Jonathan Harper - Managing Director, Premier Placement Services

Jonathan Harper

Managing Director

Just short of 30 years’ experience in the recruitment industry, Managing Director Jonathan puts customer service excellence at the heart of everything that Premier Placement does. Since founding the business in 1996, his ethos has always been to ‘place the right person for the job’ rather than just placing ‘anyone that happens to be available’. He firmly believes that this is the key to the success of the business. We are only as good as our last placement are the words that Jonathan believes sets the company apart from others. His approach to providing unrivalled customer service, support, supplying the most talented candidates for each position and developing on-going relationships with both candidates and clients remain the core values to the business.

Russell Lunn - Senior Driving Consultant

Russell Lunn

Sales Director

Russell joined Premier Placement in 2017 having been in the recruitment industry for a number of years.  Working previously in manufacturing, transport and distribution as a senior manager, part of his responsibility was to deal with staffing requirements and rely heavily on the services of a recruitment agency.

Premier Placement certainly was an eye opener for me within the recruitment supply, they showed me how recruitment should be done. The whole process and the ongoing compliance is unbelievable.  The customers here have been with Premier since its inception and that’s testament to the service offerings it provides. 

 Now an ambassador for the company my role is to meet key decision makers within organisations.  Knowing and believing in our core values and exceeding our customers expectations makes me very proud to be part of this business.

Craig Hammersley

Newcastle Industrial Division Manager

Craig is a very experienced recruitment professional having worked in the recruitment industry with Premier Placement for nearly 20 years.  Managing our busy industrial division at Newcastle, he helps clients avoid the devastating effects staffing issues can cause.

“I have experienced recruitment from both sides of the fence having held a senior position within the logistics & distribution industry. I fully understand the need for quality, reliable workers who are able to add value to an organisation.”

Matching the right candidate to the right job is an everyday obsession, something very few recruiters get right.  With detailed interviewing, character assessment, skills testing and candidate referencing, you would be surprised how many recruiters can get this so wrong!

I’ve worked with Premier Placement Services for 12 years in temporary industrial and driving roles, and have built up a great rapport with the team. I like the fact that they don’t treat you like a number, instead they treat you as an individual and with respect. I’ve been offered a number of full time roles over the years for clients that I’ve worked with on a long term basis, but for me I like the variety that temporary work brings and I get to meet some great characters along the way.
