October marks the second anniversary of the EEF Advantages Partnership with specialist consultancy, Jonathan Lee Recruitment. Since the launch of the partnership, Jonathan Lee Recruitment has assisted many EEF members across England and Wales with access to a broad base of technical, engineering and manufacturing talent.
With manufacturers struggling to recruit skilled individuals to meet their business needs, EEF’s strategic alliance with Jonathan Lee Recruitment has proved to be a valuable partnership. Over the course of the partnership, the recruiter has successfully placed candidates in permanent, contract and interim positions from shop floor based technicians, technical and commercial specialists to mid-level management and executive appointments.
Charles Garfit, Membership Engagement Director at EEF, says: “Jonathan Lee Recruitment was exclusively selected as an Advantages Partner to support EEF members. Over the past two years, their specialist knowledge, experience and position in the market as a premium service provider has helped members save money and grow their businesses.”
David Woakes, Group Business Development Manager at Jonathan Lee Recruitment says: “We’ve accomplished a great deal already during our partnership. The alignment in our aims, purpose and approach has only strengthened the collaboration. Ultimately, both Jonathan Lee Recruitment and the EEF strive to give our manufacturing peers the best footing from which to drive UK manufacturing growth.”
“While attracting specialist talent is a challenge, our consultants, many of whom have trained and worked as engineers, possess unrivalled technical understanding and real-world experience, actively delivering the skills EEF members need for continued success. We look forward to continuing to work in close partnership with EEF to help its members meet the skills challenges they face both today and in the future.”
