Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business

Recruitment Firm Expands to Meet Demand of Welsh Market


Eighteen months on from becoming a finalist for the Wales Start-up awards, Sitka Recruitment has expanded into new offices in the Maltings, launched a brand new user-focused website and appointed a third recruitment partner to help them manage the growing demand for their services.

With over 14 years’ experience in the recruitment industry, Jenny Griffiths 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 their clients puts it, ‘the bespoke, personalised service which can be missing in the wider recruitment market’.

Now in their third year of business, the firm are on track to increase their turnover by 50% this year. Ita Mc-Neil Jones, who co-founded the company with Karen Birch in 2016, says 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.”

says Ita.

“That’s why we’re delighted to have Jenny on board to help us provide the value-added services these employers need.”

Thanks to recommendations from happy clients, Sitka have acquired an impressive portfolio of clients including Creditsafe, Acuity Legal and Cardiff and Vale College. They firmly believe their latest appointment will enable them to support more organisations.

 “Our priority is to get every appointment right first time, and this role was no exception,”

says Karen Birch.

“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.”
