Making promises is easy but I believe that any promise should be backed up by a firm guarantee, so here's mine.
1. We use a Matching Grid to show suitability on keys to hire
2. Transparency of the positive and negatives on each candidate
3. Accuracy of key data such as salary, benefits, packages and reasons of leaving
4. Do what we say by when we say we’ll do it
5. Make sure the candidate matches their CV
6. Ensure the candidate is fully briefed before an interview
Should I break any of these promises I will give you a 25% discount on the fees we have agreed if you feel it appropriate. No quibbles; no doubt.
With almost two decades under our belts, we're extremely proud of the level of service we bring to every search. Check out our latest testimonials from recent clients we've worked with.

Dom Barraclough, Managing Director, Finch Consulting
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.

Engineering encompasses a range of fields. Our team are well-versed in finding the perfect roles for candidates looking to work in sectors including HVAC, Machinery Manufacturing, Sheet Metal & Fabrication, Structural Engineering and Electrical & Mechanical Engineering.
As engineering covers a wide range of different industries and sectors, the qualifications you need will depend on where you wish to specialise. Some roles will require a degree in an engineering or related technology subject, while some roles may simply require a relevant national certificate, diploma or City & Guilds qualification.
Although permanent engineering jobs bring the security of a long-term role and income, there is also a high demand for contractors and temporary shop floor within engineering. As a contractor, you will be employed for a set time scale, and paid at a daily rate – which generally works out as a higher wage than permanent staff.
Regardless of whether you’re looking for a role within fabrication, machining, mechanical, production or electrical engineering, the same types of soft-skills are in-demand by employers. These skills include problem-solving, good communication & interpersonal skills, adaptability, and flexibility to change.
