testimonials

don't take our word for it...

  • 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.
