Ben Cotton has been a great asset in helping through my job search. Always professional, yet compassionate, I have not yet again been disappointed by Compass Associates as I already had successful dealings with this agency seven years ago. Ben went the extra mile to secure me an interview and I cannot thank him enough for his dedication and support.

Registered Manager

Working with Compass Associates has been such a positive experience. From the first time I spoke to Ben and explained my circumstances I felt that he really understood me and the role I was looking for. That said, Ben encouraged me to think outside the box to widen my options.  I know that he must deal with many, many applicants, but Ben has the knack of making you feel that it is just you that they are working with. It took a while to find me a job, but he never gave up. In the end it was Ben who found me the right job in the right location working for the right employer.  I can’t thank Ben enough for all his hard work and encouragement.

Registered Manager

I first worked with Ben 2 years ago when I was looking for a new challenge. At the time there were not many positions in my area that “ticked all the boxes”. In April, this year I found myself once again looking for a position of employment. Ben remembered our previous conversations and had a good knowledge of the role I was looking for.
I found it very easy working with Ben as I found him to be attentive, honest, and proactive to find me the right position.

Ben’s phone manner is always professional but there is also a real feeling that he is listening to me. His communication, whether it is by phone or email, has been efficient without bombarding me and it has always contained information and updates that were pertinent to the role that he put me forward for. I find Ben a very pleasant individual with whom I would highly recommend and happily work with again if needed.
