I worked with Zac during my role as HR Director at Crawshaws, meeting him several times face-to-face and speaking on the phone more frequently. Zack is an attentive listener and always tried to accommodate my requests, even when they were slightly left-field. I judge Zac to be open and honest in character and I would welcome the opportunity to work with him again.
Andy Jeffcut, Head of People at the EBP
From the initial phone call about the Recruiment Advisor role I had applied for Stacey was really helpful and knew a lot about the position and company culture. I was kept in the loop about where my application was up to and when a date for interview was arranged she sent me over all information I needed and the job spec to have a read through so I was fully prepared. I came out of the interview with doubts on how well I had done but Stacey was fantastic and really helped me with my confidence and decision to move forward in the process. It was really good to speak to someone who was very genuine and supportive throughout.
Christie Watts, Candidate
Great people to work with but Zac’s BBQing skills leave a lot to be desired.
Recruitment Business Partner
As with every retailer, recruiting top talent is vital to deliver exceptional service and for the business to grow, and this is where Becky and her team at Zachary Daniels have really excelled for us. Becky & Ria have taken the time to really understanding our business, the company ethos and brand, which has led to successful placement of managers across our sites within the past year. I know from candidates that they offer a fantastic aftercare service where the candidate is assisted throughout the new steps in their career – all of which helps my business in the long term and ensures the right people are being placed in the right locations. Our people are our greatest asset and I have full confidence in Becky and Ria at Zachary Daniels in finding the next top talent to continue to grow our business and would have no hesitation in recommending their retail expertise to any business.

Mark was great whilst helping place me at my new employer. Great communicator, personable with bags of experience and knowledge.
Luke McCluskey, Area Manager
Adem has advised and assisted me with several applications and career changes over the years and last year placed me in Karen Millen. He was so supportive and professional, which lead to me being so happy at work now- it’s the perfect role for me and I’m so grateful for all his advice and time! I’d strongly recommend him, and do, to anyone looking for sound advice and support every step of the way!
Sophie London, Dual Site Retail Manager at Karen Millen
Adem was a big support in placing me into my new role in Charles Tyrwhitt. He was with me every step of the way, giving advice and guidance in a professional manner. What stands out is the aftercare, despite successfully guiding me, Adem continued contact to ensure my first few weeks in the business was a success. Highly recommend.
James Allen, General Flagship Manager
It was a pleasure to work with Kerry in my previous role. Kerry’s professionalism and her genuine passion for Recruitment really shines through. Kerry’s Retail knowledge is second to none, combined with her great understanding of the right person for the brand was a recipe for success! I would strongly recommend Kerry and the Zachary Daniels Team!
Natasha D, Resourcing Coordinator at ITV Careers
I would like to take this time to compliment your colleague Naomi Walsh on her outstanding service and beautiful character… It’s so refreshing to know that there are still individuals out there in the industry, that respect and value their clients and go that extra mile for them.
Helen Panayiotou, Spa & Leisure Centre
David was originally recommended to me via a candidate, which in itself is a real positive. David has clearly demonstrated that he is well connected and respected within the commercial trading Retail/Wholesale industry. He clearly understands his clients needs and takes the time and effort to know what his candidates are looking for, which allows for sound judgment calls on the ‘right match’. David ensures that both his clients and his candidates are treated with care and professionalism which really sets him apart; David isn’t full of sales patter, he listens, checks understanding and then he delivers.
Rachael Evans, Senior HRBP & Head of Group Recruitment
Marc has helped me recruit for several mid and senior positions over the past 2 years. From the outset, Marc has been a refreshing consultant to work with; he has listened and understood my requirements and also ensured from the candidate’s perspective a 2-way fit. In this competitive industry, I will only partner with someone I can trust. I have always been impressed with Marc’s approach, delivery, on boarding and knowledge of the market – I’m pleased to say I’ve hired some great candidates as a result of Marc’s support.
Kate Gould, Group Head of HR at Comfy Quilts Ltd
I have known Adem for many years throughout his career, and I can honestly say he is one of the most genuine and invested individuals I have met. Adem truly cares about placing the right people in the right place, and takes time to get to know everyone he is working with, and in a very competitive field he will always give you his honest opinion about your suitability for a role. Throughout the recruitment process Adem ensures he stays in touch and ensures you are happy with everything at every stage, and goes above and beyond to check in after starting in your next role to see how everything is going. His compassion, professional attitude, and care comes across in abundance, and I would personally recommend anyone seeking their next move in their career to get in touch with Adem.

With our reputation for quality and service at the heart of everything we do, it was important to find a team that understood our passion and be able to work alongside us to deliver this – and quickly!

Marc continues to deliver on expectation with character and pace, which makes working with him fun and rewarding.

Emma-Louise is a fantastic example of a retail recruiter, providing me with great advice, along with insights of the market place both on the Island of Ireland and the United Kingdom. I would highly recommend her and Zachary Daniels to anyone looking to grow their teams with quality Managers and Leaders within the luxury retail environment.
Louisa has been an exceptional recruiter to work with. Louisa took the time to understand my requirements and quickly arranged relevant meetings. Throughout the process Louisa kept me informed and was readily available for catch ups! I particularly enjoyed being treated as a valued and understood candidate from our first conversation – unlike some agencies that throw anything in your direction without qualifying the basics. Louisa is an enthusiastic and outgoing recruiter who truly understands the client. An absolute pleasure. Highly recommended.
Kayleigh Fazan, District Manager
Leanne recently worked on an assignment for Ryman to recruit for a buying / merchandising role with some very specific requirements. She thoroughly understood the brief and was able to provide a strong short list from which we were able to recruit in a timely fashion. The process was quick and efficient and Leanne was a pleasure to deal with.
It is rare to find reliable and trustworthy recruiter but Tamsin has certainly been that. Tamsin helped to fill several roles since working with my current employer, she completely understood our needs and provided us with several exceptional candidates. I would highly recommend Tamsin if you are seeking for a new opportunity or are a business in need of recruitment advice.
Paul Millward, Junior Merchandiser at Sainsbury’s
Having worked with Mark in the past he has been very professional, efficient and realistic, traits that are invaluable when you are looking for your next opportunities in the business world.

Martina Lamden, Head of Operations
Becky has come on board as one of our agency suppliers for retail field roles and in the short time she has worked with us has delivered a great caliber of candidates. I feel she takes the time to listen to who we are and what our needs are for individual roles and as a result has always delivered great candidates. Becky’s character is warm, personable and I have a great rapport with her. She has a wealth of experience and I am happy to be guided by her knowledge of her candidates.

This comes about through his honest and direct approach. Marc always takes the time and makes the effort to keep candidates and clients up to date throughout the process, showing a level of communication and commitment that is quite rare in todays world.

Duncan Gornall, Sales and Marketing Director at Leeds Bronze Engineering
Kim is one in a million – it is rare to find recruiters with such fantastic energy and passion for genuinely placing the right people in the right roles. The dedication and accountability Kim brings to our recruitment needs, taking time to really understand what we want and how we think, often makes us feel like she is an extension of our own team – again such a connection is rare to find within the recruitment industry. Not only has Kim found us some great talent she has also been fantastic at managing applicant expectations throughout the recruitment process and ensuring candidates are happy and settled once they have joined our brand. I hope you get the recognition you deserve Kim!

Stacey really looks after us at Crew Clothing, shes always super speedy at getting us candidates and knows the Crew brand and what we are looking for really well. Stacey’s always so friendly to talk to and a joy to work with.
I have dealt with numerous Recruitment companies over my Retail Career and it’s always been for me about the relationship that you build between each other, a relationship based upon trust and Integrity , one of understanding needs of both the client and the business that is seeking talent. When I set out to find my new role, I used several of the recruitment companies I had used in the past… and Zachery Daniels, in which I met Adem as my contact. After the initial contact and explaining all about my career path and what type of opportunity I was looking for, Adem set to work. I found Adem ‘s tenacious effort from beginning of the process to the final offer and beyond to be refreshing! His communication was frequent and consistent, His support and understanding has been second to none. His ability and understanding of senior roles aided me in securing my new role. Adem is a true business professional, and an ambassador for his business, not only that,… because surely that’s what people should be like , his ability to genuinely be able to build rapport and deliver for his clients is a testament to Adem. I believe that if I have any recruitment needs in the future I would 100% use Adem and Zachery Daniels in the future.
