What our customers think

With over 85% repeat business, it's always good to hear what our clients, candidates and contractors have to say about us.


​​When leaving the forces, I was put into contact with Jade via old colleagues she had aided during their resettlement. I was worried about what my next move would be, but making me feel comfortable straight away, she informed me about possible roles she thought I would be ideal for. I ended up applying for a role in Afghanistan, Jade helped me through every step of the application process, and I was never waiting too long for any information I would ask for. During my contract, Jade would give me any information I required, answered any queries I had, and made sure my leave dates and flights home were set in stone. Having Jade dealing with the things behind the scenes made everything run a lot smoother while overseas and gave me a lot less to worry about.

​​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.
