Lyndon Pryce – Marketing Manager

“Having previously worked with both marketing agencies and larger organisations, it was clear from day one that S Jones was the right choice for me.

The company balances the close-knit team feel of a smaller organisation with the R&D, client roster and capabilities of a much larger organisation. S Jones is a family business in both name and spirit.”

Sarah Green – Sales Manager

“I’ve grown tremendously since joining S Jones in 2012 as an Internal Sales Coordinator. In just two years, I was promoted to Team Leader. After this, I was promoted to Assistant Sales Manager before landing my current role as Sales Manager.

I’m a testament to what happens at S Jones when you have a willingness to learn and take on responsibility. What’s great about S Jones is the investment and support they give you.

When I first joined, I didn’t have much management experience, but I have been nurtured by an amazing team who have always helped me challenge myself and, in doing so, to reap the rewards.”

S Jones have been an extremely helpful company, from the day we first enquired to the day the transport company lowered our containers into place. Their customer service has been excellent throughout and they’re pricing was very competitive.
