Laura recently sourced a Head of Clinical governance for us: the calibre of candidates put forward by Laura was extremely high and matched my requirements exactly. What I really liked about Laura was that there were no “hard, pushy” sales techniques that I have experienced with recruitment consultants in the past. I will not hesitate to approach Laura for any corporate roles in the future.

Aaron Flaherty, Chief Executive Officer

Laura was the consultant who facilitated and supported my job search and recruitment into a new role with my current company. Throughout the process I was kept up to date , supported and everything was timely, professional and easy. The jobs I reviewed from Laura were exactly what I was looking for and she kept in contact throughout. I highly recommend Laura if you are looking for a new role.

Emma Waring, Head of Quality & Safety

Just a short note to let you know what a great credit Laura is to your company. She has been an absolute delight to work with from the first moment she contacted me. Nothing was too much trouble but more importantly she made me feel that she was as interested in my needs as much as your client. She really is very, very good.”

Violeta Ainslle, Risk & Governance Manager

Laura was so professional, yet approachable and very easy to talk to. She was knowledgeable about the position I was applying for and was in close contact with my now manager. I was kept informed at every stage of the recruitment process which eased my anxiety, which is understandable when applying for a new job.

Laura has kept in contact with me since starting my new position and even sent me a good luck card. Touches like this are lovely and refreshing in the current work climate.

I feel this was just my time and everything fell nicely into place with Laura’s help and advice. I cannot thank Laura and Compass Associates enough as I am loving my new role and I am much happier now being in a workplace that looks after your physical and mental wellbeing.
