My experience with ZSA was excellent; other firms did not offer the same quality of candidates and Lana provided very fast service. She provided us with two candidates, and we successfully hired the first interviewed - we saved so much time with the interviewing/hiring process.

Success stories

ZSA have been the most helpful recruitment company I have ever dealt with. Very efficient service from the initial introduction phone call, to the final ‘congrats’ email, ZSA exceeded my expectations and I will certainly recommend ZSA to my contacts. Working with Warren, Lana and Sanoja brought great value to the process as they kept me updated throughout, which I found very reassuring. I have worked with other recruiters in the past, and I have found ZSA to be the best – they made the recruitment process enjoyable.

Louise Meegan

I had contacted Lana Driscoll regarding ZSA’s ad, and was pleased that communications were fast and professional. When I had questions about the process I knew who I could reach out to. Lana kept me involved and informed throughout the process – I was quickly made aware of where in the process my application was, so I was not left in the dark about what was going on. This was in contrast to my prior experiences applying directly to firms, where I would receive very little information, and was rarely informed about whether my application was still under consideration. I would definitely use the services of ZSA in the future, should I require them.

We engaged the services of ZSA and Lana Driscoll because we felt that Lana was very familiar with our firm.

Our experience working with her was excellent – Lana’s expertise and knowledge of our firm’s culture and fit was a great asset. We would definitely use ZSA’s services again.
