I want to relay my sincere gratitude to Jon Burke. I was sad and very disappointed as my employer made me redundant in the height of the pandemic. Jon called me as he saw my CV online. He was so calming and reassuring and he set me up for various interviews. He secured me an interview for 16th July at 19:00. I drove home from Barnet London to Kent, feeling very sorry for myself that I had worked all day and still faced an interview at 19:00, but it was the best thing I did.

Jon coached me, reassured me and was there ALL the way. Being a manager for several years, I am so used to being on the other side of the interview panel. Jon was just fab all the way, he is a absolute asset to your team. Thank you Jon!

Shelley Russell

Director of Nursing

Jon was extremely professional, efficient and kept communication lines open at all times. He worked very hard on my behalf and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
It was a pleasure to work with him to secure my position within Trinity and I made sure I mentioned to Mike at Trinity how impressed I was with the service received from Jon.

Andrea Morgan

Head of Business Development

Jon’s approach worked really well for me. He grasped quickly the needs of the organisation across a range of roles and supplied excellent candidates. He is responsive without being pushy and is most definitely my go to recruiter now.

Karen Biggs

Chief Executive

I have used Compass twice now to help me find new opportunities. Jon Burke was fantastic both times, keeping me fully informed on all available and potential posts. He made the process very easy from start to finish and was always positive and professional in communications with me and companies I was interested in. I would highly recommend using Compass.

Louise Orr

Chief Operating Officer

I would highly recommend using Jon Burke from Compass Associates for recruiting senior manager positions.  I have worked with Jon several times for senior Priory positions and have been very pleased with the appointments made from the selection of candidates put forward.  Jon has worked very hard to fill some difficult positions and worked closely with me to make sure Priory secured the right person.  His communication is very good and keeps the candidates warm during the process to reduce losing candidates before interview.  I would recommend Jon to other companies who have senior management vacancies.
