Sellick Partnership expands London in-house offering
The centrally based office will provide in-house legal recruitment solutions to FTSE 100, FTSE 250, media, FMCG, retail, services and IT/technology companies across the region.
The new office will be managed by Tracey Newman, a legal recruiter with significant experience in the sector, having worked previously with LAW Absolute. Newman completed her law degree and worked as a paralegal for a number of years, before deciding to move her career into the legal recruitment space - placing her in a strong position for launching the office, and enhancing the service that Sellick Partnership provides.
Newman commented on the expansion, “Having recruited in the London market for a number of years, the legal landscape has changed considerably leading to changing demands from our clients. We understand that in-house functions are under huge pressure to work more efficiently – with fewer resources and increase demands, and with this in mind we want to offer them genuine solutions that is based on a quality service.
“Our success to date has been based on the relationships that we have with our clients and our understanding of their business needs. The opening of a new office and the expansion of our specialist in-house team was a natural next step to ensure that we continue to provide a bespoke recruitment and consulting service to our commercial clients.”
The new office, based at Woburn Place, provides a full in-house legal recruitment service to a niche range of commercial businesses in the media, IT and technology sectors. The specialist team focus on placing lawyers and paralegals into companies across London and the Home Counties, on a contract and permanent basis.
Group director, Hannah Cottam has been significantly involved in the expansion. Cottam set up the legal recruitment specialist business over a decade ago, and has seen it grow significantly over the years to cover the whole of the UK and boast a turnover of £14.9 million in the year ended February 2015.
