Don't just take our word for it... find out what our clients and candidates have to say about us.

Pharmaceutical Recruitment Agency

​​I have been working with Jonathan Lee now for about a year, and in that time, my experience has been overwhelmingly positive. They are quick and efficient dealing with queries, diligent in making sure that paperwork is up to date and always prompt in processing invoices! In short, I would have no hesitation in recommending Jonathan Lee to any client, contractor, or interim manager who is looking for a top-quality partner in the recruitment marketplace.

Fiona Humphries, Director and Lead Consultant

​​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.

Ashley Anderson, Senoble
