What our Clients & Candidates are saying

Attention to detail, communication, listening to our needs are simple things to do but so many don’t get it right, well I can assure Jon does and that makes him really easy to do business with. 10/10 Jon thank you!

Joby Mortimer

UK Sales Director, Budweiser Budvar

Jon is a fantastic matchmaker with a great eye for fit between client and candidate and has supported my career moves successfully. He brings an attentive, genuine warmth to ‘recruitment’ which many others fail to achieve and is well both respected and connected within the industry.

Tracy Southwell

UK Sales Director, Barry Callebaut Beverages

From time to time we have put Jonathan to the test in terms of tight deadlines and he has always come through. If you are looking for a recruiter who can offer you that truly personal one on one service I can not recommend Jonathan highly enough”

Head of Wholesale, Barry Callebaut Group
