  • This time last year you helped me sort out some major issues caused by a contractor payroll service that incorrectly set up my limited company and VAT registration. Your information and input was professional and spot on. You assisted me again just before Christmas, I needed proof of income to finalise my house purchase, the same contractor payroll service charged me £30 and made major mistakes in the information they produced. Once again through one phone call you managed to sort out the problem the same day!! THANK YOU, Jonathan Lee Recruitment for doing a great job!

  • Regarding the team at Jonathan Lee, all I can say is top drawer...information that flowed from the very first moment of my interview to the contacted position of myself and company. I will miss the faultless administration regarding my contract and be paid on time every time.

  • I just wanted to thank Jonathan Lee Recruitment for the support and enthusiasm they have shown during the whole application process for my new role. It has really helped me a lot and made me wish I could work with people like you more often.
