Managing Consultant

Emily Coates

What’s your elevator pitch?

I'm an experienced technical recruiter, now managing the security recruitment division at Zitko.

What do you do every day?

I work with a range of national and regional companies who are looking for top talent to join their fire and security engineer teams.

My clients are broad and varied and the jobs I work can range from intruder alarm service or installation engineers to Ops and Commercial Directors of national companies. I'm always recruiting for a crazy number of jobs!

Who are you interested in talking to?

If you’re experienced in the fire and security industry, let’s talk.

What do you like to do for fun?

I’m at my happiest spending time with friends and family, and especially with my gorgeous son.
