History

Compass Executives is a value-added service offering of Compass Associates which was formed in 2011 and founded by the Directors in response to an ever-growing requirement for executive level talent.

This entirely separate offering concentrates solely on executive level positions that drive organisations forward, including: CEO, CFO, COO, Chair, Trustee and Non-Executive Director roles.

Compass Executives work specifically in the health, social care, and specialist education sectors for the Private Sector and NFP Sector industries, focusing on Board appointments from Chair and CXO, through to senior management within the sectors. We work with clients ranging from Equity backed houses, Privately Owned enterprises, Advisory Services, Charity and Not For Profit organisations.

In June 2017, and again in June 2019 we were awarded the prestigious accolade of “Recruiter of the Year” at the HealthInvestor Awards, where we were recognised for the value of our service in the health and social care space.

Working only in health, social care, and specialist education – the most personable of sectors – we realise that marrying the values and aspirations of our clients with the right individual is crucial. To secure the best talent transparency is key, our processes are based on a collaborative approach working in partnership with candidates and clients alike to add value to the sector in both the short and long term.

Why just health, social care and specialist education?

Contributing to an industry that has a fundamental impact on everyone’s life is something we are proud to be associated with. Our expertise, knowledge and successful completed assignment track record lie within the health, social care and specialist education sectors, and cannot be beaten by any other executive search firm.

We have deliberately placed ourselves within our specialism in order to develop and maintain strong relationships in these specific sector spaces. Our clients know this is our 100% focus and rely on us for up to date industry insights, trends and concerns.

Having a 360° view point, although beneficial is only a springboard. Compass Executives are proudly immersed in the health and social care industry with up to date market intelligence, knowledge of merges and acquisitions and current government legislation.

We are regular attendees at awards ceremonies, seminars and conferences where senior health and social care executives come together to discuss current sector concerns; and have also hosted several Round Tables addressing the key issues facing leaders in the sectors.
