Who are Zenith People?

We’re Zenith People, and in the most literal sense, we’re a recruitment agency located in the North East. Though, we’d prefer to say; We’re Zenith People. A team of committed and enthusiastic individuals who work together to deliver an informed and value-adding recruitment service. We work hard on behalf of our clients and candidates (who we like to call our people)—applying our knowledge, experience and a little lateral thinking where needed. This ensures everyone receives a positive and enjoyable experience that delivers the right candidate for the right job.

We pride ourselves on treating everyone equally, honestly, fairly and within the letter of the law. Our recruitment processes and values face rigorous testing. This is to ensure fairness and impartiality while representing you, your business and your brand.

How We Got Here

Zenith People was established in 2001. Since then, we’ve been working with a broad range of employers across the North East. That’s more than 20 years! So, not only have we gathered lots of recruitment experience in that time. We’ve come to know our region inside out. Starting in a tiny shared office in Hebburn with a team of just two. We are now a team of over 30, operating out of our own dedicated office space.

From our beginnings as a specialist Engineering & Manufacturing recruitment business. We supplied temporary and permanent staff primarily within the Food, Packaging and Automotive sectors, we have added expertise throughout our team. Now we recruit for roles across the Commercial, Construction and IT & Technical employment markets.

How Zenith People Work

At Zenith People we always try to gather feedback from our clients and candidates to check how we’re doing. This feedback tells us that our overriding approach is consultative. We listen to clients and candidates and use the information we gather to develop a recruitment strategy that meets their needs in a tailored way. As far as we’re concerned, one size does not fit all.

Once we understand what is needed, we work hard to deliver, inform openly throughout the process, and apply our expertise to any given situation. By looking at a recruitment strategy in an individualised way, we can focus and use our energy to find the best possible match in the shortest space of time.
