Tom has worked with me over the last few months to secure me a new role.  Tom has been constantly in touch ensuring I was supported every step of the process.  He was very friendly, open and honest and made me feel very confident in my interviews.  Nothing is too much trouble for him to ensure I didn’t have to worry about minor details because he dealt with everything.  I would recommend Tom Sims for your future roles.

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.

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.

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.
