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.

I have used the services of Compass Associates on several occasions. I have found the candidates sourced to be of a high calibre, the information provided to support applications to be comprehensive and the contact before and after to be excellent. I value the relationship built up with the team and welcome their input when looking to source candidates.

Thank you to Tom Sims for assisting me to find my new role.  Tom has been a great support, looking for the perfect role for me, he has listened to what I was looking for rather than pushing me into just any role. He has offered me valuable advice, when preparing for interviews, and ensured I had support when he was on annual leave from Compass.  Thanks Again

In the time I worked with Tom in the North East I found him to be professional at all times. Tom understood the importance of shortlisting quality calibre CV’s as opposed to volume submission.  He listened to the ‘essential and desirable ‘ specifications when discussing vacant positions and ensured I was kept updated with searches.
