I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank Jordanna for assisting me and Marama Care search for our new Registered Manager.

The way Jordanna communicated the whole process was easy and straightforward and she was always keeping me updated on the progress and any questions that Stacey might have had.

Most importantly, we got the right Registered Manager as they have been nothing but brilliant in the 2 weeks that they have been here and we have already started benefiting from her experience and attitude. I know it’s still early days, but she is definitely someone I can trust to run my company whilst I take a step back when the time comes.

I will surely be in touch with Compass Associates as we grow and as I look at appointing more senior positions within the company.

I wanted to share the recent experience I have had with Jordanna, who has successfully supported me in achieving a new position as a registered manager in health and social care.

Throughout the process, not only was Jordanna professional, friendly, and great to work with, but I was kept up to date through the whole process which was extremely quick and efficient. I even received a personalised ‘congratulations on your new job’ card from Jordanna which was a lovely touch! 

I was highly cautious about going through a recruitment company to look for a new position however I can safely say this has changed my perception and I would no doubt look to work with Jordanna again if ever I was to look for a new position in the future.

Stacey Bradbury – New Multi-Site Registered Manager, Complex Care Provider

The world of management recruitment for both Adults and Children’s care is challenging at the best of times, but it has been made significantly less challenging due to working closely with Jordanna at Compass Associates. Our calls and updates have become a staple in my day, and the level of candidates she shortlists and sends over is not only of a high level, but they are also candidates I do not think twice about passing to the Leadership Team for consideration.

It’s been a pleasure working alongside Jordanna, and I hope we do for many years to come. When Jordanna calls there is no hesitation, I always answer. The reason is simple… she delivers!

Jordanna contacted myself in regard to a job suiting my CV and experience. This contact has resulted in a successful interview and a job which I have taken. Jordanna has kept up regular communication with myself and new employer and was helpful with background information regarding interview process and the new company.
I would absolutely contact Jordanna in any further job seeking.

Lauren Lockwood - Registered Manager, Specialist Care Provider

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jordanna for her tireless work and support in securing my new role. Jordanna was always so helpful and approachable - I have never had such a positive experience with a recruiter before! Previously I have been ghosted by recruiters, but Jordanna is such an excellent example of a recruiter and I felt that she truly went above and beyond, and she has restored my faith in the sector. My experience was such a positive one and I would not hesitate in recommending both Jordanna and Compass Associates to colleagues or other professionals trying to source a new role.

Thank you Jordanna for being such an absolute superstar - you are an absolute credit to Compass Associates!

Claire O'Brien - Business Development Manager

From the initial point of contact with Jordanna and Compass Associates, through the compliance process, and my eventual commencement in post, every element of the process was completed with the utmost professionalism and attention to detail.

Following on from my official start date, I then received periodic contact from Jordanna to ensure that everything was okay, and the role was exactly as expected.

I would not hesitate to recommend Jordanna and Compass Associates to any prospective employer, or employee.
