“I engaged with Sital on a human performance programme that sought to transform our retail banking business. I worked very closely with him in his capacity of leading the recruitment team to acquire deep retailing and financial expertise from the open market.
Not only did we succeed in recruiting a number of talented senior managers – who are now transforming our business – we also found a number of directors in the process.
The success of the programme was directly attributable to Sital; his pace, energy and drive were unlike any I had encountered – and this was a talented team.
Very unusually for 1) a recruiter and 2) an external consultant, he built deep and lasting relationships with the leaders in the business – so much so that he was solicited directly by them to transition some of his skills to the wider team.
He subsequently delivered a programme of training to some of our managers and resourcing specialists on how to find and recruit the right people using his innovative and cost effective approach.
Indeed he was offered several permanent positions in fee generating roles – which is the best testament to his capability.
Above all with Sital – it is not his capability that sets him apart (which is very pronounced) it is his attitude, his personal drive and his charisma. I would work with him again above all other recruiters and consultants”
– Lizzie Runham, UK Talent Management Barclays Bank Plc
“Sital is a talented, business-minded professional with a tremendous work ethic and great sense of humour. He has been a GREAT resource, partner and consultant in both implementing a recruitment process in a difficult unaligned environment, as well as tactically staffing our UK Operations.
He was able to craft true business solutions to the recruitment and organizational design initiatives within our global business units. His ability to not only be an expert in recruitment and leadership, but to truly understand the business of financial services and general entrepreneurialism led to a very successful partnership.
It’s been my pleasure to work with him.”
