Recruitment specialists move into new Agri-EPI Centre home

The engineering and technology recruitment experts have taken up office space at the state-of-the art facility, which is located on the Harper Adams University campus, as part of the company’s continued growth plans.

Telford & Wrekin Council’s business support team, Enterprise Telford, has worked closely with Jonathan Lee Group to help them source a new base for their office which meets their requirements and will enable them to strengthen links in new sectors.

The Agri-EPI Centre exists to bridge the gap between the people creating innovative new agricultural technologies and those who benefit from them. 

It was established as part of the UK government’s agri-tech strategy to develop, fund, and commercialise new agricultural technologies and develop relationships between researchers, start-ups, investors and farmers to bring the latest innovations to reality.

From IT and infrastructure, artificial intelligence, electrification, renewable energy, big data through to autonomy, automation and robotics, the Jonathan Lee Group team works hard to keep up to date with the latest innovations and find people needed to support Industry.

Talent management solutions and design engineering services are now a common requirement across many sectors and the Group’s core mission is to deliver solutions that help people to succeed and organisations to flourish, contributing to a better future for everyone.

Grant Nisbet, Director of Jonathan Lee Group, said: “We feel excited to be joining such a prestigious network and feel confident that having a permanent presence at the Agri-EPI Centre will give us a great opportunity to be part of an evolving and innovation centric market space. 

“With the world of engineering, manufacturing and technology transforming and with change continuing at pace, we have adapted to meet the challenges of finding people with the right digital skills to support the future of UK businesses. 

“We look forward to increasing our exposure within the agricultural engineering and robotics sectors. 

“We already have specialist consultants who live in the Telford area so it made sense to explore this opportunity and after a positive response from the Agri-EPI Centre team, it was an easy decision to make.”

Enterprise Telford offers businesses fast, responsive and bespoke solutions to help them achieve their business goals.

Councillor Lee Carter (Lab), Telford & Wrekin Council’s Cabinet Member for Neighbourhood Services, Regeneration and the High Street, said: “The Agri-EPI Centre is a fantastic base and we were pleased to support Jonathan Lee Group with their move.

“A centre like this brings together the very best in agricultural technologies and businesses from different sectors.

“The Jonathan Lee Group has a strong track record in quality recruitment this new home will ensure the Group are well placed to support businesses with their recruitment needs – helping them to go from strength-to-strength in fast-paced environments.”
