“For me, the impact is just knowing that the checks are done, the DBS comes in a very nice format and I can easily see that we've got the references we need. It's the peace of mind that we've done those checks, they are solid and we know we're hiring the right people.”
Alex Pazik
Safeguarding manager
“Having the process automated is great, it has reduced the time I am spending in the process. DBS checks are coming back in a matter of days means we have not had any issues with start dates as a result.”
Dominika Mielniczek
People Team Associate
“It’s working fantastically. The time saving element, which is one of the reasons we chose Zinc, has been excellent so far and the team have found it easy to use.”
Gareth Bowley
Recruitment Manager
“We click on Zinc, the UX is easy. It's very intuitive. It's 3 clicks, and you're done. This was really important to us from not only the customer side but also from the admin side as we’re the ones who have to use it daily. I don't want to go through a 10-click process to do something as simple as sending a reference.”
Mike Cole
People operations & Experience Lead
“Zinc has done us wonders and saved us so much time. This has meant our team has started doing more work on other projects which we couldn’t do beforehand, it’s definitely helped our workload.”
Jack Gifford
People Business Partner
”We are very satisfied with Zinc as our background check provider. Their great service seamlessly integrates with our HR tools, allowing us to expedite and enhance the onboarding process for our new joiners.”
Arta Abāšina
Head of People Operations
“I can’t fault Zinc really, for me it’s been a seamless process even with changing the integrations from Workable to Greenhouse it’s been easy. As a team when it comes to the process we don’t even have to think about it really, which is a good thing.”
Philip Stephens
People Operations Specialist
“Zinc is coming up with new ways to improve the experience such as allowing the HMRC check to be able to be completed alongside regulatory references, a game changer when ensuring that a candidate's work history is accounted for. All in all, a great experience so far!”
Claire Jackson
Compliance Coordinator
“The Zinc team comes with ideas that brings it to the next level. I really appreciate that there is a willingness to develop and make changes. It's quick and it just happens. It's so difficult to find other partners that have that have that same mindset. For me that's the most important thing that you actually want to hear what we're saying and adapt to our ways of thinking.”
Marlen Gfrörer
Staff Onboarding
“I needed something that I could rely on to do thorough background checks. You can't cut corners on recruitment in education. If you can't do the safeguarding at recruitment, then you're letting unsafe people into the organisation. I needed something that I could depend on, and I’m 100% confident Zinc is that.”
Alex Pazik
Safeguarding Manager

We have been using Zinc for nearly 2 years now and it has made a world of difference with our onboarding.

Tom Dibble-Burge
COO & Co-founder
“Zinc is brilliant! It takes a big burden off us by handling reference follow-ups and chasing. Plus, the integration with PinPoint works great!

Being 100% compliant with our client’s background verification requirements gives me peace of mind and keeps us feeling on top of our game!”
