Charlie Curtis

Deputy Home Manager

I am extremely please with all they help I received from Compass Associates, whilst looking for a new position they where very helpful, finding positions matching the criteria I was looking for, they managed to get a contact for me which included additional courses included and the pay I was looking for. After the interview they remained supportive, explaining what the next steps had to be and communicating between me and my new employer. I found their service polite, friendly and effective and I am very grateful for all their help.

Ben Cotton was quite frankly amazing to work with. I cannot fault his enthusiasm and professionalism. Ben found me a job that quite honestly seems too good to be true, as this home is everything that I believe in and its nice to know that homes like this do still exist. Ben was very supportive throughout the whole process from finding out about my job needs to calm some very big nerves before my interview. Ben kept me posted with where I stood after the interview also. Ben did a lot of the hard work and it felt like all I needed to do was turn up to the interview, Ben certainly has some very wise words of wisdom and he is an asset to the company he works for. Ben can I just say a huge thank you for all you have done for me and I am forever grateful.

Stephanie Swierzbinski

Deputy Manager

Incredibly fortunate to have worked with consultant Ben Cotton who maintained great professionalism, openness, honesty and commitment in communicating clearly and swiftly throughout the process to get this contract to work in the best interest of myself and my now employer.  I could not possibly ask for more from the Compass team who always answered the telephone and communicated messages efficiently always.  I very much appreciate all your effort and hard work in securing me this role, negotiating the salary and working hours and chasing up my referees. That cup of tea awaits whenever you decide to pop in and see us in the home.  You did it all Ben. Thank you.
