  • We chose to use Jonathan Lee as they were recommended by the EEF and have been a client for over 2 years. Since our initial contact with Jonathan Lee we have never regretted using them. 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.
