FINANCIALS: Sellick Partnership reveals rise in half-year revenue and profit

Professional services recruitment specialist Sellick Partnership has seen an increase in turnover and gross profit for the year ended February 2018.

Audited results, recently uploaded to Companies House, reveal turnover rose £41.9m from £38.7m, with GP up to £6.5m from £5.7m in the previous year.

Managing director Jo Sellick pointed to a “record” year for the group, despite challenges that businesses continue to face: “This is positive for us as a business, and for the recruitment market in general as I believe it is a true reflection that confidence is returning to the UK jobs market.

“I am also delighted to announce that our half-year results for this year are looking just as strong. We are currently sitting more than £200k ahead of budgeted GP, which is £600k better than the same point last year. We have made 229 permanent placements in the first six months of the year alone and currently have 798 contractors out, putting us on track for another record-breaking year. 

“I am confident that this success will continue, and our ambitious plans for organic growth will come to fruition,” he added.
