Board of Directors

Jo Sellick Board of Directors

Jo Sellick - Managing Director

Jo started his career in recruitment in the early 1990s, prior to setting up Sellick Partnership in 2002. Jo began his career working in sales in Sheffield after graduating from university - but got his first break in recruitment a year later, with Badenoch & Clark. After rapid progression, he moved across to Hitchenor & Maher Financial, before setting up on his own.

Although Managing Director of Sellick Partnership, Jo’s role remains very hands-on, still maintaining a billing capacity within the business, as well as being responsible for the establishment, strategic development and growth of the firm. Since 2002, the business has grown organically from one office specialising in finance and accountancy recruitment in Manchester, to seven offices with a nationwide presence in the finance and legal sectors.

Over the years Jo has developed strong relations with St Ann’s Hospice, a charity that aims to improve the quality of life for people living with life-threatening illnesses in Greater Manchester. In addition, he has set up the Manchester Professional's Cricket League which brings together businesses across the region to play regular competitive sport at community clubs.
