About Zed

Experience with a fresh approach

Zed is an Edinburgh based recruitment consultancy set up by Suzanne Ramsay. Suzanne has worked in recruitment since 1986, initially recruiting accountants before moving into recruitment in the investment industry in 1986. She set up the first specialist recruitment service for the financial services sector in 1992.

Suzanne created Zed to service the requirements of clients within the asset management, asset servicing and wealth management sectors although this has also lead to undertaking assignments within other professional services firms.

Zed has been  built on a set of core values which distinguish it from other consultancies, because it’s as much about what we don’t do as what we do that makes Zed so special. At Zed there is:

  • Zero Nonsense
  • Zero Ego
  • Zero Attitude
  • Zero Jargon

We want to add value, not tick a box

Zed prides itself in its ability to fill so-called “hard to fill” roles and provide a high quality, straightforward service. As you would expect, all of our candidates screened to ensure they are a good fit for both a company’s vacancy and for their culture too.  We understand the importance of matching personal values to those of the business and believe that this is a vital part of our service

With Zed, communication is key. We stay in touch throughout the entire recruitment process and act as go-to source of information; we’re always here to help and we want you to feel confident that Zed can get the job done.

Zed listens where so many others don’t.
