George Zitko – Founder and Managing Director
Founder & Managing Director

George Zitko

What’s your elevator pitch?

I’ve made my career from matching great people to great jobs. It’s awesome to play an active part in someone’s career development. And I mean that about my own team as well as the candidates we place. I love being an employer. I love seeing my team succeed in the environment I’ve created. I work hard to align my team’s personal goals to the goals of my business


What do you do every day?

Well, my name’s a bit of a giveaway but as the proud founder and MD of Zitko I wear multiple hats. I’m a salesperson, a spokesperson, a team manager and a recruiter. All of these roles need strong relationship management skills. Most days I’m in meetings with my team or clients. Our industry is evolving fast and listening to our customers is the best way to constantly develop and improve our services.


What do you like to do for fun?

I’m big on family and love nothing more than spending time with my wife and two children. Oh, and I play a mean game of squash.
