What was your journey to Sellick Partnership?

Before joining Sellick Partnership I was searching for a role within the events industry. I was working in a Business Development role that provided me with the opportunity to facilitate a large international property conference in Cannes, France. That one event opened up a door, and I knew I wanted to do something to push my development. I had a call with Simon (Briffa), followed by two interviews, and by the end of the process, I had found my new role! Five years down the line, and I’m still here - in a new role, with more skills and development opportunities, which all stem from the support provided by the management team here.

What was it about Sellick Partnership that convinced you to take a role here?

I remember my first interview with Simon and Anna (Williamson), one of the first questions they asked was ‘How much do you know about Sellick Partnership and what we do?’ It was from my research, and attending the interviews that I got the full picture of what it was like to work for a business that truly puts its people first. I read about all of the awards and accreditations and heard firsthand from both Simon and Anna about what they do for their employees, which is what put Sellick Partnership at the forefront of the other interview processes that I was involved in.

What’s your biggest achievement to date in your role?

When I first joined the business, I solely worked on events. This ranged anywhere from 50 to 65 events a year and consisted of conferences, awards ceremonies, and sporting tournaments. A huge part of my day-to-day role now is budget management, whether that be for an event or a campaign. The biggest campaign that I run is our Christmas campaign – which mainly focuses on our legal temps but also expands much further across the business. I have run this campaign for a few years now, with each year getting stronger. 2023 has been my strongest year by far, and to know that I have had the support and recognition from my team and wider stakeholders gives me a real sense of achievement.

What are the best things about your role?

No two days are ever the same. I often get asked ‘What does your role entail?’, and always find myself saying ‘What doesn't it entail?!’, and it’s true! Our roles vary quite considerably and cover all things stakeholder management, events management, budget management, website maintenance, brand management, advertising, project and campaign management as well as offering sales support to our fantastic teams. This means I am always challenged to develop myself further each day I walk into the office. I’ve always thrived off helping and supporting people, and this job does exactly that!

What are the most challenging aspects? 

I can often find myself juggling several tasks that are all ‘high priority’. It’s really important to be organised in my role and to know what is a priority and what can wait. I recently went on an internal training course called ‘7 Habits for Highly Effective People’ which is based on a well-respected and motivational set of principles to help you be more effective in the workplace but also in your everyday life. This definitely helps when I reflect on challenging times.

Outside of your job, what else do you enjoy about Sellick Partnership?

The people and the culture! We often say that we’re a ‘Sellick family’, and that truly reflects through the people that are hired here. The three annual company-wide events are always something to look forward to and get everybody together in a social environment.
