testimonials

Don't take our word for it...

  • After suddenly becoming redundant from my job I started applying for jobs straight away. Upon seeing a job advertised by Jonathan Lee Recruitment I applied. I received a call within a couple of hours from an automotive consultant who arranged an interview immediately. After the interview the following morning I was notified that I was the most suitable candidate for that role. I am now in a full time, permanent position within 2 weeks of being made redundant. I highly recommend Jonathan Lee Recruitment due to its fast paced process of getting me straight back into employment. They kept me up to date and well informed throughout the whole process.
