Our clients share their Testimonials
Tanzela helped place me in my current role. Her professionalism and attention to detail were second to none. Tanzela kept me updated at every point. Her friendly and enthusiastic manner was refreshing and made the recruitment process seamless and enjoyable.
Zenith’s ability to source talent and find the right people for the right role in this industry makes their team one of the best I have ever dealt with. Their communication style sets them apart and they always do their homework before recommending a person for a role.
Liam has worked with me over the last 5 years and our relationship has blossomed due to the fact that we have a mutual understanding that our projects are based on a quick turn around, so speed and culture fit is critical to add to our full time crew. The team have always gone above and beyond for me and in a challenging market have always produced options for experienced blue collar trades.
Zenith Healthcare has provided Mintrex with recruitment services for 2 senior roles in our business recently. This process was run professionally, collaboratively, discreetly, and with the clear objective of finding the right candidate. Both successful candidates are now making a positive difference to our organisation. Zenith were flexible regarding our priorities and tailored their service to those priorities. I’d use them again.
I highly recommend Zenith after they successfully placed a candidate who met all our criteria in a role we always found a challenge to fill. Not only did Zenith keep up excellent communication throughout the process, they placed the role extremely fast. The Zenith team was easy to deal with, honest and genuinely interested in finding the right candidate for us that matched the skill set and cultural fit we were after.
I have had the experience on multiple occasions of working with the team at Zenith Search, they’ve proven to be highly capable of identifying and attracting technical talent for the businesses I have worked in. As a candidate I found Chris to be very well informed, professional and able to add value to the hiring process for all parties.
