SSQ, the market leading legal search and recruitment consultancy, is pleased to announce it heads The Recruiter “Hot 100” list after placing second in 2015 and 2014. The list ranks UK headquartered recruitment consultancies based on their gross profit per employee (GPPE).
This is the third time SSQ has topped the list within five years, once again demonstrating its unrivalled and consistent success. No other consultancy has ever been ranked number one three times in the ten year existence of the list.
This achievement comes at the end of yet another year of significant expansion and growth for SSQ. The business opened its 13th office this year in Dubai and has significantly grown its teams around the world. It also unveiled a new logo earlier this month.
The business has continued to lead the way at the very top of the recruitment market and has this year been responsible for four office launches for major international law firms, in addition to placing hundreds of partners, associates, in-house and interim lawyers and paralegals around the world.
Chief Executive Nick Shilton said:
“Being number one on the Hot 100 for the third time is an incredible achievement to conclude a very good 2016 for SSQ. We are delighted to have achieved such success within recent years. The number one ranking this year is a real reflection of success of our business model. It is also a great testament to our staff and is a direct result of their drive and dedication.”
