Jon has been extremely supportive and a true professional when supporting individuals who are looking for work or companies who require posts filled. He has a good understanding of the healthcare market enabling him to be responsive to any given staffing need of an organisation.

He has always been professional, friendly and effective, and takes time to understand the needs of the client prior to sourcing suitable candidates for any given role.

Jon was efficient and reliable with information return.  He sourced relevant jobs for my experience and demonstrated in-depth knowledge in all areas of the social care sector when discussing possible roles.  This was very important to me and it gave me the reassurance and confidence I needed, knowing that Jon’s knowledge and experienced meant he knew exactly the role I was looking for which fitted my skill base.

Jon kept me informed at all points including pre interview processes and following on from there, which was also important to me as it gave me another point of contact between changing roles and the potential new employer.

I would fully recommend Jon for all those reasons but also his professionalism, and personable approach.

I have worked with Jon now for several years and actively seek his assistance in helping us fill key positions Jon has great tenacity and is a completer finisher; and is very good at keeping me briefed and updated on progress.

I have also recommended Jon to other colleagues and I know they share my views.

I have had the contact details for Jon for more than a year maybe even two.  Whether I am employed or not Jon will occasionally contact me to see if I am interested in a role he has. The one thing that stands out for me is that he doesn’t pressurise me or continually email me with email shots when I am employed. When I am looking for work the one thing that I know for sure is that he is very responsive. He is well prepared so that he already has all the answers to hand and he clearly knows the companies he recruits for very well. I also like the reassurance he gives and how he negotiates with his client to get you the best offer.  I would 100% recommend Compass Associates based on my experience of working with Jon Burke.
