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 firstly cannot thank Ben enough for his assistance in helping me secure a new position, Ben has been very professional throughout the whole process, (even when I had a wobble) he never pressurised me into making a decision and always said that I had to do what was right for me.  Ben has kept me up to date with the process every step of the way and it has had me at ease with everything, Ben has been brilliant throughout and cannot thank him enough.
