The first moment I spoke to Michelle I knew she had a different approach to other recruiters. She listened with sincerity, she gave me an honest appraisal of the role I was interviewing for and helped me every step of the way both before the interview and afterwards. She has kept in touch and motivated me along the way. The key word to describe Michelle is integrity. I wish her luck in her new venture Zest4Talent. April 2022

National Account Manager

Michelle has been an absolute pleasure to deal with, she is personable, kind, patient and professional. Whilst all other recruiters have made me feel like a number to fill a role and been pushy, Michelle has been calm, informative and given wonderful advice to ensure that the company is the right fit for me. She is a delight and I would recommend her to anyone, in fact I have! April 2022

Customer Service

We had previously struggled to find suitable candidates but successfully filled our bespoke vacancy in a short timeframe which was essential for our business at the time. We would like to thank Michelle, who was easy to talk to and very attentive to our requirements with lots of contact and feedback along the way. We will definitely be using Michelle and her new business Zest4Talent. May 2022


Michelle was a huge support to me during the interview process for a senior sales management position. She offered guidance and critique every step of the way. I was counter offered by another company and never accepted the role she had put me forward for, however her reaction to this was so supportive and genuine I made sure I came back to her as a client this time and asked her to recruit for my sales team on a national basis. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any client. April 2022


Michelle at Zest4Talent contacted me about a job opportunity. Michelle has a different approach to most recruiters I have previously dealt with. She was open and transparent and took the time to really get to know me and what I was looking for. She knows the businesses she works with very well which gave me confidence in her ability to match me to the right role. She supported me throughout the interview preparation process and gave honest and constructive feedback. The role she has recently placed me in ticks all my boxes and I now love my job! Her service was exceptional and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her and Zest 4Talent. May 2022

Business Development Manager

I have worked closely with Michelle for over 9 years now. I have always found her to be professional, diligent and extremely hard working. Once I built a working relationship with her, every candidate she has put in front of me for an interview has been qualified for the role and more importantly once hired they have had longevity in the post. I believe this is because, unlike a lot of recruitment agents I have worked with, she listens! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any business/hiring manager. May 2022
