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.
