Last month, Recruiter Insider announced their top five consultants for Candidate Experience for Q4 and Zitko were thrilled to learn that Ellie Kendal, who works in our contracting department, was named as one of those five.

Ellie joined Zitko just over two years ago and after only a year with the company, she was promoted to Senior Contract Fire & Security Recruitment Consultant. Although this is a great achievement, it is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Ellie’s list of successes and the value she brings to Zitko. Every day, Ellie comes to work ready to tackle each problem with her enviable knowledge and experience along with her boundless professionalism and willingness to help her colleagues. It is these characteristics that make her such an intrinsic and successful member of our team and leads her to achieve the results she has - whether it is consistently earning her place in Zitko’s top 3 monthly performers, being voted Employee of the Month twice, or the numerous reviews left by candidates thanking her for her support and collaboration, Ellie’s skills as a recruiter are undeniable.

What makes Ellie so deserving of her place in the top 5, beyond the numbers and the titles, is the energy and dedication that she puts into her work and her drive to succeed – characteristics which are admired and appreciated by everyone she works with. Serving her candidates the highest quality customer care and working tirelessly for their success are the main motivators behind Ellie’s work, making her a great ambassador for the company because she takes seriously the Zitko values of putting service first. Her ambition to always achieve more has resulted in her forming new and building on existing relationships with some of our biggest accounts and she is currently enrolled in the ongoing Female Future Leader programme, something which Zitko is fully supportive of as it will help her develop even more in our industry.

Even though she has firmly established herself as one of our most skilled recruiters, she has yet to take her foot off the pedal. Instead she continues to strive for endless improvement and a consistently high work performance, all the while making sure her efforts are guided by Zitko’s values of providing the best possible service. We have never been in any doubt that she is a growing talent in recruitment but this announcement from Recruiter Insider has confirmed that her impact is now being recognised by the wider industry for the force she is.

Below is just a small selection of Google reviews left by candidates who Ellie worked with, so you don’t just have to take our word for the impact she has.
