As a result of a strong working relationship with the Managing Director, Compass Associates were approached to support with the recruitment of a Head of Occupational Therapy for a mental health provider, who were undergoing an internal restructuring in the business.

As a result, the organisation had seen an increase in investment across various sites, and were looking to expand their expertise in therapy, as part of a newly created role.

Compass Associates were tasked with sourcing an experienced Head of Occupational Therapy, who had run and chaired MDT’s, had experience of managing psychiatrists, and strong governance experience. The client was open to any discipline, but the successful candidate would need to have demonstrated the ability to coordinate therapy teams in their past role.

Compass Associates conducted a thorough market search and were able to identify a candidate who met the full criteria with a background working in mental health therapy for the NHS, leading their own team. Following a video introduction, then an onsite team, the successful candidate then took part in a tour of the business with the Managing Director, was offered the role and accepted.

A great experience for my first time using a recruitment company! Adam contacted me with a role that was really fitting to my skill set. He was able to answer any of the questions I had about the role and was professional and supportive throughout the process. I would highly recommend Adam for anyone looking to fill a vacancy, or someone looking for the next step in their career.
