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're a culture first company, and enjoy an active calendar of both company and team organised events! 🍔🍻🎯

The big event in the Zinc calendar for team bonding is our annual retreat ✈️: in 2023 we went to Bergerac in France 🇫🇷 and for 2024 we're off to France again! 🇫🇷 (we've got seats on the plane saved for our new joiners!🥳)

🪴We recently redefined our company values…

Life at Zinc is: Focused, Empowered and Trusted.
