The Zest Way

Zest. A recruitment company where every job counts.

We understand that recruitment companies often get a bad press. So, here at Zest we are bringing a refreshingly new and different approach to food and drink manufacturing recruitment. Unlike others we aim to be the recruitment company that makes sure it can be counted on at every step of the recruitment journey: every person, every job, every time.

Work with us and experience the Zest way:

  • FOOD AND DRINK MANUFACTURING. IT’S WHAT WE DO.

    We only deal with food and drink manufacturing. Nothing else. It means we know our stuff.
  • DOING IT THE
    RIGHT WAY.

    Do it the right way, do it right first time and do right by our clients. It’s that simple.
  • BE SMART.

    By being knowledgeable and intelligent we can make good recruitment decisions. We believe that can make the difference between great careers and dead end jobs.
  • BE QUICK.

    Job opportunities can come and go in the blink of an eye. So we are responsive and quick off the starting block.
  • CONSTANTLY CONNECTED.

    As specialists we know the movers and shakers and the people making things happen. This gives you much more chance of getting the best opportunities.
  • FLEXIBLE &
    BESPOKE.

    One size rarely fits all. So we never put people in boxes and we listen carefully to their needs. Only then will we create an agile plan that fits.
  • AS INDIVIDUAL
    AS OUR
    CONSULTANTS ARE.

    We encourage our consultants to go about their roles with professionalism, flair, personality and to speak from the heart. Each candidate gets our full attention and best efforts. This makes for a better and more engaging service.

We are in this industry to make careers, to make people successful and happy and, ultimately, to make every job count. This is why we are different to other recruitment businesses.

Zest Foundation

Life isn't always easy for young people. Many we meet have no direction, no goals and no support. We wanted to make a difference for these local 16-25 year olds, so we set up the Zest Foundation to give them new opportunities and hopefully, a renewed focus and energy for the future!
