Don't take our word for it...

  • Even though Jonathan Lee were relatively small at the time, we chose them because they were very professional, committed, technical capable and knew about the automotive industry and manufacturing in general. And it turned out to be a very fruitful selection because they recruited 178 of the first people to join the company, basically ALL the engineers and first level of management and it enabled a very capable engineering base to be established from the start so a significant thing. What Jonathan Lee provided to us was technical knowledge, cultural and personality fit and working with Toyota is not always easy. They were a significant part of the successful start of production and ramp up for Toyota Manufacturing UK, and I’m very grateful!

We have found that their consultative approach has gone beyond the recruitment of contract and permanent. Recruitment has always been a challenge for us in the past and we’ve had invaluable assistance. Going forward – we have a true partnership here with Jonathan Lee Recruitment and that is the way we will continue.
