Can you elaborate on the jumping? Not sure what you are trying to describe.

As in from the starting point when I was driving forward it seemed to pull back a little, there did seem to be a power issue like I was not getting full power like normal

Hesitation is the term we normally use for describing such symptoms.

Is the Malfunction Indicator Light showing?

Have the spark plugs and related components checked.

Spark plugs were only changed in the service few weeks ago

That is why you need to check it again. Repair work could have cause it or the wrong spark plugs used. It could be the ignition coils etc.
