Client Testimonials
  • "The service from yourself and Compass Point was very professional, the main plus points were the proactive approach and the speed of response. The successful candidate has fitted in very well and has quickly become part of the team." - Cost and Financial Accountant Distribution/ Logistics Company, Suffolk

  • "I have recently successfully used Compass Point, in particular Paige, both as a candidate looking for a new role and then for recruitment in my new position. Paige was nothing but friendly, supportive and efficient and took time to understand what I was looking for in my personal search for a position and also from a business point of view whilst recruiting. Paige took time to understand the Company, its culture and the role which really helps in getting the ‘best fit’." - HR Manager - Wholesale Supplier, Suffolk

  • "Having recently used Compass Point, and specifically Annette, to fill a permanent vacancy I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to prospective clients.  Annette took the time to develop a good understanding of both the role and my specific requirements for the candidate, which was reflected in the quality of CVs provided and ultimately the candidate who filled the role.  Annette was personable and professional at all times and was a pleasure to work with. "     - Senior Commercial Manager - Refrigeration Company, Suffolk

  • "I wanted to find and take on quality staff across a multitude of disciplines; we have historically been faced with the dilemma of either trying to do it ourselves or dealing with the challenge of fending off the unsolicited attempts from recruitment consultants willing to throw bodies at a role. Historically we had a broad range of companies we worked with but of late have found that all of the best candidates were coming from Compass Point. We now always give first refusal to Compass Point after the team have taken the time to really understand our specific requirements and provide us candidates of the highest calibre, all of whom have added significant value to our company. I have no hesitation in recommending them."   - Operations Director - Engineering Company, Suffolk

  • "Paige was fast off the mark, quickly understanding what we were looking for and finding some excellent candidates. So good, that we were able to appoint someone within days." - Sue Phillips of SMART, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk

Candidate Testimonials
  • "I definitely recommend Compass Point Recruitment as the recruitment agency to go to when you are looking for a job.  They really do listen to what you are looking for and work their hardest to find you a job that you will be happy in.  All members of staff I dealt with are very helpful, friendly and really do their utmost to help you find the job you are looking for." - Eve

  • "Annette made the whole daunting process of searching for a new position really easy and straight forward, Annette kept in touch with me throughout the whole process, and thanks to listening to what I was after matched me to my ideal position, I would definitely recommend Compass Point." - Tracey

  • "I'd had a tough couple of years and I have hearing difficulties and following some time out of work I contacted Compass Point by chance. I've dealt with countless agencies over the years and really didn't expect them to be much different to the rest. Paige was enthusiastic and so welcoming. She gave realistic and confident responses to my concerns and tailored her marketing process to suit my needs, especially relevant to my hearing issues. Both she and colleague, Liv, did more for me in the two weeks following registration than almost any recruiter had ever done! They're honest and they genuinely care about their candidates. Three words .... Compass Point cares!" - Jacqueline

  • "I did not hesitate to forward your contact details onto my friend who is also currently looking for employment." - Candidate

  •  "I really just want to say a big thank you for the help I have received from you. I am signed on with two other agencies and there is no comparison. You have been professional from first contact and kept me updated with my application."   - Candidate

  • "Thank you for the email, new website now saved. Happy birthday to Compass Point. I've always been looked after and helped to the best of jobs available. Thank you, May see you all in the future." - Kirstie

  • "Having dealt with Annette in the past, via telephone only, approximately 5 years ago I finally had the pleasure of meeting her face to face earlier this year when I joined Compass Point. I was looking for a new challenge for my career in Bury St Edmunds having sold my house in Ipswich. I was extremely impressed with how well Annette got to know me on our first meeting and as a result she immediately had a client in mind to approach on my behalf. It was soon after that two consecutive interviews with this client took place and resulted in an offer being made to my delight. I accepted and started on the 17th March 2014. Annette is a credit to your company as well as being professional and efficient for which I thank her for this great opportunity that has come my way." - Kirsty

  • "You are the only consultant I've been in contact with who has made any impact at all. The industry has changed since I was last working in it...seeing it from the other side of the fence rather inspires a return to put some sorely lacking humanity into the process. You are the exception! Thank you." - Jenny

  • "My experience of seeking employment through Compass Point was very positive: Paige was very friendly during the induction process and created a sense of confidence that she would be proactive in finding me work. Very quickly she began to find potential leads for me and within a couple of days she had set up some interviews. I was impressed with the speed in which things developed and the type of jobs that she matched to me. After securing a job, whenever I visited the Compass Point offices the staff were always friendly and helpful. All in all a good experience." - Chris

  • "I just wanted to say a big thank you to Paige and the team at Compasspoint. After registering in 2017 I undertook a temporary p/t secretarial assignment for 7 months which allowed me to work around other commitments. Paige then actively sought further work and sent me for interviews when the role was ending, which resulted in a great company offering me a position. Paige then went on to negotiate working hours which have been my ideal requirements since returning to work from bringing up my family. It is much appreciated and it almost feels 'too good to be true'." - Jenette

  • "Thank you for being a great contact to work with. Compass Point Recruitment is definitely the best run recruitment agency in Bury St Edmunds." - Imogen

  • "Clare & Annette, thank you for your help, support and constant communication in my job hunt. I am pleased I have a new position!" - Shelley

  • "After long consideration I approached Compass Point looking for a new start and for new opportunities. Annette contacted me straight away wanting to discuss my thoughts and what I was looking for. Annette came across as very welcoming and understanding and we quickly arranged to meet up. During the meeting I was made to feel relaxed and very welcomed, I was at ease the whole time and found talking to Annette very easy. After the meeting I left feeling reassured, happy and had all confidence that Annette would do her best to find me what I was looking for. Two weeks later, Annette contacted me with details of a potential job and asked if I was happy to have my details put forward. A week later I had been for an interview and much to my delight had been successful. Annette stayed in contact the whole time and not once did I feel that I couldn’t contact her. She made the whole experience and process an easy one and I would definitely recommend her. I’d like to say a big "thank you" to Annette Rowland and the rest of the team at Compass Point Recruitment Agency, Bury St Edmunds. This was the second time that I had used the company and I would not hesitate to approach Compass Point again should I need to." - Lucy

  • "Thank you so much with helping me find this job! I found the over all service with Compass Point Recruitment very quick and efficient with finding me a job. I thought you was particularly very friendly, professional and listened to me well to understand what sort of job I would suit best. Every time I have spoken to any of your colleagues I have been impressed with everyone's service. Thank you once again." - Owen

  • "After meeting with you I found you to be more than a Recruitment Consultant, you are a professional with a personal approach and total commitment. Your support prior to interview certainly made me more confident and prepared for what can sometimes be a daunting experience. You are one of the most positive, energetic people I have ever met and I would recommend you to anyone seeking a permanent or temporary position."   - Pat

  • "I would just like to say thank you for putting me forward for the interview. I registered with Compass Point only 4 weeks ago and thanks to their efforts I have already found a suitable permanent position. I would be more than happy to recommend them to anyone looking for a job. I really appreciate your help." - Johan

  • Wow, fast and efficient service from Annette.  Within days of submitting my CV for a job I had an interview lined up and two days after that I had a job.  Annette is full enthusiasm and on the ball.  Much appreciated thank you. - Karen
