There's nothing random about our business, so you won’t be surprised to learn that there's nothing random about our name either.
Whilst zebras all look the same, when you look closer each has its own unique set of markings. And, very occasionally, a zebra is born with spots rather than stripes.
Just like zebras, we know that candidates can all too often look the same on paper. Yet, once we delve a little deeper, we see each candidate has their own set of unique skills, experiences and knowledge that set them apart from each other.
As no two candidates are the same, it is not always easy to identify the ideal candidate; that person who perhaps on paper might not have fitted the mould at all.
We want to help you delve deeper, uncover the soft skills you need and find the right people for the right roles in your organisation.
