Don't take our word for it...

  • The automation team at Jonathan Lee has taken the time to understand our business requirements, developing local relationships with the individual sites via visits to our locations to ensure the quality of candidates is of a high standard. 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.
