Zelda's approach is different to many other agencies. Even after they place you in a role - you're not forgotten.
"In recruitment, a good reputation, professional ethics and a commitment to relationship-building are paramount. It's important to understand the needs of your candidate or client well so that you can identify the right role in the right organisation for the right person. I have worked with my consultant at Zelda, Donna Hanson, as both a candidate and a client over many years because she works by these principles. They follow up with both the client and the candidate at regular intervals to ensure all parties are satisfied. They know the importance of getting the right fit."
Lisa Kelly, Santos
Donna Hanson and the team at Zelda instill confidence through great business partnering skills. They actively listen to gain a complete understanding of the brief, they provide a comprehensive search and review service and demonstrate integrity and professionalism with their submissions. They effectively tune-in to the unwritten requirements of any role and always provide the highest quality candidates. Their positive contribution to our organisational development ensures we will retain our business relationship with them through the continued provision of superior quality support staff for our business year upon year."

Throughout the process, you have been so helpful, liaising very professionally and efficiently. Thank again for all you have done, you have made my transition to Brisbane very easy.

"In view of 'sharing the love and appreciation', here's what I wrote about Zelda [For the SEEK Annual Recruitment Awards]....
- They listened to what I was looking for in a job.
- They had belief in me and my abilities.
- They offered me only positions that suited that criteria.
- They've kept in contact since I was placed.
- They genuinely care about me professionally and personally.
- They consistently exceed my expectations for excellence.
- They are always professional, welcoming and make themselves available.
- Zelda (the Director) put her name behind the business because she had confidence in her ability to build a team who would provide exemplary service.
This is why they are my favourite recruitment company and why I will continue to use their services. And I will continue to refer my friends and family to Zelda Recruitment."
"I found you (Elizabeth Howearth) and Zelda to be an excellent firm to work with so I will reccomend and refer candidates to you when I can"
"I would like to say a big thank you to you (Anna Ching) and your colleagues for the temp roles you gave me. I really appreciated the work and hope that I adequately represented Zelda for you. It was really nice to deal with an agency who actually gave me temp assignments when they didn’t have permanent roles suitable for me. You are rare! I will definitely return if the need arises in the future and will happily recommend you. Thanks again Anna"
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank Caroline Kirwan for the fantastic service I received, when I was searching for a new job. Caroline's strong knowledge and experience of the industry along with her respect towards me, gave me great confidence that my best interests were represented. I have referred a number of my friends to Caroline and I have received the same feedback from them as I have given. If I am ever searching for a new job again, Caroline would be the first person that I would call and I highly recommend her to everyone who was seeking a job or an employee. Thanks again Caroline."
Sara Bidgood, QR Network
"Out of all the agencies I signed up with whilst I was out of work, Zelda proved to be the best. Unlike a lot of other agencies they always got back to me and let me know how the process was traveling. I've dealt with Dawn, Donna, Emma and Anna and found all of them very friendly and professional. Thanks for all your help Zelda!"
Sally Burnett, Santos
"When I moved to Brisbane I visited a number of recruitment agencies to help me secure employment. I found the support and service I received from the team at Zelda Recruitment far surpassed any other recruitment firm. I sought Caroline's help when I was seeking a new position and wanted to be certain that I found the 'right' role that I could commit to for the long-term. Caroline listened and made sure she understood exactly what I required and wanted in my next career move and then continued to use her personal and professional contacts to get me an interview for a number of positions. With Caroline's help I landed my dream job as a Researcher within the Mining, Oil and Gas industry with Downing Teal. When you read all the usual terms - professional, integrity, enthusiasm, committed, motivated - they all apply but in Caroline's case somewhat more than for most people. My experience with Caroline and Zelda Recruitment could not have been better."
Jasmine Carter, Downing Teal
"Donna, Anna and the team took the time and care to match my experience and skills to the right job and now I am in the best job of my career, the challenge of the front end of a new and exciting project with the view to adding more skills to my experience. I can't thank the Zelda team enough. I am humbled, excited still after 3 months, and so grateful, all rolled into one."
"Hi Alison,...I was chatting to a colleage this week about agencies and I made a comment that the pay run via Zelda is excellent ... the pay run seems to run seamlessy - almost on the dot ... I receive a payslip and the money goes into my account that night. ... Lan also responds to any email queries I have in a very timely manner - I've been really impressed, I hope she is appreciated [for being so] professional."
"Hi Yu-Wen, I would just like to say thank you for your help in securing me ...[my new role]. Having spent a considerable amount of time on the recruitment trail in the APAC region (Japan inclusive) it has been a refreshing and rewarding experience to work with you in the capacity of recruiter and candidate. Throughout this recruitment process, from start to end, I have found you to be a personal, dedicated and passionate professional. A person who has brought complete transpearency, vigour and enthusiasm into the process, turning an otherwise run of the mill exercise, into one that has been enjoyable and of a high standard. You are a credit to Zelda Recruitment and to yourself."
"When I met the Zelda staff it was clear that the whole team wanted to help me secure employment and they all worked together to achieve this. Dawn assisted me to find the right position and supported me in negotiating the salary that I desired. The follow up contact and support I have received since my employment has been amazing.
I know that if I have any problems or queries regarding either my current or future employment that Dawn or any of the Zelda team are only ever a phone call away. Finding the right job can be a daunting task and there are a lot of recruitment agencies that can make you feel like you are just another number. Zelda Recruitment Agency is truly in a league of their own."
Rebecca Dickson, Premier Pacific
"Zelda Recruitment has caringly, professionally and without bias provided me with the best opportunities that suit my talents and availability over the past three years. Zelda has intuitively and professionally provided sound information regarding the job market and its opportunities that I have found reassuring and supportive when making decisions.
Dawn has consistently represented Zelda in the best possible light by always providing the best attention and care for the jobs I have received. Dawn is a brilliant example of knowing her market, her clients and those she places into that market.
I am encouraged even in tougher economic times that Zelda Recruitment is at the forefront of the market, holding the hand of those it represents.
Thank you Zelda."
"My time with Zelda has been positive as I was placed very quickly into a great position within a reputable resource company that complimented my previous experience. The staff I have dealt with from Zelda have been very friendly and helpful, particularly Jasmine who is my direct consultant. My temporary role has been an enjoyable experience and I look forward to finding a permanent position through Zelda when the time comes."
