  • 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.
