Ella joined the Legal Private Practice team at Sellick Partnership in November 2021. In july 2023, an opportunity became available to work on the Internal Talent Team, this was something that interested Ella and she decided to make the move. We spoke to her recently about her experience at Sellick Partnership.
After being made redundant from my job during the pandemic I took a step back and tried to think about my skills/the things I enjoyed and how I could apply these to a career. I consider myself a people person, and so recruitment naturally seemed like the next step for someone who enjoys meeting new people and building relationships.
Two years into my journey at Sellick Partnership, I was presented with the opportunity to move over to the Internal Talent Team, hiring accross all of the offices. This was of interest to me, as I felt my time here gave me a unique perspective to hire new Consultants. If I was going to move into an internal role, I wanted it to be for a company that I truly believed in - and Sellick Partnership is that company!
After doing some research on the company and coming into the office for my interview I could tell it was a company that really cared about employee wellbeing. I felt that they wanted their employees to succeed, not just for the company’s benefit, but for the individual’s benefit. Lots of companies sell you the dream, but I felt Sellick Partnership really meant it - and they’ve definitely proven that in the time I’ve been here.
The people! As my role has evolved, I have been given the chance to travel and spend time with everyone in the different offices. I got along with everyone in the Leeds office and it's so lovely that this is the case across the board.
I think starting out can be hard, it takes time to find your feet in any new role. For me, in locum legal recruitment it is so important to build a good network of candidates and clients. The most important thing is to keep up a positive attitude and not let set-backs affect you.
As Internal Talent Co-ordinator, some of these sentiments still stand - however instead of dealing with clients, I am now speaking to the Senior Leadership Team at Sellick Partnership to best understand their recruitment needs. This comes with unique pressures, as I don't want to let people within the business down, the relationships I have with those I'm helping definitely feel more personal.
I think everyone in the company looks forward to the companywide events. I also really enjoy our team nights out and making plans with my colleagues – a few of us have even been on holiday together. I also love that Sellick Partnership gives everyone the opportunity to attend external events like awards.
At Sellick Partnership, our values are Passionate, Respected and Engaging. These values differentiate us from our competitors; they define our business priorities, both internally and externally, and lie at the core of everything we do.
