Adam was tasked to help our organisation recruit into a specialised position.  Adam provided us with high calibre candidates to interview and we were successful in recruiting into the role.  Adam was readily available and responded timely via telephone and email contact.  I would like to thank Adam for his efforts in securing us with our new employee and would approach him again for future recruitment needs.

I have been extremely pleased with Adam Brenton at Compass Associates and the way in which he contacted me and matched me to my new role.  My dealings with Adam have always been highly supportive, engaging and professional.  Adam supported me greatly throughout the whole process, particularly when he encouraged me to transition from the Band 5 role I was in to the Band 6 role that he found for me.  Adam helped me with my confidence to apply for this role, offering great advice and a thorough knowledge of the workplace I was applying to.  I found Adam’s approach very motivating, approachable and was greatly impressed with his competence in his own role within recruitment.  I cannot thank Adam enough for helping me to secure the Band 6 role I am now in, and for believing in me as an individual.  Adam is the consummate professional and I have no hesitation in recommending him and Compass Associates to friends and work colleagues who are requiring recruitment services.  Adam is a valuable asset to Compass Associates and a fantastic representation of the company as a whole.

It has been immense pleasure working with Adam Brenton.  Adam worked diligently and passionately to help secure a successful position for me.  Adam handled my recruitment seamlessly, kept in regular contact with me both telephonically and by email, across the entire process.  This was extremely satisfying.
