HealthInvestor Awards 2018 Finalists!

20th March 2018

awardsFinalists2018Black-01For the second consecutive year, Compass Associates are proud to announce that we have been shortlisted as Finalists in the category of “Recruiter of the Year” for the 2018 HealthInvestor Awards as part of Compass Holding Group.

The Awards are widely considered to be the leading industry calendar event of the year, which recognises, celebrates and highlights the best talent within the independent health and social care industry.

Comprised of three individual brands offering three separate service offerings, Compass Holding Group is the largest, dedicated recruitment and executive search firm specialising purely in the independent sector. Their dedicated teams specialise in placing professionals into the private communities (Equity and Corporate), independent and 3rd Sectors to great effect.

The three brands comprising Compass Holding Group are:

Compass Associates – responsible for contingency, advertised search, RPO and master vendorship solutions for clinical and non-clinical vacancies, from service manager through to SMT level personnel;

Compass Executives – experts in C-suite search and selection function, catering for Private Equity, Independent and 3rd Sectors, with the focus solely on executive level positions driving health, social care and education organisations forward;

Compass Corporate Services – established in 2016 in response to clients’ increased demands for a recruitment firm with specific knowledge of central function recruitment in tandem with sector knowledge across HR, Finance and Accounting, and Marketing.

Specifically within the recruitment category, judges look for evidence of success within the independent health and social care sectors, case studies demonstrating excellence and how it impacts the disciplines you specialise in, testimonials from peers within the industries, clear volume, scale and complexity of the work provided, and growth of the business.

Last year, the judge’s comments included:

“Compass demonstrated understanding of the sector due to the specialist nature of the business, resulting in successful placements. They have a very good reputation within the sector and have both a working knowledge of the clinical and non-clinical needs of employers.”

“Recruitment is a formulaic business – consistency is therefore an important ingredient for success. That’s why Compass stand out – it does what it says on the tin, over and over again.”

Commenting on the nomination, Director Sam Leighton Smith said:

“Naturally we are thrilled here at Compass Holding Group to be recognised again by HealthInvestor for our contribution to the sector. More pertinently, it is a symbol of recognition that we are working to a consistently high level and providing our valued customers with a compelling service offering. We work an increasingly regulated environment, for good, and one in which we aim to thrive in for years to come.”
