Jonathan has the ability to see the bigger picture working for sustained long term growth, whilst still achieving short term targets. He is extremely driven, loyal and focused. At a personal level Jonathan has also been a pleasure to work with.
I first worked with Jonathan in my role of Head of Analysis at Telewest (Virgin Media). Jonathan was leading a significant account to bring in permanent IT resource into the organisation at a time of major change. I was impressed by Jonathan’s knowledge, professionalism and dedication. He listened to what I need, understood that time was something I did not have and above all gave me options. A consummate professional I would have no hesitation in recommending him.
I’m really cautious about making recommendations on Facebook as all too often they’re simply reciprocal “pats on the back”. In this case however I am more than happy to endorse Jonathan and his outlook and commitment to work and the results that he creates. Jonathan genuinely makes the effort to remain close to both his client and his candidates. In a business environment that can sometimes be ruthless he also demonstrates a rare skill – that of truly listening. Do I enjoy working with Jonathan and does he always seek to “make a difference” – yes on both accounts.
Jonathan and I work together on an events programme called “We Make SharePoint Beautiful” (now called Provoke) www.mandogroup.com/latest and I have been continually impressed by his professionalism, focus and passion for his role while still maintaining a sense of fun and enjoyment in what he does. Highly recommended.
I have known and worked with Jonathan for a number of years now and have worked with him for the past year. I always feel confident when I give a role to Jonathan that this will be effectively worked on by himself or a member of his team. Jonathan is always efficient at liaising appropriately with the line mangers in gaining all the pertinent information for the role. Even when we are struggling with the role he is happy to make recommendations and send alternative candidates. I can also trust Jonathan to carry out ad hoc pieces of work for us such as bench-marking and am reassured that he will make the correct approaches in gaining an understanding of William Hill as a business and the IS department. Coming from a strong background in IT it is always reassuring when Jonathan understands the skills of some of our more technical roles which I think gives him the edge over some of our other IT recruiters. It is always great to have a friendly voice on the end of the phone to deal with and I genuinely enjoy working with Jonathan.
