Associate Director: FinanceSpecialising in Automotive, Transport & Future Mobility, Advanced Technology, Aerospace & Aviation, FMCG

About Jamie: ​I’m a BA (Hon) Business Studies graduate from University of Leeds and have worked with Qualified Accountants as a Finance recruiter for just over 18 years now.  Initially I focused on the Financial Services sector in London, before relocating to the West Midlands in 2015 and joining a well known regional recruitment firm.  I joined Jonathan Lee at the end of 2021 to launch a Senior Appointments focused Finance recruitment division.

In recent years I have gravitated towards the Senior Finance end of the market, working on a mix of exclusive contingent and retained assignments hiring No.1 and No.2 in Finance level appointments, with Large Corporates, SMEs, PE/VC Backed and family owned Businesses. Many of these Businesses are Midlands based manufacturing, Aerospace, Automotive, FMCG and Technology sector firms. I am looking forward to expanding the coverage in these sectors at Jonathan Lee.

Away from work: I’ve always been passionate about sport, football being my first love, but also cricket, athletics, tennis and golf. These days my priority is towards my two young daughters, but I do manage to squeeze a round of golf in every now and again, at my local course in Stratford upon Avon.

​I'm skilled in recruiting for the following positions / sectors: Finance & Accounting - Senior Appointments
