The nature of the position I was hired for was a 2 year contract as Executive Director, Legal & Procurement at the Canadian Tourism Commission. Luckily, ZSA had contacted me about the role. While working with Stephanie, I found her to be very helpful in driving the process forward, reminding me of expectations and deadlines of the employer. I have experience with another recruitment firms, but I found ZSA to be more knowledgeable and helpful. I canít think of any area of improvement regarding my experience and I would utilize the services of ZSA again in the future!

In addition to combing their own database, ZSA attracted legal professionals from the local area and beyond by developing and placing ads in relevant publications. We have used ZSA on several occasions and following these experiences I would recommend ZSA to anyone looking to attract quality legal talent.'
