Jonathan Lee Recruitment has affirmed its commitment to supporting the Armed Forces community by signing the Ministry of Defence’s Armed Forces Covenant.

This written and publicised voluntary pledge, which is tailored to our business, promotes that we are Armed Forces friendly, employ service leavers and work with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) to support service leavers and veterans. 

The Covenant was signed by Jonathan Lee, Chairman of Jonathan Lee Recruitment, and a Senior Military Officer on behalf of the Ministry of Defence. Speaking at the event, Jonathan commented: "We are extremely proud to be a signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant. 

"At Jonathan Lee Recruitment we are committed to supporting the Armed Forces community and I am very proud that we not only employ a significant number of ex-service personnel across our business, but also help servicemen and women leaving the forces more easily find employment and make a smooth transition into civilian life. 

"This covenant reaffirms our commitment to assisting and supporting the Armed Forces community into civilian life."

The pledge, which was drafted by Peter Heap, Principal Consultant at Jonathan Lee Recruitment, received outstanding praise from the assessor who commented:

“Many thanks for this comprehensive, and I would go as far to say potentially, best practice example for the Recruitment sector."

Well done Peter, you’ve most certainly exemplified our motto 'Solutions Through Understanding.'
