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 found the staff at Compass Associates to be professional and approachable; they have dealt with any issues that I have raised and have kept in contact with me at all times to update me.  When one staff member was not available I was given the name and contact details of who would cover; my messages and queries were always responded to and I was kept up to date at all times. Adam has been friendly, honest and helpful; if there was nothing to update me on he would still call to check in and I am now about to start a very exciting new role thanks to his work, support and encouragement.

Adam went out of his way to ensure I had all the up to date and accurate info of the job. He also gave reassurance and support due to leaving my current role after 12 years.

My experience of Compass Associates has been excellent, following an initial telephone consultation Adam Brenton was both professional and offered support and guidance in relation to my job search, having left a job suddenly he worked tirelessly to find me other opportunities.  I have now successfully secured a nursing role and have felt completely engaged with the process thanks to his continued feedback and support.  I would definitely recommend Compass to other professionals.
