I cannot thank Jonathan enough for all that he has done for me. He put me in contact with a fabulous firm that I would never have found on my own. Jonathan guided me through the interview process thoroughly which I was incredibly grateful for as it was my first interview in over 13 years! He gave me detailed feedback as soon as he received it and has kept in contact throughout my notice period to ensure this huge change for me ran smoothly. Jonathan is a really friendly and approachable person and genuinely wants to help you find the best job for you. He isn’t pushy and takes everything you say on board. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him if you are thinking of changing rolesBryony Fletcher Cloud Accounting Team Lead at Blu Sky
When I was looking for a change of firm, Jonathan was a fantastic help. From assisting me with my CV etc to finding a firm that was (and still is, two years later and counting) a brilliant fit, Jonathan was excellent. If I was looking to move firms again, he’d be my first phone call.Jim Wooton Semi Senior Accountant at GRANT HARROD LERMAN DAVIS LLP
