Thinking about a career with Zest Optical?
We want to give you an honest insight as to what a career with Zest looks like. We work in a people industry; whether it’s the candidates we represent or the Hiring Managers whose problems we solve. We understand the importance of attracting the best talent in the market and the importance of developing and retaining the best people.
It’s very easy to make bold statements about how our people are valued, and how we create a great work life balance; so rather than pay lip service to this we’ve gone one step further. Take a look at some of the perks which we offer…. your eyes aren’t deceiving you, we really are that generous!
Birthday gifted as holiday
Although I'm sure the prospect of spending your birthday with your work colleagues is particularly appealing we'll gift you an extra days holiday on top of your 25 day allowance.
Quarterly team incentives
Day out at the races, go karting or a city break. Quarterly team incentives are in place and provide a great excuse for everyone to have a break from the office.
Industry leading commission
Our commission scheme is unrivalled... we reward you for your efforts and what better way to top off a successful month than receiving a big commission cheque.
We invest in the latest tech and use AI Data Insights to streamline our search capabilities. You will have access to the most effective tools to optimise your performance.
Employee pension scheme
You might feel that planning for your retirement is light years away. You will be auto enrolled into our pension scheme.
Christmas is here but you've used all of your holiday allowance. Don't worry, you work hard throughout the year so enjoy yourself, spend some time with family and friends and take the week off.
You will be provided with extensive training and continued mentorship throughout your career with Zest.
Start the day as you mean to go on and help yourself to a healthy breakfast. Unfortunately Eggs Benedict isn't on the menu.
A Typical Working Day
Client / Candidate Contact
You'll be expected to have extensive interaction with both clients and candidates. We're a people business and relationships are at the heart of what we do. You'll need to demonstrate a high degree of empathy and an ability to develop rapport. Communication will be through a mixture of channels ranging from face-to-face meetings to messaging on Social Media.
You are expected to be an expert in your field and it takes time to develop this level of market insight. You will work alongside a highly experienced team who will provide guidance; you will also independently research your sector tapping into channels which provide high level market intelligence.
Long gone are the days when the only exposure a Recruiter had to marketing was writing a job advert. As an influencer we want you to strategically think about the content you create, how it engages with your audience and its impact. It's a fantastic opportunity to tap into your inner Don Draper.
Training & Team Meetings
This is a great opportunity to learn from a highly experienced team. We share best practice, support continued development and welcome new ideas. We have created a culture where you will be left to focus on doing what really matters as opposed to spending hours in meetings justifying your sales pipeline and reviewing targets.
Do you think you can make a difference?
First and foremost our people are the cornerstone of our business and we endeavour to create an environment where you are valued, challenged and rewarded for your efforts.
Every personality is unique and we’re certainly not looking for clones; however, there are some common traits which resonate throughout the team. This is a people industry and if conversation isn’t your thing then this isn’t the career for you. All of our team are passionate about being experts in their respective market. If you demonstrate this commitment to be the very best, we’re confident that with our training and continued support, you’ll succeed in this sector.
We’re committed to ensuring that you have a great work life balance, and will provide you with the tools which will allow you to streamline your working day. This isn’t corner cutting; it’s about working in a smarter way. Adopting Artificial Intelligence Data Insights to help with candidate identification is a great example of how we use tech to improve the quality of our service.
We are experiencing excellent levels of growth across some of our key markets and are focussed on attracting the very best talent to join our team.
