I made use of Compass for recruitment of leaders and director level assignments. Every time they’ve shown valuable insight in terms of understanding my business and have been able to pinpoint the right skills for my business. Their recruitment process is effective and thorough, and they always check all requirements before beginning the process, so no time is wasted. The consultants used their exclusive network to find very qualified candidates and my personal consultant was able to honestly recommend who he saw as the right candidate for the job. It is this sense of trust and honesty that I really appreciate.

Compass showed genuine interest in creating a good match between me and the candidate. They analysed our specific business and market requirements to find candidates with the right cultural professional fit, who would be able to rise to future challenges. Throughout the process they maintained good momentum and always delivered to agreed deadlines. The tone of voice was direct and honest, which allowed us to create an informal, pleasant and effective process.

I was searching for a highly-specialised profile and was impressed by the quality of the candidates Compass presented. It was actually quite difficult choosing among all the good candidates, but I received really good counselling; I ended up choosing a candidate that turned out to be the perfect choice.

Through my professional career I’ve made use of Compass when recruiting several senior specialists and directors. I experienced transparency from the beginning right up to signing the new employee’s contract. They managed to apply my wishes to candidates with both high professionalism and a strong personality. I have to stress that they were very professional in how they handled the entire process; they really delivered every step of the way.

Compass invested precious time in getting to know everything about my business, its DNA and its strategy.

I’ve just completed two recruitment processes under Compass’ direction. I now have two strong candidates, who met all of our wishes and demands – and Compass managed to find them within a very short deadline. These are just the latest of several hiring processes I’ve completed with Compass over the past ten years. They’ve shown acute understanding of my leadership style and the specific culture in which we work. I will certainly continue to use Compass and recommend them to everyone searching for both professional and likeable partners in recruitment.
