Jonathan's bio

After having spent over 20 years working for one of the largest corporate recruiters in the UK, predominantly operating within the technical disciplines and mainly supporting and setting up new businesses, I moved to Search and now run all of their Professional Services division.

This comprises of several key specialisms, mainly Legal, Accountancy and Finance, Human Resources, Logistics and Procurement & Supply Chain, Financial Services, Sales and Marketing, and Scientific. I also support the Energy offering which identifies, trains and outsources specialist Engineers into the Utility Sector. The geography I support is the whole of the UK.
