Lily and David pass REC exams with Merit!

3rd April 2020

Compass Associates were delighted to congratulate Senior Recruitment Consultant Lily Bulbeck from the Care Home division, and Head of Compass Life Sciences David Jolley, for both passing their REC exams with Merit!

The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) is the most trusted recruitment industry body, providing governance and regulation for all members, and Compass Associates are proud to be affiliated with this professional body.

Membership of the REC demonstrates commitment and professionalism to best practice and world-class recruitment standards and all Compass Associates’ consultants are encouraged to study for the Certificate in Recruitment Practice as part of their career progression within the company.

As a business, there are 30 employees who have successfully passed all their REC exams, becoming Members of Recruitment and Employment Confederation (MREC)with a further 7 members of staff in the process of completing their final modules. In addition, there are 6 Fellows of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (FREC) within the business – an accolade you can only achieve having been in the industry for 10 years and having passed the exams.

Commenting on the recent success, Directors, Mike Jeffreys and Chris Russell said:

“Congratulations to Lily Bulbeck for passing her REC exam (with Merit may I add) after weeks of continuous hard work and study, which is testament to her daily application and endeavour.

Lily is our latest example of a homegrown consultant having joined Compass Associates a little over a year ago and is firmly on the upward trajectory of her recruitment career – a massive well-done!”

“David Jolley has worked tirelessly to develop the Life Sciences brand of the business and achieving a Merit in his recent REC exam is the culmination of an excellent year! This industry recognised accreditation adds even more credibility to his long recruitment career and to the business as a whole. Well done David!”   

Huge congratulations to Lily and David!
