About Us

Sourcing talent on a global scale, we meet the needs of both multinational corporates and SMEs, utilising our network of candidates that are known to us, trusted, available and right for the job. We can supply single contractors through to entire project teams. We can migrate directly engaged contractors and consolidate multi-vendor supply chains to streamline administration and costs.

At Jonathan Lee, our contractors are part of our team. We find hundreds of assignments across a range of industry sectors, offering them flexibility and choice whether through limited, umbrella partners or working directly with our PAYE solution. As many of our consultants are specialists with relevant industry backgrounds, we pride ourselves on our in-depth understanding, insight and credibility necessary to identify the skills, experience and personal attributes required for difficult-to-fill roles.

We offer robust flexible workforce models, designed to clearly define the relationships and responsibilities of all parties up and down the supply chain. We take our responsibilities for compliance, risk mitigation and the ongoing welfare of our contractors seriously. We operate a strict ISO compliance audit process that protects all parties and meets the complex legal obligations in the contract/freelance sector and requirements of HMRC and others. Retaining the services of one of the country’s top legal practices, we stay up to date with developments in the contractor market, whilst investing significantly to keep our own team fully conversant as changes in legislation and best practice occur.

The dynamic and fast-changing technological landscape makes the contract or interim option especially attractive as companies plan for uncertainty. For businesses looking to implement Industry 4.0 technologies, the use of contractors affords the flexibility to take on specialists when there is deficit in skills within the business. We can provide expert guidance and advice throughout the planning and implementation stages, sourcing specialist roles such as designers, applications engineers, data analysts and programmers. Utilising expert contractors not only helps future-proof a business, but also negates the need to hire permanent staff for a 12 to 18 month project.

 

​Situated in the beautiful rural county of Bedfordshire, Bedford is the county town with a population of around 80,000.  Ideally situated on the Midland Main Line for commuting to major cities.  The train line to London and Brighton is operated operated by Thameslink, and express services to London and the East Midlands operated by East Midlands Trains, giving the location fantastic transport links and access.

With beautiful parks available for leisure time, if you enjoy nature, Bedford is a lovely place to live.  Both of the major parks are green flag rated, Bedford Park is the town's largest urban park and is located directly to the north of the town centre. The park retains many original Victorian design features, notably the lovely cricket pavilion and bandstand which are both still actively used. The second park, Priory Country Park is a large country park located to the north of the River Great Ouse in eastern Bedford. 

In the historic centre of the town lies St Paul's Square, home to the town's principal church, St Paul's, With its iconic spire that dominates the skyline, it was built on the site of an early Minster already established before the Norman conquest in 1066.  Construction on the present church began in the 13th century, but little remains from the original structure.  It  serves as the Civic Church of the Borough of Bedford and County of Bedfordshire 

Some of the oldest architectural remains in Bedford, including two monoliths are located at St Peter's Church, on St Peter's Street.
