  • You found a job for me 3 years ago at TMETC. Although I have now left the company having found a new opportunity, I wanted to express my heartfelt thanks as the last 3 years have been a completely enriching experience. I have had the pleasure of working with good people that cared about me and I loved it there. I managed to get support from many people who played a huge part in my promotion to Project Manager from Project Engineer. It was the start of my career and you were one of the few people who gave me the small chance needed so I could prove what I am capable of. I know this is not your usual email but I am grateful for all the things you and Jonathan Lee Recruitment have done and for the opportunities this role has given me. I wish you and your family all the very best... THANK YOU.

  • Having recently left HM Armed forces I had high hopes that my skill base would allow me to pursue a new career. Having applied for several vacancies I was contacted by Jonathan Lee Recruitment regarding a position with an internationally renowned prestige motor manufacturer. Being unaware of the way recruitment has changed, you provided me with advice and guidance throughout the process, keeping me up to date with progress and liaising with the employer when necessary. I was offered a position and look forward to starting my new career shortly. I cannot thank Jonathan Lee Recruitment enough for their dedication, support and advice throughout my career search.

  • Even though Jonathan Lee were relatively small at the time, we chose them because they were very professional, committed, technical capable and knew about the automotive industry and manufacturing in general. And it turned out to be a very fruitful selection because they recruited 178 of the first people to join the company, basically ALL the engineers and first level of management and it enabled a very capable engineering base to be established from the start so a significant thing. What Jonathan Lee provided to us was technical knowledge, cultural and personality fit and working with Toyota is not always easy. They were a significant part of the successful start of production and ramp up for Toyota Manufacturing UK, and I’m very grateful!

  • I was contacted Jonathan Lee Recruitment, who guided me through the labyrinth of modern day recruitment. Keeping me fully informed and allaying my fears at every step of the process. Working with me to ensure I was fully prepared for every new encounter. The only company I found to give such a “full on” supporting role. Thanks to Jonathan Lee Recruitment.

  • After suddenly becoming redundant from my job I started applying for jobs straight away. Upon seeing a job advertised by Jonathan Lee Recruitment I applied. I received a call within a couple of hours from an automotive consultant who arranged an interview immediately. After the interview the following morning I was notified that I was the most suitable candidate for that role. I am now in a full time, permanent position within 2 weeks of being made redundant. I highly recommend Jonathan Lee Recruitment due to its fast paced process of getting me straight back into employment. They kept me up to date and well informed throughout the whole process.
