The job I applied for was advertised through Compass Associates and I have found the whole journey very stress free. The recruitment consultant I dealt with, Andrew Starmer-Allen, was always on the end of the phone, happy to answer any queries and always kept me in the loop regarding the interview process, outcome and finally the offer of the position.

To sum it up in three words… professional, friendly and accommodating.

I have had the benefit of receiving great service from Andrew, from the beginning of my recruitment journey I have experienced a very high level of professionalism.  From my application to getting the job, Andrew was always in contact keeping up to date with the progress of what was happening, always remained calm and never had a pushy attitude. I have thoroughly enjoyed this recruitment process which has resulted in a good outcome.

I’m pleased and fortunate enough to have had Compass Associates assist me in finding a new job.  The service I received from Andrew was very professional yet friendly. The coaching for the interview helped me to be confident and relaxed. I highly recommend this service, guaranteed you’ll be A-listed with your interviews.

We usually spread the word for bad customer service but keep the good reviews for ourselves. However, I am a firm believer of spreading the word for good service as well. I have had contact with several employment agencies throughout my working career. I must say Andrew Starmer-Allen from Compass Associates has been the best employment agent I have ever met. He knows how to build personal connection.

In contrary to other agents , Andrew is friendly and warm which are fantastic attributes for an employment agent. He follows up the whole process closely and informs you immediately about any progress.  He is also persuasive and a very good negotiator as well.  Keep up what are you doing Andrew because it works.

Working with Andrew at Compass is always a pleasure. He has taken the time to get to know us; our business, our culture and our people. He has developed a good understanding of who is a good fit with our team and business, which means less time spent on meetings with candidates who aren’t the right fit, and more successful hires.

I would like to thank Andrew for finding me my perfect candidate.  He was extremely efficient, honest and co-operative.  Even with jobs that aren’t the usual ask, he catered for my needs and did all he could to fulfil my requests.  He also creates a very nice B2B vibe and I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again. Thanks!

Andrew was an amazing source of support as I was apprehensive about interviewing after being in my last role for so long. He was always on hand to give his professional opinion and make me laugh at myself. Two interviews in one day, both gave me job offers! After one day of interviews I have my new job in Harley Street in a Private Clinic. It’s a new career for me in Cosmetics and I have great promotion opportunities!
Thank you so much.

I was supported by Andrew from the moment I sent my CV until I got the job.  I was never left alone in the process and he gave me a lot of tips.  He supported me a lot throughout.  He always responded to me even after the end of his shifts, until late at night when I had queries.  His support was really important to me. Without him I would not get the job.  I think he is the best person in your company.  I will always thank him.

Andrew Starmer-Allen is an exceptional recruitment agent.  He dealt with my job enquiry in ample timing and kept me informed every step of the way.  Even after being accepted for the position, he is still involved to ensure a smooth transition before my start date next week.  I couldn’t have asked for anybody better. I have even referred him onto a few colleagues.  Well done Andrew.  Keep up the great work, and thanks again.

My introduction to Compass was from a phone call from Andrew Starmer-Allen who very quickly organised two job interviews for me which I both received offers from.  I cannot fault the service and Andrew was extremely helpful & efficient.

Andrew has been amazing at finding me a job.  From our first phone call he was very eager to find out exactly what I am looking for in my new role and my past experience.  Putting my CV forward to the best jobs out there that would fit my experience and what the clinic’s requirements were.  Andrew was very good at keeping me up to date with interviews and giving me very detailed information both on the phone and via emails with what would happen at the interview and questions they may ask so I was fully prepared for my interviews.  He would call me prior to my interview to make sure I was prepared and wishing me all the success at the interview.

He has found me my perfect job and I couldn’t be happier.  I will definitely recommend Andrew to friends and will definitely call Andrew in the future should I want to change my job.

He is a credit to Compass Associates.

Compared with the majority of agencies, Compass Associates have by far helped me the most!  As a recruiter Andrew takes time to know you as an individual and to find the right job for you. before my interview I was very nervous, so he reassured me and prepped me in advance.  Andrews experience with helping people find jobs has now helped me find mine.  I found him very polite, positive and understanding.  If there is an award for best recruiter of the year it should go to Andrew!

Andrew Starmer-Allen was very helpful throughout, from start to finish.  Even though I work 9-5:30 he was contactable after hours and nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend for sure.
