Who we are

Zinc builds automated reference and background checking tools for forward-thinking companies that really care about candidate experience. Founded in 2017, Zinc has a unique approach to background checking, that's redefining industry standards. We're an early-stage startup going through rapid growth. Zinc’s founding team have spent years in recruitment, talent, and HRTech. We saw a field plagued with inefficiency, prejudice and a lack of transparency. We first sought to solve the burden of referencing, then sought to tackle the broader category of background checking.

We believe in transparency for candidates and true respect for privacy in background checking. We believe in a fairer, more transparent process. One which is quick, easy, and productive for every party. A process enabling candidates to own their data, and companies to access the unbiased insights they need. We're proud to be helping some of the most iconic employer brands in the UK hire. Read what our customers say about Zinc:

We're a culture first company, and enjoy an active calendar of both company and team organised events! Making the most of our London location we have regular company socials which usually involve dinner, an activity (darts, shuffleboard, bowling, etc) and drinks. We have a team bouldering club 🧗, a poker club ♠️, a slow cooker society 🍲, running club (aka Zinc Zoomers!) 🏃 and regular board games!

The big event in the Zinc calendar for team bonding is our annual retreat ✈️: in 2022 we went to Tuscany, Italy 🇮🇹 and for 2023 we're off to Bergerac in France 🇫🇷 we've got seats on the plane saved for our new joiners!

Zinc is a company built on transparency, empowerment and data ownership.
