  • 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.

    National Interim Membership Engagement Director
  • This time last year you helped me sort out some major issues caused by a contractor payroll service that incorrectly set up my limited company and VAT registration. Your information and input was professional and spot on. You assisted me again just before Christmas, I needed proof of income to finalise my house purchase, the same contractor payroll service charged me £30 and made major mistakes in the information they produced. Once again through one phone call you managed to sort out the problem the same day!! THANK YOU, Jonathan Lee Recruitment for doing a great job!
