About Justin: After completing a City & Guilds level 3 in General Engineering at College in 1992, I worked for 2 years with a Medical Devices and Instrument Company on a training scheme. This gave me an excellent grounding in manufacturing including product design and development.

Following from there, I moved into recruitment with PHDS, an engineering and technical recruitment business where I supported various industries including pharmaceutical, medical device, food and the process sectors. In 2005, Jonathan Lee Recruitment purchased the business and I transferred to the Essex office as a Technical Recruiter covering the same sectors and continuing to support long term customers.

Since 2005 I’ve been promoted from Recruiter to Recruitment Consultant and then to Senior Consultant. Coming up for 27 years in Recruitment, I still thoroughly enjoy it and every day is a learning day.

Away from work: I love my motorcycles! Riding my motorcycles, motorcycle maintenance, talking about motorcycles, looking at pictures of motorcycles and watching motorcycle racing (MotoGP, British Superbikes). My wife and I love exercise and living in the North Essex countryside gives us plenty of space to go running and long walks. We also have a son who’s 4 and he keeps us extremely busy!

At our Essex office we recruit for a wide variety of vacancies within the technical and engineering sectors with clients ranging from SME to multi-national size. We are adaptable to our client’s requirements.

My main recruitment focus is: Maintenance Engineering - Manufacturing, Project Engineering/Management, Laboratory Assessment & Accreditation and Technical/Engineering Business Development.
