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.
The whole recruitment process, led by Karen, was a really engaging and positive experience. I can honestly say it was the best interview I have ever had!
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.
The recruitment process was excellent. Karen provided me with updates on a regular basis and the level of communication at all points was handled very well. The whole recruitment process was handled extremely efficiently from start to finish.
Throughout the process, they kept us informed and the whole process felt like a true partnership. Each candidate came to the interview with a great understanding of our business and had prepared thoroughly, particularly at the second stage interviews.
My experience of working with Sitka was absolutely brilliant. I would describe Ita’s approach as professional and caring. I would definitely recommend Sitka to colleagues, friends and family.
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.
