I have recently got my new job as an Area Manager via using the services of Compass Associates and particularly by working with Chris Burgess. He was extremely helpful in supporting me to find a new employer that would meet my development needs. Throughout the whole process, Chris maintained highly professional approach and was very responsive and efficient at all times.

Highly recommend using Chris’ services to any professional in the Health and Social sector and I would certainly do so myself if ever needed to reconsider my current employment.

I have known Chris for a few years and unlike some other recruiters, he has always kept in touch.  He networks well across the sector, always seems to have ‘his finger on the pulse’ and demonstrates this in his sector knowledge.  Chris is highly personable, has integrity and always strives to get the best outcome for his clients.  I have no hesitation in continuing to work with Chris as he always strives for the best.
