  • The partnership we’ve developed has become invaluable. Not only has the team provided a full-service supply of contract and permanent staff through their managed services brand, but thanks to their talent management expert consultancy and coaching services, we now have bespoke recruitment management processes in place and senior managers who are equipped to support our talent acquisition plans. We’ve developed a true partnership, one I now would not want to be without.

  • Regarding the team at Jonathan Lee, all I can say is top drawer...information that flowed from the very first moment of my interview to the contacted position of myself and company. I will miss the faultless administration regarding my contract and be paid on time every time.

Our consultant 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.
