I have worked with Tom when recruiting for candidates for a variety of posts and the quality of the candidates has always been exceptional.  So when it came to changing my own career he was the first person I approached and true to form, Tom found me some excellent positions, supported me through the process and I landed my dream job.

I was first made aware of Compass Associates about six weeks ago as I was looking for a new post. During this time my consultant Thomas Sims has been outstanding from arranging the interviews to offering ongoing support, whilst in my new post. Every aspect of his role was truly professional throughout and he was always there to offer reassurance or answer any questions that I had. I have now been offered a new role as a service manager and undoubtedly could have not achieved this without Tom’s help or support. I would certainly recommend working with Compass Associates and would do again in the future if required.

Tom is a very professional but approachable gentleman.  He was very reassuring and offered a lot of support.  I felt very comfortable talking to Tom and he put me at ease leading up to and following interview and successful job offer.

I am happy with the excellent support I have had during the process of interview and communication about the post I have applied for and Thomas Sims supported me all the way and gave me confidence to go forward. I have the reassurance that Thomas will support me right through the process of starting my new job. I would recommend to anyone looking for new career opportunities to go to Compass Associates.

I have been extremely impressed with the professionalism and quality of service we have received from Tom Sims in our search for a Manager for a new service that we are opening in Edinburgh.  From the beginning Tom has made the process smooth and has ensured that everything has been completed effectively and without any problems. He has liaised between me and the candidate throughout the whole process and has ensured when information is required it is obtained in a timley manner. I would have no concerns recommending Compass Associates and in particular Tom to fellow professionals in the future.
