Don't take our word for it...

  • I'd just like to take an opportunity to relay my thoughts to you regarding Tom Duckett and his professionalism during a recent successful job application & interview he coordinated for me. Tom and I spoke last year regarding a job. Unfortunately, on that occasion I was unable to attend the interview as I was out of the country myself. When this contract came up again, Tom got in touch again and set up my application, CV update and subsequent interview; at all times, Tom kept me informed regarding process and updates quickly as they came in to him. I had never met Tom until the day of the interview. I have to say, he is a credit to Jon Lee recruitment, a consummate professional and a pleasure to engage with. Please pass on my thanks to him from me please, a massive 'BZ' (Royal Marine term for a job well done) to him for a job well done.
