I can’t thank Compass Associates enough they made the transition from NHS to private super easy. They guided me every step of the way, gave me some tips and pointers for the interview, check in calls to make sure I was happy and if I needed any help. Many thanks to Josh, within a day of uploading my CV on the website, I received a phone call from them to discuss my job preferences (salary, location, other benefits, etc.) and I can honestly say that they truly listened to what I was looking for. Very happy customer.

Lucy Chifodya, Operating Department Practitioner

It was a real pleasure working with Josh. He was friendly, helpful, enthusiastic and incredibly supportive. His support was invaluable during the pre and post-interview stages. He was a great sounding board. It was great to have him as a go-between myself and the company. His weekly phone calls were really helpful to keep me on track with the onboarding process. I’ll miss those calls. I wouldn’t hesitate to contact Compass Associates and recommend them to my friends and colleagues in the future.

Dr Abidemi Adeniji, General Practitioner

Josh was extremely helpful and attentive throughout the process. He called regularly to check in with me and was happy to follow up with any outstanding issues during the recruitment & onboarding process. He also identified a different role within the organisation that might be suitable for me when it was apparent that the initial one I had enquired about would not be a good fit.
