don't take our word for it...

  • I would just like to say a BIG thank you to Jonathan Lee Recruitment for getting me a great job. You were really good, communicative, professional and a pleasure to deal with. THANK YOU!

  • 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

    Head of HR – Senoble
  • 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!
