Our Consultant Spotlight Q&A Series highlights our consultants across each of the three divisions within the Compass Associates brand. The latest article in this series introduces Benedict Warnes from the Healthcare division.
What is your role and how long have you worked at Compass?
I am a Senior Principal Consultant and have been working with Compass Associates for six years.
What markets do you cover?
I recruit full-time, permanent Theatre Practitioners across Greater London and Southern England.
Advice for job seekers
There is a lot of opportunity for Theatre Practitioners in the UK, both as a permanent employee, as well as via locum work, so can sometimes seem overwhelming to decide which direction to take.
When partnering with a recruiter, we can discuss personalised specific requirements and ensure that we are putting you in front of the right people within the sector, and ultimately are getting the best offer that works for you with both your career, and personal life in mind.
Current changes you foresee within the sector?
With the ongoing success of skilled working visas making it accessible for overseas nursing professionals to live and work in the UK, We are seeing positive changes in overall staffing levels across the sector. This naturally means that demand for locum work is starting to reduce, and a lot of practitioners are opting for full-time permanent opportunities which offer excellent career progression and benefits.
Career highlight within Compass
Winning Employee of the Quarter and Sales Shield Awards, and being nominated for various Core Values Awards are definite highlights for me. Also, the End of Quarter parties are always a good chance to catch up with the rest of the business over a drink or two!
A bit about you outside of work
I love being outdoors, and am a keen cyclist, surfer and rock climber. I also have a passion for property, and outside my recruitment work, I enjoy renovating and developing properties in Brighton and Hove.
