SSQ, the market leading legal search and recruitment consultancy, is pleased to announce it has been ranked second in The Recruiter magazine’s “Hot 100”. The list ranks UK headquartered recruitment consultancies based on their gross profit per employee (GPPE).

SSQ has featured on this list since 2009, ranking in the top two for six of the last nine years, including being placed first three times. No other recruitment consultancy has achieved the same consistent success in the list’s eleven year existence. SSQ has also placed first on the rankings for professional services recruitment. It has maintained this leading position for six years.

This achievement comes after another year of expansion for SSQ. Headcount rose another 10%, bringing the business to a total increase of almost 70% over the last five years. To be able to achieve continued dominance at the top of the Hot 100 list with a backdrop of such expansion is unprecedented.

Chief Executive Nick Shilton said:

“Being able to maintain such a strong position on the Hot 100, not just for the last two or three years but for the last nine is a great accolade for SSQ. Our business model has allowed us to expand and remain a leader in our market whilst offering our staff a successful platform on which to build their careers. 2017 has been another very strong year for the business and we look forward to 2018 with considerable optimism.”
