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.

  • I have been working Jonathan Lee for 9 months on a contract based in Rainham Essex. At the beginning my consultant 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.
