I was contacted by Ben to discuss my job requirements. I was impressed the way he talks on the phone and seems he is very polite and patience in his job.
He was trying to update my CV on the phone and he is very efficient.  The next day I received a text that one of the care provider has interested and willing to see me.  That’s the start and everything goes well. Not only was I successfully provided to receiving the home manager position for me.  From start to finish I have a pleasant experience especially from Ben. He has been friendly and professional and he spent length of time to ensure my transition was positive.
I could contact him at any time during out of hours. In my opinion Ben is an asset to company.  I don’t have enough words of gratitude and recommend with all my heart to Compass Associates they will do their best for you. I wish to say a massive thank you for providing me with this opportunity.

I found Ben to be very friendly and helpful.  Throughout the process of applying for my new position up to receiving an ‘Offer of Employment’ Ben kept me informed.  He was easily contactable and he always got back to me when he said he would.  Overall I was very satisfied with his assistance and support.

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 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.

I have had the pleasure of having Ben as my recruitment consultant for the past couple of months.  During that time Ben has made himself available whenever I need some guidance, support or questioned answered.  I must say I am very impressed with the service and support I was getting from Ben.  He listens very carefully and ensures that all your questions are answered almost immediately and he also address problems very effectively.  He kept in touch with me throughout the whole process of my transition.  He is very easy to work with and he seems to have a great bond with myself.  From the get go, Ben has made me feel at ease in talking to him either by phone or email, I felt comfortable in discussing any concerns or grey areas with him.  Ben comes across as a very down to earth guy who is always looking to go the extra mile for his client with a high level of professionalism.  He made sure that I was informed every step of the way of the progress.  Ben for me is a great guy, who does his best for his clients.  I am confident that he consistently receives outstanding reviews and I would recommend Ben to anyone looking to progress in their job role.
Ben keep up the great work you are doing and I am sure all your clients are as satisfied as I am.
