14.1 percent. 

Sporting and charitable commitments

Our position is further strengthened by our annual sporting tournaments including the Manchester Professionals’ Football League (MPFL) and Manchester Professionals’ Cricket League (MPCL). Both tournaments have become regular fixtures in the Manchester business community’s social calendar, providing an informal and fun platform to network. The funds raised from our sporting events are donated to national and local charities including St Ann’s Hospice and Lord’s Taverners, who in 2016 we donated a total of £15,000 to.  

Our people 

Of course our underlying success is down to our people. In the Manchester office alone we employ over 40 people and receiving accolades such as Investors in People and ISO 9001 demonstrate our commitment to our teams. Our working culture is one of partnership, teamwork, entrepreneurship and leadership infused with a unique sense comraderie in what has a reputation as a cutthroat industry. Many employees who initially joined the business in junior roles have progressed to take on additional responsibility at management level. Many now successfully lead our regional branches and excel at delivering a first-rate recruitment service to organisations and candidates across the UK. 

2017 has been a fantastic year in celebrating our people, their dedication and passion. Manager, Hugh Almond and Principal Consultant Rayhaneh Tehrani were both nominated in the ‘Talent and Recruitment Professional of the Year’ Category at 2017’s Made in Manchester Awards, whilst Financial Controller Mike Hoyle was shortlisted under the ‘Accountant of the Year’ category. The Made in Manchester awards celebrate the best of Manchester’s young talent, recognising excellence in innovation entrepreneurial spirit, training & development and leadership. It is awards such as these that really demonstrate the hard work and specialist knowledge our people offer both clients and candidates to ensure their requirements are met.   

However we still have a lot to do to ensure we remain at the forefront of the recruitment industry and our specialist sectors. This includes developing our offices, investing further in the training and development of our people and listening to feedback, both internal and external to ensure we remain the very best.
