I cannot thank Ben Cotton enough for all of his help and advice.  He has been very prompt, professional and engaged in assisting me in securing a new work role.  He is polite and friendly to speak to and I am very grateful for all of his efforts.

I would like to write about Ben Cotton, who has guided and supported me through the process of acquiring my new post with BUPA healthcare. He has advised me every step of the way and kept in constant contact. I have had some quite major issues going on in my personal life that have been extremely stressful and without Ben, I do not think I would have been successful.

He has been professional, courteous and positive throughout the whole process and was genuine in his concern and wish for me to succeed which I am sure contributed towards my being so.  You should be very proud to have him on your team, I will always be grateful for all his help.

I have never worked with a recruitment consultant before, always securing my own employment and when I was approached by Ben Cotton.  I was a little sceptical as I didn’t even realise I was actively looking for a new job.  Ben however was so diligent, he has found me the perfect position and been there with support through the whole process. He has kept me well informed about how the application and subsequent offer of employment were being managed and has always been available to offer advice or to chase things for me if they have been needed.  I am now very excited and looking forward to the next step in my career thanks to Compass Associates and thank them for their transparency and kindness.

I have been very impressed and comforted by the professional and personal way Ben Cotton has assisted me in first attending interviews then accepting the offer of a new registered manager’s post. This is the first change in job I have undertaken in 25 years and Ben has been very supportive and encouraging throughout this experience.  Thanks Ben!
