As many of us get back into the swing of work, some are looking for a new role and some are looking to review their current teams. With this in mind our directors Karen and Ita share some recruitment pointers for both jobseekers and employers and talk a little about the Sitka journey so far.
Sitka took the time to understand me, my experience and my aspirations. Sitka had clearly done the same with their client and was able to put together a good match.
Ita took the time to ask about our business, our culture, the role and really understood what we were looking for. This resulted in a really straightforward recruitment process. All of the candidates put forward were of exceptional quality and I would definitely recommend Sitka to my colleagues and network.
As a stand-alone HR manager, my input was minimal. I felt confident Ita understood the brief and our business and this allowed me to trust her, trust the process and believe we would get a good selection of candidates. Sitka is a really safe pair of hands and good communication – I was never left wondering. This is really important.
A lot of work goes into what Sitka do. They are well gelled together as a team, very thorough and I could trust that we were getting quality candidates – with quality over quantity assured.
The experience of working with Sitka was really enjoyable. It was like talking to a friend who knew all the answers to my future career.
This was the most professional recruitment processes I have experienced as a candidate. I felt really well prepared for the hiring process. Ita took the time to understand my experience and align my skills and values with those of role that I was applying for. This meant that I felt really prepared for the interview process and confident that I understood the role, culture and values of the organisation.
I would recommend Sitka and I would also consider using them as a client in the future. Having experienced their service as a candidate I have seen the effort that is made to ensure there is a good fit between candidate and client. Thank you Ita!
My experience of working with Sitka was very professional from start to finish. In particular, I was impressed by the personal touch, being contacted before and after the interview process even if just to say ‘good luck’.
