Compass Point Recruitment is celebrating 21 years in business, alongside the launch of a new corporate image and website – and a significant increase in the flow of job vacancies in the region.

The Bury St Edmunds-based company, which specialises in sales and marketing, secretarial, PA and administration, engineering, industrial, accountancy and HR recruitment, says activity has increased markedly as the economy has shown signs of healthy recovery.

Managing director Rebecca Thurlow: “It is true to say that Compass Point is celebrating its 21st year in the business at a time of more activity in the market. Businesses have been through some challenging times during the last decade and companies have understandably restructured.

“The good news is that things are very different now – employers are looking to strengthen their teams, gearing up for a busier time ahead. This is a positive indicator that there is more confidence about and much more optimism in the future.”

She added: “Focusing on delivering local candidates for local businesses has been a key element in our success. Our role is changing as we are being challenged to deliver candidates with complete skill sets – and relevant experience in their given sector - who can make an exponential difference to the way a business operates.

“Excellent candidates are finding jobs very quickly, so clients are having to be decisive with their recruitment otherwise the best candidates are being placed elsewhere.”
