Here’s the final word on working at Zitko from some of our people.

Senior Recruitment Consultant covering roles in integrators, installers and manufacturers across the UK and Europe.

Emily Coates

Senior Recruitment Consultant

The Seasoned Pro – Emily Coates

“With 7 years’ experience in IT gained before joining Zitko Consulting I knew what I was looking for in a new employer. I’d always been a successful target hitter, and loved working in recruitment but grew frustrated with the stringent corporate nature and frequent 50-hour weeks. I had also experienced micro-management or unrealistic and overbearing KPI targets that weren’t specifically conducive.”

“At Zitko I’m given the flexibility and autonomy to focus on the quality of my work and the relationships that I build. Our Monday morning sales meetings are collaborative and engaging and a brilliant way to kick off the week and I’m hitting all my own personal and professional goals with room to spare. The security industry is as interesting as it is unique, and there are huge benefits to working for a leading specialist.”

Managing Consultant

The Career Change – Phil West

“I’d been teaching for several years before considering a new role and had looked at recruitment as a viable option. The earning potential was attractive and I wanted to feel valued in my day to day work. I’d been used to working 60 – 70 hour weeks as the minimum expected requirement but with a young family the lifestyle had become unsustainable. I was always happy to work hard, but was starting to feel unrewarded.”

“Joining Zitko in its infancy was a big leap of faith, but one that’s rewarded me many times over. I thoroughly enjoy the commercial aspect of recruitment and work with some amazing clients and some brilliant people. I always aim to deliver a great service and feel genuinely valued by my key accounts. Having succeeded in my personal goals of buying a new house and car, I’m now looking to achieving my professional goal of building a successful team as part of my own and Zitko’s continued growth.”

Resourcer

The Newcomer – Leigha Marvell

“After an extended period of travelling around Europe I was unsure about where my next role would be. I’d gained a few years’ experience in customer service and always enjoyed dealing with people. I originally wanted to be a paramedic but was a little concerned about the work-life balance and commitment if it didn’t work out.”

“I originally interviewed for a sales administration role within Zitko, but was offered the chance to support the consultancy team as a candidate Resourcer. Although initially nervous I jumped at the chance, and now speak to anywhere between 10 and 30 candidates a day, learning their stories, backgrounds and assessing their suitability for our various roles. I work with a great team in a supportive, relaxed environment and already feel like a key part of the business and its success.“
