Winbro's initial recruitment problems

In a niche industry, the competition to recruit talented and highly skilled staff is extremely fierce. As a consequence Winbro experienced great difficulty in sourcing the best applications by simply relying on recruitment agencies that had little or no knowledge of this unique manufacturing area. The result had been a frustrating waste of both time and energy.

Precision People's solution

The 'Precision process' is not rocket science but is based on common sense tactics, initially analysing all aspects of a client's requirements. In Winbro's case, Precision's Senior Engineering Consultant made a series of site visits to fully evaluate the culture within the company. Meetings with Heads of Departments took place with the sole purpose of producing a clear, accurate description of Winbro's perfect candidate' for each vacancy.


Winbro’s recruitment record has significantly improved, now achieving 80% of live vacancies successfully filled within an 18 months period; this is no mean task especially as the majority of vacancies involve rare skill sets.

Precision achieved this remarkable turnaround by employing its unique 'Talent Pooling' and Precision continues to work closely with Winbro, in this crucial area of recruitment and is both pleased and proud to play its part in Winbro's success in maintaining and sustaining rapid growth both in the UK and the USA. 

What Winbro say about Precision People:

"Precision has been our only preferred supplier for resourcing staff over the past three years. Their strong understanding of our business, our organisational culture and the calibre of people we are looking to hire, has made them key to our recruitment strategy in the UK as well as overseas. Where other agencies have struggled, Precision has been able to support our recruitment of high-quality candidates into going the extra mile in their search for high-calibre candidates and providing professional, pro-active and personal service. This has made it a great partnership and we look forward to continuing to work with Precision for the years to come." Human Resource Manager, Winbro Group Technologies.
