Having worked with Compass Associates for the past 2 years and having grown a great working relationship with Christian Hannam, I can honestly rate the service and support offered through Compass Associates as the greatest support I have experienced. Christian has been there on the phone to provide support, empathy and understanding to all my personal situations.

Frequently speaking numerous times a week and often outside of hours within this, Christian always responded to any calls or messages as soon as he has been able, and often putting up with my personal anxiety at facing the prospect of seeking alternative employment. Christian gave objective unbiased support and provided multiple opportunities for me to understand that time will lead us to where we need to get to and abate any fears that I may have had. He is well-versed and knowledgeable on all the services and positions he has put forward - he honestly has become someone I would happily call a friend.

Christian has a wealth of contacts in the sector and often supported to open doors that had not considered being opened prior to his involvement. Not to forget the rest of the Compass Associates team I have spoken to, as I will not forget the support I have received. Thanks Compass Associates and an even bigger thank you to Christian.
