Meet the team

Zelda Leader

Associate Director - Temporary & Interim

​Zelda specialises in permanent and temporary roles in our Office Support team. She has recently joined us here in London, following almost three years in recruiting for the charity sector. With Zelda, what you see is what you get and that seems to really work when building and maintaining relationships with candidates and clients.

Prior to her career in recruitment, Zelda worked in mental health for several years setting up and managing two projects, supporting people to get back into work and develop their careers as part of their recovery. She has a strong interest in helping rehabilitate young people living with mental health issues in developing countries. In 2013, Zelda (out of a potential 4000 employees) received a staff excellence Leadership Award in acknowledgement of her work supporting Mental Health and Employment Services across Kent.

Zelda Leader
  • ​Zelda is a pleasure to work with. I have worked with her on recruiting temporary staff to my team, and found her to be very efficient in finding suitable candidates and working through the process. Zelda takes into account the needs of my team, and sends over candidates who are very relevant for the roles. We have successfully placed several staff through Zelda, and I look forward to working with her again in future.

  • ​I've had an incredibly positive experience working with Zelda. She was meticulous in finding positions she felt would be suited to my skill set and encouraging and helpful ahead of interviews. She is extremely professional, and I will certainly be turning to Zelda when I need the assistance of a recruiter in future.

  • ​Zelda is a true professional with high personal touch. She has a very humane approach and comes across as a very warm person. As one of her clients, I have found her very approachable. She truly listens and shows her belief in the person she is interacting with. I interacted with several other recruitment consultants, but Zelda stood out amongst all of them.

  • ​In my line of work, agents are part of life. I depend on them to help fill roles and I rely on them to portray the roles with the same energy, enthusiasm and passion as me. We were looking to fill a post of Compliance within the growing and demanding fundraising team. We had seen several people and we were getting to the stage when I thought the perfect person did not exist. Zelda never gave up searching - her personable approach, meticulous tendency as well as sheer dogged determination meant that the perfect person did exist. Three months in, she is still the perfect person. I would definitely work with Zelda again.

  • ​We had a Fundraising Officer role that we required temporary help at short notice. Given the appeals we were already working on, it was important that we had someone who could not only start immediately but was also able to get up to speed with the work and continue the campaign. I spoke to Zelda and she not only understood quickly what we required but also managed to find us a temp who was very experienced in fundraising who could join immediately. We have been very pleased with the temp's work and how she seamlessly took on the work and fit into the team. I now have a second temp through her and recommending her services. Zelda's polite manner, immediate grasp of your requirements and her ability to get you the right fit is commendable. I have no hesitation in recommending Zelda- she's my go-to person at Charity People.
