Testimonial for Jonathan Lee Recruitment




Congratulations on your 39th anniversary. Always and still the benchmark in your field.

Julian Dench

Chairman of the Board, Novita Technologies LLC
Head of Global Automotive OEM Solid State Lighting, OSRAM



I have to write a few remarks about Jonathan Lee Recruitment's style of assistance and the information that you have passed onto me.

I have dealt with several other consultancies whilst seriously looking for employment over the past 6-9 months. The usual "assistance" that you get is advice that is periphery and can be gleaned from the company website and you get the feel that the consultancies are trying to make a role fit as it suits their targets rather than suits the individual. 

You gave me a real insight into the company, the culture of all the personnel I was due to meet / be interviewed by, and tremendous real assistance in preparation for the interviews.  The information that you gave me of the company was accurate and helped me make an impression, and you have a very pleasant demeanour and were very easy to speak to and deal with

Therefore, thank you for your help, it has been a real positive outcome for me.

Kind Regards

James Davies
Maintenance Manager  



I would just like to say a BIG thank you to Jonathan Lee Recruitment and James Tilly for getting me a great job. 
James was really good, communicative, professional and a pleasure to deal with. THANK YOU

Hi Gareth,

I would like to thank You and Jonathan Lee Recruitment for the perfect assistance given to me along my recruitment path to find employment.

A
s a Romanian, I was positively surprised about you and your teams’ enthusiastic approach.


The communication was perfect via e-mail and telephone.

The guidance you gave was second to none relating to my CV and experience. I received the perfect job description matches from your systems job alerts which I duly successfully applied to.

Overall, I'm very glad that, in less than a few weeks from our first contact, I’ve discovered and have been offered the perfect job.

Thank You Jonathan Lee Recruitment...The Perfect Team

Best regards,

Gabriel Braileanu
Maintenance Supervisor



Jonathan Lee Recruitment has been brilliant in finding me a new job. From applying online to the first day in my new job there has been a very personal feel about the way they work. As an ex-serviceman, it's quite a daunting process finding a job in the civilian world but with Jonathan Lee, it couldn't have been better.


My recruiter Gareth Simpson has had an open door policy with me throughout the application and I really felt like I could call him if I had any questions. He rang me on the day of the interview to check everything was ok and I really felt like his main concern was to get me the job. Small touches like a text on the Friday before starting my first day on Monday really makes you feel like you're the company’s main concern which is very refreshing compared to other recruitment companies I have dealt with.

I'd like to extend a massive thank you to everyone at Jonathan Lee, without their help and support I wouldn't have found myself in the job I am in today.

I genuinely can’t thank Gareth Simpson and Jonathan Lee Recruitment enough. From the first phone call to the start date of my new job the service has been excellent, so thank you very much.

 

Kind Regards

Matt Pates
Service Engineer



Jonathan Lee recruitment has been absolutely brilliant with the professional, friendly and down to earth way they have found me my perfect role as a maintenance engineer.

Thank you to all at Jonathan Lee Recruitment and hope your future is a prosperous one.

Project Engineer



I would like to say what a fantastic employee you have in Sarah Wilson-Frost. This time last year she helped me sort out some major issues caused by a contractor payroll service that incorrectly set up my limited company and VAT registration. Sarah’s information and input was professional and spot on.


Sarah assisted me again just before Christmas, I needed proof of income to finalise my house purchase, the same contractor payroll service charged me £30 and made major mistakes in the information they produced. Once again through one phone call to Sarah, she managed to sort out the problem the same day!! THANK YOU, Sarah and Jonathan Lee Recruitment for doing a great job.

Please pass my thanks to Sarah.
Many Thanks
Mike Newman
Engineering Contractor 



I just wanted to thank James Tilley and Jonathan Lee recruitment for the support and enthusiasm they have shown during the whole application process for the position at JLR.


It has really helped me a lot and made me wish I could work with people like you more often.

Kind regards,

Chris Poulopoulos
Electrical Engineer.



I would like to thank Jonathan Lee Recruitment and Gareth Simpson in particular for their patience and professionalism in helping me secure my new role.

Gareth supported me throughout my application and even coached me before my interviews. I even had good luck messages before my initial interview.

Gareth kept me well informed, returned all my calls and sought positive outcomes when required.

I would not hesitate to recommend Gareth and the team at Jonathan Lee Recruitment to anyone looking for a job.

Many Thanks and Kind Regards.

Denis Lazar
Maintenance Engineer 


Ray. You found a job for me 3 years ago at TMETC. Although I have now left the company having found a better opportunity, I wanted to express my heartfelt thanks as the last 3 years have been a completely enriching experience. I have had the pleasure of working with good people that cared about me and I loved it there. I managed to get support from many people who played a huge part in my promotion to Project Manager from Project Engineer.

It was the start of my career and you were one of the few people who gave me the small chance needed so I could prove what I am capable of.

I know this is not your usual email but I am grateful for all the things you and Jonathan Lee Recruitment have done and for the opportunities this role has given me.

I wish you and your family all the very best... THANK YOU.

Best Regards,
Kamakaris Georgios M.Sc.

Testimonial for Jonathan Lee Recruitment.

Having Googled 'HR in Peterborough', Jonathan Lee appeared and I duly logged into your website - as I have done numerous times with other agencies - but what a difference! 

I found the content to be highly professional, as one would hope, and the various written 'messages' about different aspects of the business - background, growth, testimonials from clients, and in particular your values - to be invigorating. But above all, I loved the video clip.

I have watched many similar 'productions' and they tend to come across as a slickly produced "promotion", but seemingly with very little genuine honesty and 'heart'. Your video was completely the opposite. Highly professional in its production - yes, but with real heart and real honesty. Having watched it, I actually felt inspired - something that I have not felt about an agency for many years. I can see why you have been so successful and why you have such terrific testimonials from you clients. Many congratulations!

Having worked with recruitment consultancies for a number of years I have found the experience extremely frustrating.

HOWEVER we have recently started working with Gareth Simpson at Jonathan Lee Recruitment and my opinion has changed.

He has really understood the challenges we are facing and provided strong practical candidates who are genuinely suitable for the positions offered with verification of their capabilities.

Recruiting candidates with the right skill set has been a huge issue for our business however Gareth and the Jonathan Lee team have made the process extremely easy and professional.

I would have no issue recommending them.

‘Thank you’ from a successful candidate recruited to a major blue chip Automotive Manufacturer.

Managed by Ed Roe, Recruitment Consultant of Jonathan Lee Recruitment.

Having elected to leave a restructuring UK manufacturing business after 30 years service. I applied for several vacancies which meant being contacted and dealing with a host of recruitment agencies.

Once my CV was accepted as suitable, I was contacted by Ed Roe of Jonathan Lee Recruitment, who guided me through the labyrinth of modern day recruitment. Keeping me fully informed and allaying my fears at every step of the process. Working with me to ensure I was fully prepared for every new encounter. The only company I found to give such a “full on” supporting role.

Ed gave regular updates both by phone (always following up when I missed his call) and Email confirmations of any new information or discussions. Both with myself and the employer.

Thanks to Jonathan Lee Recruitment and especially Ed Roes commitment, assistance and guidance. I was offered the role within 2 months of my initial application and will be continuing my career soon.

Successful Candidate comments on the recruitment process managed by Kate Law of Jonathan Lee Recruitment.

Having recently left HM Armed forces I had high hopes that my skill base would allow me to pursue a new career. Having applied for several vacancies I was contacted by Kate Law from Jonathan Lee Recruitment regarding a position with an internationally renowned prestige motor manufacturer.

Being unaware of the way recruitment has changed, Kate guided me through the initial CV sift, the on-line assessment and then a half day assessment centre. Kate provided me with advice and guidance throughout the process, keeping me up to date with progress and liaising with the employer when necessary. She updated me weekly by phone call and always followed up our discussions with an e-mail.

I was offered a position with the company within two months of my assessments and look forward to starting my new career shortly. I cannot thank Jonathan Lee Recruitment and especially Kate Law enough for their dedication, support and advice throughout my career search.
