The nature of the position for which we were hiring was for a Partner. We engaged ZSA as a result of our longstanding relationship, and our experience working with Graham MacLennan was top notch! Graham was professional and went above and beyond our expectations. This was a long search from start to finish and Graham's enthusiasm did not waver. We secured a candidate we are very happy with and I would not hesitate to recommend Graham's services to others. I look forward to working with him again. What we found particularly helpful was that Graham was consistently available and willing to do whatever was required. We would definitely use the services of ZSA again!
I have been working with Elizabeth Borrill at ZSA on a number of occasions and would like to take a moment to thank Elizabeth for the incredible service she has provided. Elizabeth always puts clients first to get the job done right. You can always rely on her to send you exceptional applicants. I would highly recommend any business seeking employees to use the services provided by Elizabeth at ZSA.
We greatly appreciate the collaboration with ZSA, more particularly with Dominique Tardif. She helped us to recruit several professionals to complete our legal team. She had a clear understanding of our challenges and proposed candidates whose experience corresponded to our requirements. Thanks to her accessibility and know-how, she was able to fulfill our needs with effectiveness and diligence.
The nature of the position we were hiring for was Accounts Manager (Collections) and LAA. I really enjoyed working with JoAnne Peppiatt, as she consistently provided very good service and quality applicants. In addition, JoAnne is very professional, and I never felt like she was trying to sell me an applicant. JoAnne is great with following up and staying connected. I've always had great success with ZSA and would use their services again.
