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 experience of working with Sitka was really enjoyable. It was like talking to a friend who knew all the answers to my future career.
The recruitment process was a very smooth one with constant, non-intrusive updates. We benefited greatly from a personalised visit to our business, ensuring the right candidates were sourced for us. We received an excellent service.
I felt Ita really understood my skills and experience and the service I received was great. I felt that Ita was invested in my future career and did everything she could to help me land my new role.
I’d have no problem recommending Ita and the Sitka team to anyone entering the job market. They made the whole process much easier for me.
I have always dealt with Karen and have found the recruitment process generally excellent. The calibre of candidates has always been strong and the candidates also show enthusiasm towards the job and company they are interviewing for. I am very happy with the service we receive from Sitka and we have always appointed from the first round of interviews.
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.
Having now worked with Sitka for a number of years, they have a real understanding of the type of people we employ and that the ‘fit’ is as important as having the right skills for the role. Sitka provide an excellent service and make you feel you are their only customer. They are quite unique and such a pleasure to work with.
