A HUGE Thank You

Not everybody knows, but Zest has a very different approach to employment. Inclusiveness is the key word in a philosophy which seeks give opportunity to those facing barriers to employment; a hand up, not a hand out.

We seek to shun the labels of ‘youth unemployment’, ‘learning difficulties’ and ‘offender’ by giving people the chance to work in a friendly and fun environment. Starting a new job is scary under any circumstances, never mind when you might be counted in one of these groups.

This is why we’d like to say a big thank you to those who know us best. The regular customers who understand what we do. Who naturally create a welcoming environment. Who treat everyone equally and take an interest in their lives, with patience and understanding. We couldn’t do it without you.

The benefits are plain to see. Confidence is critical for all of us (we’ve all been low at some point), and maybe some of us take being treated fairly and equally for granted, but it makes all the difference. And that’s the key thing that our placements take from our customers- confidence in being able to fit in, and to become a valued member of our ‘family’.

So, again, it’s a huge thank you from us, and we hope you stick with us through the journey. We need you for more than your custom.
