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.

Louise Orr

Operations Director

I recently had the pleasure of working with Jon Burke who was my contact at Compass Associates.  Jon recruited me for a Managing Director role.  Jon ensured I was fully conversant with all aspects of the role and the employing business and ensured I was kept up to date at all stages of the recruitment process.  His approach was warm and friendly but entirely professional. Jon communicated well at all times.  Jon demonstrated great skill at anticipating what a candidate might need to know at what can be an arduous time for both prospective employee and employer.  I worked with Compass Associates for my previous role and in my experience they match candidates to roles appropriately thus leading to high satisfaction levels for all parties.  Thank you Compass

Jon gave me detailed information regarding the post and supported me through the process of applying, interviewing and negotiating a salary.  Jon took control of all of the arrangements and relieved from any of the stress normally associated with changing roles.  My new role has been my next step in progression and it has been an easy transition, thanks to the support from Jon and his knowledge in expertly placing me in a suitable role.
