Candidate

​​From the start, the team at Jonathan Lee took the time to really understand our business and our culture. Throughout the relationship to date, they have provided us with industry and skills insights, advice on best practice and support with the interviewing and selection process.The partnership that has followed has proved invaluable not only in sourcing high-calibre candidates but in informing our organisation development and future plans. They work as an extension of our team and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any engineering or manufacturing organisation that is looking for a professional, committed and knowledgeable recruitment partner that will go the extra mile

Sian Williams, MS-RT

Candidate

​Jonathan Lee had a deep empathetic understanding of our business from the very beginning, and as we got to know them better, they became very knowledgeable, demonstrating this deep understanding of our manufacturing methods. We have found that their consultative approach has gone beyond just the recruitment of permanent and contract staff. Recruitment has been a challenge for us in the past and we’ve had invaluable assistance in this relationship. Going forward, I would say we have a true partnership here with Jonathan Lee Recruitment and that is the way we will continue.

Richard Evans, Mechatronic Solutions

Their advice and insight was invaluable in ensuring that the roles were specified correctly. The retained approach meant that they invested time and effort in ensuring the employer brand of SPE Swiftool was conveyed in a very positive and engaging way to their talent pools. I would not hesitate in recommending the team at Jonathan Lee Recruitment.

CSR

A night to remember!

​After a year's hiatus, the MIDLANDS AEROSPACE ALLIANCE black-tie dinner was back in full force on Thursday, and our very own Jason Cole (Sales Director) and Matthew Heath (Associate Director) were lucky enough to attend! The event held at the Grand Hotel, Birmingham and chaired by Andrew Mair, saw members of the aerospace and defence industry gather for an evening in the company of colleagues and partners. With leading companies well represented it proved an opportunity not to be missed.The 180+ Guests that attended were treated to a charity raffle, dinner, speeches and of course a chance to do some drumming!The MAA even arranged for Bridget Phillipson MP, Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury to be the guest speaker. Bridget shared her perspective on the role of manufacturing in the economy and investment in strategic industries like aerospace.The charity raffle in aid of The Air Ambulance Service proved a great success too, with prizes including hotel vouchers, golf days, kindles and lego!Jonathan Lee Recruitment was only to happy to donate a Hotel Chocolat – gourmet chocolate gift box prize to the raffle too!Jason Cole commented 'Thanks to the MAA for putting such a fantastic event together once again, it was brilliant to raise over £2000 for the Air Ambulance Service and renew acquaintances with old and new friends in the industry, especially after such a long time apart. Here's to the next one!'​Did you know? Jonathan Lee Recruitment has been supporting aerospace and defence recruitment for over four decades!
