    Zitko Consulting, Zitko Sales, and Zitko Contracting are the three businesses that make up ZITKO, the award-winning Fire and Security recruitment specialist. We support our clients with a range of services across our three specialist divisions of Sales, Technical and Contract. Those are; - Retained search - RPO and recruitment outsourcing - Talent attraction - Recruitment strategy The biggest challenges facing employers right now are sourcing, attracting and retaining the right talent. Business success lives and dies with its people, so how are we finding great people and then keeping them? Since 2010 ZITKO have been working with installers on these very issues and remain one of the most innovative and customer centric recruiters in the industry. George Zitko has worked in recruitment for 20 years starting in secretarial recruitment in the City before first moving into the security industry with market leading firm Oasis. After a successful 6 years George joined BT to head up the external arm of their in-house IT recruitment business Red and Blue. The structured environment within BT coupled with the demanding nature of IT recruitment inspired George to marry a high-quality recruitment service with the electronic security industry. In 2008 Zitko Consulting was born. The ambition for the business is simple. To work closely with security businesses providing a genuine and honest service that delivers real value, fairness and quality to both candidates and clients alike. “I enjoy working with business owners and senior teams to improve the recruitment experience and deliver genuine results across candidate engagement and retention. I love talking about security, and I love recruitment.“
