Our clients share their Testimonials
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.
I have built a relationship with Chirs and Guy at Zenith over the past 12 years. Zenith has assisted with sourcing relevant, high calibre candidates and during major project ramp-ups have managed to secure large senior teams which has been instrumental to the business’s success. There isn’t another recruitment business I would trust in sourcing the people our company requires. Zenith always goes the extra mile and provides honest advice and feedback which is appreciated and refreshing.
Lendlease Services and Zenith Search have an ongoing and enduring relationship. Lendlease values the ability to reach out to the Zenith team and get immediate and professional response and support for us to secure skilled and competent people.
The team at Zenith are true to their values: it’s no wonder their reputation is going from strength to strength. Over the years, they have consistently been able o provide value adding, transparent and honest consulting services. I feel they genuinely care about helping their clients meet their resourcing needs; and are specialists in their field. They have risen to the rescue on a range of occasions and have deserved my trust.
Zenith Search is an executive recruitment firm with unsurpassed abilities to network in the mining and resources sectors and like industries to provide a refreshing professional and personal experience. My own involvement of working with Zenith Search has been as both an executive candidate moving into a new role and as a client across 2 organisations. All interactions have been professional, the content of the engagement has substance and demonstrates clear understanding of the organisations and of the people they represent. Having called on Zenith to identify key senior leaders within the mining sector for operational and functional roles, I have trusted and found their business ethic second to none with networks beyond traditional recruitment processes and a demonstrated reputation of delivering excellent outcomes within tight deadlines both within Australia and across the globe.
I first met the Zenith team over 2 years ago during placement for a project director role. From my first contact with the team, I received regular updates on the recruitment process. It was a reasonably lengthy negotiation process with the employer, but Zenith maintained a professional and supportive stance throughout. Upon engagement in the project director role, Zenith remained present, offering support though the relationships the team had built with the company. A very knowledgeable team, with an extensive network of contacts. Zenith has been a consistently professional consultant that I would recommend and rely upon for any future placements.
