Each individual consultant’s years of experience
Aim. To be your trusted partner
It has been my pleasure to have met and to be recruited by Senior Consultant Donna Hanson at Zelda Recruitment. Donna has great work ethics and her vast knowledge and exceptional service has enabled me to build a trusting relationship with her. I have full confidence that Donna is dedicated to provide the highest degree of service to all her clients and candidates. I have no hesitation in giving my recommendation for Donna and I look forward to a continued working relationship with her.
A big thanks to Zelda Recruitment for providing an opportunity to me (a student) about to graduate. As an upcoming graduate with next to no work experience, it was difficult to land a position, especially in the field I was interested in. Donald McAllister in particular, recommended a potential opportunity and I gave it a shot. In the span of 3 days I was able to land the interview as well as being hired on the spot. It was a fantastic experience and still feels surreal as it happened so fast. With the support of Donald preparing me for the interview and providing a list of recommendations I felt confident in the interview process.
My history with Zelda Recruitment has spanned more than 16 years now - since August 2001! It was at this time I met Donna Hanson and with three rewarding and inspiring career roles since, have immense respect for her proven professionalism. Her ability to ensure the “right fit” for a candidate and employer has always been the ultimate goal and the ingredients that ensure Zelda’s success. Zelda’s recruitment process of candidates has always been tough, rigorous and above all completely thorough by using a combination of skills testing, in depth discussions, diligent work in reference checks and ensuring career goals and capabilities are matched well with employers. It is through this process, when now in a position to recruit for our own administration staff in Brisbane city and regionally, to think firstly of Zelda above other recruiters. This speaks volumes about quality placement of candidates in temporary and permanent positions, and keeping focussed on minimising down time and costs in business.
Donna has provided us continuously with quality candidates – sometimes with a day’s notice but always selecting personnel who not only have the required skills but also have the personality and strength of character to do a great job – right - the first time. In a fast paced and rapidly growing work environment we need to ensure our business needs are well taken care of quickly, cost effectively, professionally and in a stream lined manner - and Zelda does deliver every time.
I have had a long working association with the team at Zelda Recruitment, both as a candidate and as an employer, that spans almost 20 years. Unlike some recruitment agencies who will send you heaps of resumes but half the candidates are unsuitable for the role, Zelda Recruitment takes the time to understand what both parties are looking for. They strive to match candidates, skills and experience with the requirements of the role being offered by the employer. As a result, they have been a great support to me in various roles that I have had. I’m grateful for their support, and am happy to recommend their services to others.
I have used Zelda Recruitment for finance and administration positions and have always received prompt service and quality candidates.
I find Donna extremely professional and she has everyone's best interest at heart. Donna has an extensive knowledge of her clients and their work culture making it really easy to find the right candidate for the role. Donna placed me in a great job and now I deal with Donna on a regular basis to find various temp and long term administration roles within the company. On numerous occasions, I have contacted Donna for urgent placements afterhours and she is always so accommodating and always finds a solution at short notice. I can't recommend Donna highly enough, she has a confidential and informative approach teamed with a down to earth and highly likeable personality.
Having used Zelda Recruitment in my role as HR Manager over the years for both permanent and temporary job placements, I have always found Donna will go the extra mile to ensure that she delivers an outstanding service every time whether that be in identifying the best candidate for my job vacancies or candidate management with placements made into the business. I know that Donna will only send candidates through to me who are a role match, therefore, I have had a number of the temporary candidates placed into full-time roles. The team at Zelda Recruitment are an absolute pleasure to deal with and when you receive a service like this, it is why I keep going back to use them throughout my career. The recruitment agency I chose in my role as a HR Manager represents me, so I make sure I choose the right one!
Zelda and Janine really get engaged with understanding our culture and our key resources to ensure the talent they provide is well suited to our organisation. They have provided many great resources over the last decade and continue to offer excellent value to us.
I would just like to say that after recently being unemployed for the first time in my working career, that you restored my faith in recruitment agents. I found you extremely personable and easy to talk to. You were highly flexible, having agreed to meet me during my lunch hour. You went above and beyond having contacted one of your previous clients, just in case they had a vacancy that matched my skillset. I would definitely recommend you and will definitely contact you in the future should my current position not work out.
My relationship with Zelda goes back almost a decade and during this time Zelda was always able to find me job opportunities that were challenging but satisfying at the same time. Over time we established good and long-term relationships with our Brisbane clients in both the profit and not-for-profit sectors which we were able to do by trusting and respecting one another. I would definitely recommend Zelda as a recruitment agency for anyone trying to find their place in the greater Brisbane job market. On a personal note I would like to thank Janine Chatfield for all the good work she's put in for me over the last 10 years.
