From the start, the team at Jonathan Lee took the time to really understand our business and our culture. Throughout the relationship to date, they have provided us with industry and skills insights, advice on best practice and support with the interviewing and selection process.  

The partnership that has followed has proved invaluable not only in sourcing high-calibre candidates but in informing our organisation development and future plans. They work as an extension of our team and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any engineering or manufacturing organisation that is looking for a professional, committed and knowledgeable recruitment partner that will go the extra mile.

​Jonathan Lee had a deep empathetic understanding of our business from the very beginning, and as we got to know them better, they became very knowledgeable, demonstrating this deep understanding of our manufacturing methods. We have found that their consultative approach has gone beyond just the recruitment of permanent and contract staff.

Recruitment has been a challenge for us in the past and we’ve had invaluable assistance in this relationship.

Going forward, I would say we have a true partnership here with Jonathan Lee Recruitment and that is the way we will continue.

They work as a part of our internal team and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone that is looking for a recruitment partner who will go the extra mile to provide professional, knowledgeable and credible talent services.

Jonathan Lee has been our master vendor for recruitment since 2011. They have a very capable team and the level of technical competence amongst them is a key differentiator for us; the fact that many of them have worked in industry means there’s a high level of understanding - they talk our language and use this knowledge to project an informed and comprehensive picture of TMETC when acting on our behalf.

The efficacy of the MV model in highlighting opportunities for improvement in our own operating processes, particularly with regards to finance and purchasing, has also exceeded my expectations. They also stay at the forefront of advanced engineering and technology skills. As our needs have evolved, they have been able to provide advice on the market and to source the right candidates quickly.
