    Maintenance Manager
  • 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.
