Jamie is a very highly qualified recruitment consultant and the best out there. I would like to thank Jamie for his advice, support and help throughout the recruitment process from start to finish. He helped me prepare for the interview which increased my confidence and enabled me to secure the job I really wanted. He was always available to talk when I needed help or had any questions. I would recommend Compass Associates to anyone looking for a career in healthcare and recommend Jamie to be their recruitment consultant. Thank you so much Jamie, I appreciate everything you have done for me!

Suman Nassar

Theatre Practitioner

Jamie is perhaps the only recruitment consultant I have had the pleasure of dealing with. He is personable, passionate, professional and more importantly transparent. He makes himself available and calls when he says he will. He kept me in the loop from start to finish and really went the distance to ensure I knew that he believed in me securing the position and made me feel as if we were working as a team.

What a pleasure to know there is a recruitment professional who knows what he is doing. I would count myself lucky to have someone like Jamie on my team. I have a feeling he will become a focal point in the recruitment industry if he continues the way he is and it is a real shame there are not more Recruitment Professionals like him out there, they should definitely take notes from this young man! If he happens to reach out to you, whether you are an employer recruiting or a candidate searching for the right career move, count yourself lucky and give him a shot, you will not regret it!  Thanks again Jamie, you are a real pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with you in the future!

I would like to thank Jamie and the entire team at Compass Associates.  Jamie has been incredibly supportive and pro-active in the role, a pleasure to work with, made the process seamless and has been able to ‘fight my corner’ in negotiations.  I would recommend Compass Associates to anyone even considering a career change, and, if the need should arise they will be the first port of call for me in the future.

Theatre Practitioner

Compass Associates took me by surprise when I was first contacted by them. A subtle but effective approach intrigued me wanting to simply know more.  Better still, the more we conversed it enabled me to understand more about my personal ability and furthermore my career aspects.   Jamie Barker in particular made a conscious effort to not only provide me all the information relating to the role, he very confidently supported and mentored me throughout the entire recruitment process. He was, and still is, a sheer delight to work with. Jamie’s honesty and professionalism together with his industry knowledge makes him a credit to Compass Associates and I can only see his talents continue to support and guide others to achieve their next career step.  Thank you, Jamie, for making the entire process just so simple and being on hand whenever needed. Wishing you the best of luck!
