testimonials

Don't take our word for it...

  • You gave me a real insight into the company, the culture of all the personnel I was due to meet / be interviewed by, and tremendous real assistance in preparation for the interviews. The information that you gave me of the company was accurate and helped me make an impression, and you have a very pleasant demeanor and were very easy to speak to and deal with. Therefore, thank you for your help, it has been a real positive outcome for me.

  • We have been more than encouraged by the work that Jonathan Lee Recruitment has completed for the members of the EEF, their marketplace knowledge across a wide variety of engineering sectors and most importantly the strong professional culture that they work to and high levels of service they provide. We would happily recommend the Jonathan Lee Recruitment business to any engineering and manufacturing organisation looking to engage a professional, committed and quality consultancy to support their recruitment activities.

    Project Engineer
  • 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!

  • I've worked in generalist HR positions for over 20 years, across different industries and organisations. Recruitment has always been part of any role I have undertaken and in order to source high calibre candidates, quickly and professionally I only ever work with agencies that I feel are proactive, ethical and deliver results. Whilst in my position of Head of HR at Senoble, the EEF recommended Jonathan Lee. From day one I was impressed with their level of service, knowledge and professional standards. They work on maintaining excellent relations with both the company and candidates and I have absolutely no reservations in recommending the team.

  • Scott went the extra mile to help me take the next steps in my career. Really professional, supportive with relevant information during every step. Thanks Scott.

  • What you need when you are recruiting is someone who understands your requirements, who can put themselves in your shoes as they sift through the masses of CVs for the candidates that are appropriate for your needs. Anybody can throw CVs at a client, but very few can throw the right ones and the certainty that the skillset and cultural fit are aligned to the client’s needs. With Scott, you get someone who has the industry knowledge within Procurement & Supply Chain, he just gets it because he has done it. Other recruitment organisations should take a good look at themselves and understand you don't need sales people to recruit, you need subject matter experts who know what their clients are seeking. Would I use Scott again? Absolutely!
