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.”

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’.
Sometimes in recruitment it is a case of being able to look behind the written CV and Karen was able to pull out experience that I had overlooked so that we were able to recruit the right person for us.
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.
I had an excellent experience working with Sitka. They provided a far more personal approach than most recruitment companies, and they were very proactive in helping me find my new job.
Sitka are ideally positioned to offer the bespoke, personalised service which can be missing within the wider recruitment market.
Sitka took the time to ‘deep dive’ all of the information pertinent to the role and the person specification, visiting the offices to gain real insight into the culture and working environment. The only tough part was deciding which of the 3 capable candidates to hire.
