Some nice things customers have said...

Luke and I recently worked together at Sequence when he helped to place two key roles for us. Luke was a delight to work with from day one.
He was clearly very knowledgeable about the design landscape and was able to immediately give advice on guidance on the profile we were looking for.
He was conscientious in his approach and ensured his pipeline always represented a diverse set of  candidates.

I couldn't recommend Zest enough and look forward to working with them again soon.

Head of Talent at Sequence

I would strongly recommend Allen and the team at Zest based on a recent Product Director hire they delivered for us at General System. Blending deep tech knowledge/experience with strategic product management (in a completely new market segment) was the priority, which made the search particularly challenging and nuanced. Allen delivered! We're delighted with our new hire who is already making a big impact, and it wasn't by chance that we found him.

Thanks Allen for delivery on a challenging but critical brief!

I have worked with Miles as a candidate and repeatedly as a hiring manager.

He is a fantastic recruiter. He has a strong network across European Tech and spends a lot of time listening to his candidates and hiring managers, which shows.

Miles knows when a candidate is right for you and - more importantly - when they are not, beyond what it looks like on paper.


With Miles, you get short calibration periods and less time wasted on interviews that lead nowhere.
