Benedict Warnes MIRP CertRP – Senior Consultant
What made you choose a career in recruitment?
After returning from a round the world trip, I was interested in getting into a career where I could quickly progress and see a direct correlation between work rate and success. It is sometimes hard to decide what career path to take, however after doing some research and speaking to people who were in the industry, I thought it seemed like a good fit for my personality.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
I enjoy speaking to lots of different people from different backgrounds and situations. There is a certain satisfaction of working alongside a candidate in their hunt for a new role. I also love the fast paced and strategic elements of the job, every day being different and bringing it’s own challenges.
What is your proudest achievement so far?
Winning Employee of the Quarter within my first year of recruitment is a huge achievement! I couldn’t be happier; especially when I look back at the progress that I have made over the last year.
What’s the best thing about working for Compass Associates?
I think the culture is amazing; it’s great to have such an open and honest relationship with everyone in the company. Including the senior management and directors. It’s always a good laugh to see the whole business at the quarterly event where all the offices get together for a big party.
What are you passionate about outside of work?
I have a background in music, and have a real passion for playing drums, DJ-ing and getting out to gigs on the weekend. I also love to travel and experience different cultures.
