don't take our word for it...

  • Once again, I just wanted to say thank you for all your support so far with our Head of Credit Risk role. As an agency recruiter for many years my expectations are naturally very high and you always deliver good candidates with an exceptional CV layout which stops me from having to ask multiple questions about salary, skills or location. I value your professional and warm nature in comparison to the aggressive and obtuse way other recruiters speak to me. It goes a long way and is appreciated.

  • Jonathan Lee Recruitment has been brilliant in finding me a new job. From applying online to the first day in my new job there has been a very personal feel about the way they work. I'd like to extend a massive thank you to everyone at Jonathan Lee, without their help and support I wouldn't have found myself in the job I am in today. From the first phone call to the start date of my new job the service has been excellent, so thank you very much.

    Electrical Engineer
  • I have been working Jonathan Lee for 9 months on a contract based in Rainham Essex. At the beginning Matthew helped me through all the legal documentation and insurance requirements to be able to undertake the assignment and we have been in regular contact throughout. The assignment itself is great and I am glad to have found this through Jonathan Lee. I would and already have recommended Jonathan Lee to my friends and colleagues to use in the future.
