    Contractor
  • We chose to use Jonathan Lee as they were recommended by Make UK and I have been a client for over 2 years. Since our initial contact with Jonathan Lee we have never regretted using them. Our consultant (Oliver Smith) took the time to get to know us, our business, our requirements and provides us with excellent candidates. He is extremely professional, industry experienced and has proven to be invaluable as part of our recruitment process. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Jonathan Lee to anyone who is looking for an efficient, reliable and professional recruitment company.

    Bev Smith

    HR Manager
  • Having worked with a number of recruitment agencies over the past 10 years in my role, the team at Jonathan Lee are streets ahead of their competition.  They took the time to understand what Charpak do and how we operate in our market, they also spent time understanding exactly who we were looking for. They presented candidates that fit the role rather than just supplying CV’s. Pre-interviewing candidates, screening out unsuitable candidates and the level of contact with us to ensure they were on track has opened my eyes to how a recruitment consultant should actually work. They have successfully found us good strong candidates and we will now utilise their skills whenever we have a role within our organisation. If I ever find myself looking for a position I would have no hesitation in signing up with this team.
