Lee was extremely helpful and supportive throughout the recruitment process. He was always prepared to go out of his way and help where possible. I would strongly recommend him and his company to anyone seeking new opportunities

Logan Brown

I’ve known Lee for several years now and have worked with him on two employment opportunities. The most recent was for a position with a multinational company managing part of their global service business. The information Lee gave me at every stage was detailed, accurate and targeted – the advice prior to each of the interviews was invaluable. If you have a position to fill or are looking for a new challenge, Lee is an excellent person to talk with and discuss what you are trying to achieve – the advice will be honest and balanced – the information will be useful.

Andrew Cross

I have known Lee from the time he was a production manager at a paper mill and got in touch with him again when he contacted me about an opportunity in the UK several years later. I can honestly say that he was key in the negotiations with my present employer and helped out in my and my family’s transition to the UK and was very professional in handling the case. Without his involvement, I would not have taken on the role. In my role in the UK, I also utilized his services for high-end recruitment since he has a large network of contacts in the market and a good track record.

Lee filled 4 positions for me within the engineering/technical departments. His level of service was excellent ensuring that the whole recruitment exercise was completed efficiently in the time scale projected.
