Zest Recruitment Ltd - Complaints Policy

1 Our Policy

The recruitment and selection process for 2013 aims to have processes which are fair, transparent and free from discrimination. We publish our standards and requirements on our web site and aim to comply with external standards.

Final decisions will be made in accordance with relevant client policies, employment legislation and statutory procedures.

We recognise that sometimes errors or failings can occur in process or procedure or in the way decisions are made. If you believe this has happened to you, you can use our complaints procedure. This complaints procedure provides a mechanism through which complaints can be investigated, responded to and where necessary provided with a remedy.

Your privacy and confidentiality will be respected and balanced with the need for an open and fair investigation. The outcome of the investigation will be reported appropriately and where necessary acted upon to improve processes and our quality of service. Your complaint will need to be shared with others who have been involved with the recruitment process in order to ensure a thorough investigation is carried out.

2 What can I complain about?

You can complain about how Zest Recruitment Ltd has treated you if you have evidence that processes or procedures have not been followed fairly, or the objectivity of decisions is called into question resulting in a major adverse effect. This includes meeting published deadlines.

3 How do I make a complaint?

You need to state your speciality and level, together with the complaint heading in the subject line. You must also provide full evidence to substantiate your complaint either within your email or as an attachment, along with a day time telephone contact number. If your complaint is about a late application or submission of documentation, you need to provide evidence about electronic failure.

Please write to

The sooner you make your complaint, the easier it is to investigate, and the sooner we can put right any issues if we need to provide a remedy to you. For these reasons you should make your complaint as soon as possible and at the latest within twenty working days of the incident.

  • If you allege unfairness of practice and process but you do not supply evidence to substantiate your allegation;
  • If you were judged insufficiently strong enough to merit competitive appointment to a post purely on the basis of your ranking in shortlisting or interview;

We aim to answer less complex complaints within ten working days and will update you at this point and every ten working days if the investigation into your complaint needs a longer period in which to respond fully.

Zest Recruitment Ltd will appoint a senior manager who has not been involved in the recruitment process about which you are complaining to consider the results of the investigation and respond to you.
