Three simple reasons to make us your technical recruitment partner

There’s a world of difference between ‘filling vacancies’ and finding real talent. That’s why Zachary Daniels goes further to find the people who can make a real difference to your organisation:


Technical – we get it

We understand your world because, before we were recruiters, our specialists worked in Engineering. Together, the ZD Recruitment Team has over 150 years’ combined experience in recruitment with global recruiters.

No team is more experienced, has a better network, or is better placed to find the right people for you.


More than an agency

We are your recruitment partner, and our focus is on meeting your targets, not ours. We’re the exclusive recruitment partner for a range of technical and engineering clients who also rely on us for market information, salary guides, market mapping, talent pipelining, supporting unsuccessful candidates and more.

When your in-house team is running short of time, people or inspiration, ask us to help.


Cultural fit

It takes more than skill and experience to turn a potential candidate into a great candidate - cultural and brand fit are vital. That’s why we meet more candidates face to face or via video calls, so you know the people we send your way share your values.

Our Expertise

For niche, national or international requirements. For large scale recruitment, specialist vacancies and head office appointments, we go further.

We dig deeper, getting to know every client and candidate inside out – because how else can we really find what you’re looking for? We rely on our people’s skills and networks to match talented candidates with brilliant brands, because we’ve yet to meet the algorithm that does it better.

And whilst it probably sounds a little cliched to say we ‘live and breathe’ our clients’ businesses and our candidates’ ambitions, we really do. And it shows.


Niche is the recruitment challenge you don’t know how to fill. It’s the role that’s just been created, the opportunity that’s unique to your business or a job that requires such a specific set of capabilities that you’re unsure where to start looking.

But we do.


National isn’t simply an issue of geography – although with bases in London, Belfast, Warrington and Glasgow we’re well placed meet your recruitment challenges, wherever you are and wherever you’re going next.

To us, ‘national’ is also a promise to evolve and respond to the recruitment changes required to thrive in the UK market. So as your strategy adapts, we adapt with you.


This year alone, we’ve matched candidates with clients across Europe, the UAE, US and the Far East.

We’re the first point of contact for many international brands seeking to enter the UK market, and we’re just as trusted by brands heading in the opposite direction. And if you’re the right brand fit, we’ll move heaven and earth to make sure that, when you pursue an international career, you don’t do it alone.

Our Approach

Finders. Keepers.

Our commitment to you: to treat every placement like it’s our only placement. To be honest and transparent. To do what we say we will. And to match only the right candidates with client brands who are their perfect fit.


Retained search & selection

Make easier, faster, more successful senior appointments to those niche and business-critical posts. Choose a recruitment partner with expertise in representing the biggest names in technical recruitment. We work with a network of technical experts to uncover the brightest talent and together, we ensure you gain access to the very best, without compromising confidentiality.

Retained advertised search

To find the right people, you have to know where to look. That means getting beyond the cv databases and advertising in the right areas to connect with your target audience. Our in-house experts and media partners plan and integrate the media campaigns to help you reach the best people more effectively.

Results only recruitment

No risk. No commitment. No initial outlay. Results-only recruitment allows you to try us out and pit us against your other recruitment suppliers. Because our experienced technical recruitment experts dig deeper and work faster to deliver results, we’re confident enough to compete. Put us to the test.

Proactive talent finding

Sometimes it’s not about a vacancy. It’s about finding the person who can take your business forward and, vacancy or not, you don’t want to miss them. We’ll identify the people who can make a real difference to your organisation and give you the first opportunity to make them a part of your team.

How it works:


It’s about more than pure skills. We’ll work with you to explore the values and traits candidates will possess if they’re to be your ideal brand fit.


A vast network is only the beginning. Identifying the candidates from that network, and knowing when to opt for some discreet headhunting or an advertising campaign, is what distinguishes the best recruitment agencies.


You won’t see them until we’ve seen them first. All our candidates are pre-screened and interviewed.


A better brief + a successful interview = a shortlist of talent the cv alone may not always reveal.


We arrange for shortlisted candidates to meet with your interviewer and communicate feedback from each party.


The suitable candidate receives an offer of employment. We help with any negotiations and support the candidate during any notice periods.


We’ll keep in regular contact with client and candidate throughout the first year to ensure everything is going smoothly.
