  • I would like to thank Jonathan Lee Recruitment for their patience and professionalism in helping me secure my new role. They supported me throughout my application and even coached me before my interviews. I even had good luck messages before my initial interview. They kept me well informed, returned all my calls and sought positive outcomes when required. I would not hesitate to recommend the team at Jonathan Lee Recruitment to anyone looking for a job.

  • 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!
