The Midlands-based recruitment consultancy has worked with companies and candidates in the transport sector for almost 40 years, developing a deep understanding of the skills needed to drive growth for the UK transport sector. Mark Bignell explains: “Transport is rarely out of the news these days as investment in new infrastructure, vehicles and smarter, cleaner technologies continues apace.

“The UK has a strong heritage and an excellent reputation globally in these sectors and needs highly skilled people to maintain its position as a market leader whilst delivering innovation and growth.

“Our business has evolved alongside the industry and has met the challenges of the changing needs of the market for permanent, contract and interim staff in product development, manufacturing, aftermarket and support functions.”

Jonathan Lee, Chairman of Jonathan Lee Recruitment adds: “Over the years, we have grown our portfolio to encompass all forms of transport. It requires a great deal of knowledge and experience to get this right and this is something that our teams have worked hard to achieve. As the much discussed skills gap continues to widen, we have decided to harness the full potential of the synergies in skills and functions across our existing sectors, bringing these together as the new transport division.”

Jonathan Lee Recruitment strategically partners with a range of organisations active in the transport sector including the Motorsport Industry Association, EEF, Made in the Midlands, the Manufacturing Hub, Midlands Aerospace Alliance, North West Aerospace Alliance, the Rail Alliance and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, sourcing skilled engineers and commercial specialists for leading manufacturers and suppliers across the UK.
