New Client Testimonial

Masson Appointments Logo

“Masson Appointments was introduced on our PSL over 4 years ago. After meeting Tessa she explained how she runs her recruitment business and how she differs from the other agencies. This was immediately evident from the first time we worked with Tessa, she has an extremely personable, professional and bespoke approach for her clients. Tessa goes the extra mile to ensure she doesn’t just know the vacancy inside out, but also ensures she fully understands the company culture and additional benefits which is extremely important in placing quality candidates. Tessa has supported us in times of high-volume recruitment, assessment days, specialist vacancies, reference background checking and providing market insight when required. Employees placed by Tessa have always provided great feedback regarding Tessa’s recruitment process which is always a pleasure to hear. If you are looking for a Recruiter who truly understands your requirements, listens and delivers every time I would highly recommend Tessa at Masson Appointments.”

Recruiter Profile

I’ve just taken part in a survey hosted by and after answering some questions, this confirms how I work.  I am not interested in the numbers, my business is about quality and getting it right.  So, companies find dedicated employees who will stay and develop.

Back at Gatwick


I launched Masson Appointments in 2003 in The Office Building on Gatwick Road, Crawley.  However, after a few years being closer to home, on the South Coast, I have made the decision to return, to where it all started.  This is because I have a strong client base in and around Crawley, London and South East so, by being more central, client demands can be met faster and with a larger catchment of candidates.

Mental Health First Aid at Work

Healthy people are happier, more engaged and more productive. Employers across the UK are acting now to support the wellbeing of their people and create mentally healthy businesses.  Stress, anxiety and depression are the biggest cause of sickness absence in our society. Mental ill health alone, is responsible for 91 million working days lost every year.

The Centre for Mental Health has found that mental ill health costs UK employers an estimated £34.9 billion each year – the equivalent of £1,300 for every employee in the UK workforce. Broken down, that’s £10.6 billion in sickness absence, £21.2 billion in reduced productivity, and £3.1 billion in replacing staff who leave their jobs for mental health-related reasons.  According to the Centre for Mental Health, simple steps to improve the management of mental health in the workplace will allow employers to save 30% or more of these costs – at least £10 billion a year.

So, there is exciting news, that today (Thursday 17th Jan 2019) the issue of Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace will finally be debated in Parliament.  Luciana Berger of Labour, Norman Lamb of the Lib Dems and Johnny Mercer of Conservatives are sponsoring the debate and more than 60 MPs have supported the debate, triggered by the online petition of

“I stand with #WheresYourHeadAt demanding more should be done to protect mental health. Today parliament is debating a change to law which would mean ALL workplaces make provision around #mentalhealthfirstaid.

Make it compulsory to have a mental health first aider at work #wheresyourheadat

A trained Mental Health First Aider in your workplace can start productive conversations about mental health, be a role model for how to manage mental health, promote greater understanding of the importance of mental health, and play a significant part in ending stigma and discrimination around mental health in the workplace.  Upon completing the course, students will become certified mental health first aiders in the workplace and can help colleagues with a mental health issue receive the support they need to recover or manage their symptoms. Both public courses and workplace training are available.
