What Clients Say

"You could go an entire career and not come across a recruiting talent like Jonathan. Jonathan recruited me for a role during his time at SPS International. One might be skeptical of a young recruiter like Jonathan at first glance, but over the course of the time that we worked together, he showed himself to be a star. I began to admire Jonathan for his diligence and his work ethic.


With an 8 hour time difference between us, Jonathan was available and engaged throughout the recruiting process with a level of care that is uncommon across the recruiting profession. He is the consummate professional and carries himself with poise, composure, and care for his clients. You will never feel like you're just another commission check for him. The best part is that he's still early in his career and growing at an impressive trajectory. Our interactions left an impression on me that shaped my own behaviour."
