Zitko Promotes Laura Raven to Managing Director


Zitko Group a leader in providing talent solutions to the fire and security industry, is pleased to announce the promotion of Laura Raven to the position of Managing Director, UK. This appointment marks a significant step in the company’s continued growth and commitment to excellence in the UK market.

Laura’s new role will see Zitko’s specialist technical division move under her leadership and allow for closer working partnerships across the company divisions in the UK. This in turn will allow for the wider business to continue working towards achieving its goal of becoming the leading global talent solutions provider for the fire and security industry.

Zitko’s UK customers can expect continued improvements to service levels and delivery, whilst candidates will continue to benefit from our commitment to provide the best recruitment experience in the industry.

Zitko Group CEO and Founder, George Zitko, said:

“I’m absolutely delighted to officially confirm Laura’s promotion to Managing Director, UK for Zitko Group.

Having joined our team six years ago, she’s progressed through the business from resourcing and consulting through to team and divisional leadership. Under her stewardship, the Zitko Group contract division has gone from being a start-up in the industry, to one of its largest and most respected suppliers. More recently, our permanent technical recruitment team has seen significant gains in both performance and process and is now delivering a variety of recruitment projects. These range from bringing 100+ new candidates into the industry through our Talent product, to high volume nationwide campaigns for the industry’s leading installers.

It’s been great fun working with Laura these last six years. I can’t wait to crack on with the next six!”

Laura Raven, the new Managing Director, UK for Zitko Group states:

“Anyone that asks me about what it’s like at Zitko Group will know that I describe it as the best place I have ever worked. I am lucky enough to have found not only an industry that I love, but also a business and a leader that inspires me.  When I arrived at Zitko 6.5 years ago, pregnant expecting my beautiful daughter, as resource support on a temp contract, little did I realise just how much this decision would impact my life, or the opportunities it has given me.

Being promoted to Managing Director UK is a tremendous honour; I’m delighted to take on this next challenge and continue to drive the company’s growth and success. My hope is to replicate the success we have had in the contract division across the UK permanent divisions.”
