Northland Expands Zitko Relationship to US in Anticipation of Growth

Oct 20, 2020

International security system integrator Northland Controls has appointed Zitko to deliver their recruitment managed service (RPO) for its North American operations, including its global HQ in Milpitas CA.

This will cover all the main recruitment functions, including employer and job marketing, talent mapping and pooling, enquiries and application management, initial screening and detailed shortlisting.

Zitko will be sourcing highly skilled engineers, project control specialists and technicians across the USA; people who can live up to Northland Control’s widely acclaimed technical and service standards.

Tallie Guy will be the key account manager running the North American managed service. Tallie joins us from leading global RPO provider, BPS World, where she delivered the company’s RPO services for prominent international tech clients, including Stanley Security.

Initially Tallie will be UK-based to best leverage Zitko’s sector-leading expertise, network and infrastructure in Fire & Security resourcing. Her brief is to build on Northlands’ profile as an employer and with it a robust talent pipeline.

She will be working alongside EMEA Account Manager Nadine Jones, whose efforts and results on behalf of Northland Controls have been a key factor in securing the North American contract.

Pierre Trapanese – CEO Northland Controls

“Since 2014, George and his team have worked tirelessly with us to meet demand in the EMEA region. Finding top talent continues to be one of our most important strategies, and it was a very logical and simple decision to extend our partnership with them to the USA. We’re expanding in the US and EMEA and are excited about Zitko managing recruitment so that we can meet our clients’ and market demands.”

George Zitko – MD Zitko

“I’m very excited to be launching our North American operation with Northland Controls and renewing our working relationship with COO Ed Wears. Our two companies share many of the same values and it’s a genuine pleasure to be a part of the Northlands story”.
