Emerald Zebra 

Founded in 2021 by the leading recruitment industry executive Donna Stephenson, Emerald Zebra exists to service the financial and technology jobs market across Cyprus and beyond. Licensed by the Ministry of Labour and Social Insurance (License 406), its inception is in response to the ongoing attraction and facilitation of direct investment in key economic areas in Cyprus, as well as the promotion of Cyprus as a tech hub and European investment destination.

The rationale behind EZ’s formation was simple; opportunities for roles in Cyprus in the financial, technological and fiscal outsourced services sector are growing exponentially month on month. Cyprus itself has become the destination of choice for many large corporations that have opened satellite offices or European Headquarters.  These organisations have publicly stated that the infrastructure, educated population and not least fantastic climate makes Cyprus the ideal location to base their enterprises.


Emerald Zebra's Founder

Donna Stephenson is a highly experienced recruitment and human resources-centric executive, with a 20 year career to date and originating from the UK. Prior to founding Emerald Zebra, Donna founded and directed a market leading recruitment, HR and payroll consultancy group for 13 years, the largest in Cyprus, for which as founder, until her successful exit in 2018, she was at the forefront of several businesses within the group. Donna has lived in Limassol almost permanently for the last 19 years and has assisted the careers of thousands of local and expat individuals over this time as well as providing career opportunities in Cyprus to repatriating Cypriots.
