Furthermore, Jonathan Lee has attributed a member of its Client Services team to act as a senior level contact for Knapp. This ensures there is a high-level of pro-active engagement with us as a customer not only in the traditional recruitment process but also in areas that can indirectly contribute to our business relationship. Should anyone be looking for a recruitment partner with in-depth industry knowledge in automation that operates in an ethical, partnership-based manner I can highly recommend the team at Jonathan Lee.
