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.

 

​Coventry is a city in central England and is famed for its medieval heritage and in more recent times for being the hub for the UK automotive industry.  Heavily bombed during WW2 due to the preponderance of factories and industry in the area, it has risen to become a vibrant city, providing a home to two excellent universities, Coventry University and the University of Warwick.  

Conveniently situated on the main train line from London to Birmingham, it has excellent transport links, served by the M6, M42 and M40 to the south.  It is well known for the medieval Coventry Cathedral, which was left in ruins after bombing in the 1940s.  The new cathedral, built in the 20th-century and in a more modern style, with abstract stained glass, stands beside it. 

Around the corner you will find an excellent centre of culture at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum which includes paintings of the infamous local heroine, Lady Godiva. A statue of her, naked on horseback, is nearby in the central shopping area. 

Coventry is also home to top class sport with WASPS RFC now playing their home games at the Ricoh Arena north of the city.  The arena was built in the 2000s and hosts major concerts and music events, exhibitions and shows.  In the city centre, the Belgrave Theatre is well known and boasts an excellent programme of shows and plays.  

Coventry also hosts a number of fantastic festivals throughout the calendar, ranging from food to music and art to sport.
