Since our origination, the HR team has been working closely with the Executive Board to cultivate a work environment that attracts and retains the best talent in the industry. We are proud of our diverse employee make-up, with a wide range of nationalities represented across the firm.

ZEDRA recognises the need to develop and expand an employee’s skill-set and encourages career growth, as well as supports a social culture too, with a local social event programme across each office that celebrates the companies’ inclusive culture.
