Four years ago, we decided – in our 40s – to establish a business in the extremely competitive world of recruitment.
We are open and say it hasn’t been without its challenges – few business journeys are – but we’ve enjoyed pretty much every moment.
On our fourth birthday, we would like to share some key reflections in the hope it may help other start-up businesses in their decision-making process.
In honesty, there are other lessons we have learned since we started and despite all the current uncertainty, we are looking forward to growing Sitka’s offering more over the next 4 years and beyond.
Sitka was the only recruitment agency I encountered during my job hunt that I didn’t find completely overbearing. Their integrity was clear throughout the process and not once did I feel pressured by their agents.
I thoroughly enjoyed communicating with Karen and having her represent me. Karen was very hands on and made me feel very informed. Therefore I was able to relaxed and feel at ease during my interviews.
I felt very confident that Sitka would find the right person for our business. They took on board how important our company values were to us. A good range of candidates were provided and they all met the brief. The final choice came down to chemistry.
They were very easy to work with, chased us on all our deadlines, and found a great person who now has a permanent full-time position with us.
Sitka offered a more thorough, personal and detailed search for candidates than we have experienced with any other recruitment agencies we have used previously.
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.
