I have worked with Phil Walker and Precision for over 5 years, both as a candidate for a Managing Directors position, and as a recruitment agency supplying suitable candidates for senior positions. Phil operates an extremely professional and competent recruitment company, who have always supplied extremely good candidates for all the positions that we have had available in our organisation. Phil himself has a great deal of Engineering knowledge, which is unique in the recruitment arena, as a result he can quickly identify if the person would be suitable for the role.
