As a new customer to any sort of recruitment agency I didn’t know what to expect. Right from the very first time I spoke to the consultant Grant I felt at ease and felt that he would be able to place me well if it was possible. It took less than 2 hours for him to sort out a possible new employer and set up for an interview for the following day.
He contacted me on every occasion throughout the process and I felt he always had my best interests at heart. I would recommend Compass Associates to all my friends and family if they were in need of getting a job within the care industry; Grant would be my first port of call.
I have found Compass Associates a very professional company who have acted on my behalf in an extremely efficient way. Grant has been very thorough, has kept me informed at every step and I couldn’t have asked for more support.
I would definitely recommend anyone to Compass if they are looking for a new position or if they are seeking to recruit.
I would like to pass on my thanks for the wonderful support I have had from Grant in finding my new role. Grant listened carefully to what was important to me and matched my requirements almost immediately. I had previously looked at this nursing home but had been put off by the CQC report. Grant explained the situation and how the new manager was improving care so I was happy to attend the interview. I could have easily missed this excellent opportunity. Pete Griffiths was very supportive through the interview process when Grant was away. I have also worked with Sophie Taylor regarding my current role and found her to also work to the same high standard, in fact she had noticed my CV back online and called me, hence the contact with Grant. This shows great attention to detail. I would recommend Compass to anyone who wants a thorough, caring recruitment agency.
I found Grant to be well informed and professional, I particularly admired that he had knowledge and understanding of the current job market situation, he made me feel at ease and was successful in securing me an interview within the parameters that we had discussed. Altogether a nice understanding manner, professional attitude, maintained regular contact and did as he promised. A job well done. Thank you.
I was contacted by Compass Associates and have been liaising with Grant Melin regarding the position. He has kept in regular contact with me, keeping me updated at all stages of the process. Grant has been so helpful and understanding and felt my frustration when my DBS check got stuck in the system! He is very professional and polite and I can genuinely say he is an asset to the company.
