Compass Executives provided an excellent service to Octopus Healthcare in our recent executive search for both a CEO and FD for our Rangeford retirement communities business. Compass offered a comprehensive package including expert advice and sector insight in framing the job roles and positioning the opportunity to attract an impressive field of candidates. In an incredibly competitive sector for the best talent Compass Executives were able to bring the very best candidates to Rangeford and supported Octopus as an investor throughout the appointment and on boarding process. We are really ambitious for Rangeford and need the very best talent to optimise our investment and build the vision of an aspirational experience for customers; we believe with that with the help of Compass Executives that we have attracted a new executive team that is second to none in the retirement community space.

Working with Compass Executives on the Chief Executive Officer role for Rangeford was an enjoyable experience from start to finish. At each stage of the process they were professional, honest and highly communicative which created a positive impression of both Compass and Rangeford. Luke Osborne in particular was very quick to respond and update on progress and clear on the next steps. I found Compass to be a highly professional executive search organisation that understands the healthcare space intimately, which means when you talk to them, they truly understand the candidate aspirations and skills and can match to the relevant assignment. This creates the right outcome for all parties and removes unnecessary time and stress from the process. I would recommend them without hesitation.
