They are quick and efficient dealing with queries, diligent in making sure that paperwork is up to date and always prompt in processing invoices! In short, I would have no hesitation in recommending Jonathan Lee to any client, contractor, or interim manager who is looking for a top-quality partner in the recruitment marketplace.

Creative Design & Styling

​​Jonathan Lee Design Services was an important part of the Class A phase of the DF91 interior development. Their speed, quality and professionalism were top class and they were a real joy to work with. We will work with them again.
