We’ve been fortunate to partner with some great brands and love hearing about the impact our candidates have in their new venture.
Below are some examples of customer feedback.
Product Leader x2
Design Leader x2
"Over the 6 months working with Zest, I have been hugely impressed with their market knowledge and ability to provide candidates that have the required skills, but also align with our Paysend principles.
The team at Zest have shown they have a wide spectrum of product & design leadership candidates they can draw from.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Zest and will certainly be using them in the future!"
"Allen is a thoughtful recruiter who takes pride in understanding in depth your company, your goals and what you are looking for in order to both find the right fit for your role and to advocate effectively for the opportunity to join your organisation.
Strongly recommend Allen and the team at Zest if you are looking for great talent in product or design!"
"Once we started working with Luke on our Product Design Leader position, our candidate pipeline improved significantly. The profiles he has sourced and introduced to us were always on point and matched with the criteria we had for this specific role. Each time he sent us a candidate, I understood why he thought they could be a match.
Thanks to Zest, we were able to successfully fill this position with the best talent for the team and company!"

"I've had the pleasure of working with Miles in December 2021, and have known him for the past year.
He's the anti-thesis of the recruiter stereotype - he listens to your needs, he's not pushy, and is a straight shooter on your chances to get a role that he's helping you with.He kept me well informed through the hiring process.
Plus it helps that he's a fun guy who's interesting and interested in you too."
"I would strongly recommend Allen and the team at Zest based on a recent hire they delivered for us at General System. It was for a senior role - Product Director - but with a specific niche focus based on the novel and groundbreaking technology that we are building. 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!"

"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."
"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."
"Luke's been instrumental in helping me build and recruit Emitwise's design team from the ground up, and has consistently gone above and beyond. As well as sending me excellent, hand-picked candidates, Luke has given me great advice around recruitment practices and processes for product design.
He is receptive to feedback, able to adjust quickly to changing circumstances, and is an efficient talent partner, qualities that are vital if you're working with fast-growing startups."
"I had the pleasure of dealing with Miles during a recruitment process and I had such a great experience working with him.
Miles is a rare kind of recruiter and the kind that you want to work alongside. He is a true professional that is neither biased towards the candidate or the client. In every interaction with him, it is evident that he wants the best outcome for both yourself and his client.
In dealing with him, there was no misconception of the job he had to do i.e. ensure that he enabled his client to find the right candidate but he was also focused on ensuring that I had the right candidate experience throughout the entire process."

"Luke helped me place a Snr Design Director position at Typeform. It’s really hard to find someone who deeply understands the design industry and he was definitely the best partner I could have. He did a really good job understanding the challenge, introducing great candidates and also very proactive sharing market insides that helped us make the right decisions.
I’ve already recommended Luke to several companies because I feel very comfortable with his capacity and I'd recommend him to anyone that is looking for an outstanding partner"
