Eighteen months on from becoming a finalist for the Wales Start-up awards, we’re delighted to have moved into new offices in the Maltings, launched a brand new user-focused website and appointed a third recruitment partner to help manage the growing demand for our services.
With over 14 years’ experience in the recruitment industry, Jenny Griffiths (pictured above) will be responsible for helping businesses across south Wales recruit qualified accountancy, marketing and HR professionals.
“I am thrilled to have joined the Sitka team,” says Jenny. “I have followed their journey and growth over the last two and a half years and feel very proud to be part of such a well thought of and successful business.”
Sitka’s refreshing approach combines traditional recruitment and ‘search and selection’ techniques to enable them to offer, as one of our clients puts it, ‘the bespoke, personalised service which can be missing in the wider recruitment market’.
Now in our third year of business, we’re on track to increase our turnover by 50% this year. This success is largely down to increased concern around the availability of skilled candidates.
More employers are choosing to partner with us because they realise that recruiting candidates with the right skills requires a more thorough search process than they can dedicate time to. That’s why we’re delighted to have Jenny on board and be working out of excellent and well-positioned offices in the Maltings to provide the value-added services these employers need.
Thanks to recommendations from happy clients, we’ve acquired an impressive portfolio of clients including Creditsafe, Acuity Legal and Cardiff and Vale College. Having Jenny on board will enable us to support more organisations.
Karen Birch, who co-founded Sitka with me says: “Our priority is to get every appointment right first time, and this role was no exception. Jenny’s values, expertise and professional approach are ideally suited to Sitka’s ethos and have enabled her to fit seamlessly into the team. We’re delighted to be working with her.”

Sitka take time to seek out opportunities that will actually be a good fit for you. For the first time I felt a recruiter was actually working for me not just for themselves/the employer.
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.
I was recommended Sitka by a mutual contact who thought Karen and Ita would understand our requirements and our organisation. I met with them and I definitely felt they were the right agency for us. The recruitment process was seamless, they made it very easy for me.
Trying to find a new role can be quite a daunting experiencing, however what I found working with Karen is that her enthusiasm is infectious. Karen listened to what I had to say and we had a long and productive conversation about what I wanted and whether the role was right for me.
Sitka’s values sync with my own and Sitka certainly live and breathe theirs. I’m never disappointed or worried when I’m interacting with Sitka. I know that they are good at what they do, act fairly and do the right thing. It’s reassuring to know.
The process was simple, efficient and effective. Ita had the sector experience and knowledge to understand exactly what I needed and ensure no time was wasted.
