Sam Leighton-Smith, Director comments:

“It is with great excitement and satisfaction that we can announce these promotions as we head into the new financial year. Excitement as the promotions indicate our business is growing in line with commercial forecasts which can not be achieved without a quality offering. Satisfaction as the promotions are all “home grown” from within the compass stable, a testament to the training we give to those new to the recruitment industry. Pete, Emma, Chris and Stuart have all developed tremendously throughout their tenure here. We are proud to have a business where people can develop their careers and look forward to their teams they oversee develop as they did once before.”

We wish our new Divisional Managers every success in their new roles and here’s to a fantastic 2018/19!
