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 and candidates we've worked with. 

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.

 “We're hoping to raise lots of money by consultants choosing to donate £10 for candidates they place in a new permanent job, plus also getting involved in extra fundraising days throughout the year.”

Jo Walker, Marketing Director

I would like to highly recommend Precision People for Technical Recruitment. I dealt with Jon Webster who clearly took the time to get to know my cv and matched my experience with the requirements of my new employer. As I had not been for an interview for quite some years Jon gave me good advice. Thank you Jon.


Emma has worked tirelessly finding brilliant candidates time after time. We're on 8 employed already and I can't thank her enough for her efforts. Superb communication and excellent assessment of the company's needs as well as the candidates she places for an interview too.

Jon Hall, Managing Director - Roche NDT services

Since joining Precision in August 2021 with absolutely no recruitment experience, I have been supported through every step and hurdle in my training. I have achieved a number of promotions since joining the company which has reflected in my progress - my confidence has grown massively. I feel grateful that Precision always encourages me to reach my next goal.

Emma Gilmore, Delivery Team

“Having not previously worked in recruitment, Precision Academy has been seamlessly paving the way for me to transition into a full 360 recruitment role through a well-thought-out, step-by-step approach. In addition to receiving one-to-one training support on a daily basis through on-the-job learning, we also have assigned days that we spend studying industry best practices with a recruitment specialist in an interactive, classroom-style, learning approach. Having been in training for just over 2 months, I have already made a number of successful candidate placements, have a growing client base of my own, and am now being supported by management in carving out my niche area of recruitment expertise. Overall, I really admire Precision's values and how we are encouraged to never compromise on integrity or quality in business.”

Vanessa - Trainee Recruitment Consultant

 “We’re delighted that Precision Recruitment has chosen to support Rainbows and we are looking forward to working with the wider team. With receive limited funding each year so we rely heavily on supporters like Precision, who help make sure that Rainbows can continue to be here providing vital support for life-limited babies, children, young people and their families across the East Midlands.”

Fiona Carlisle, Corporate Partnership Fundraiser

“I worked with Matt when ramping up Docue’s UK operations. He successfully sourced two
excellent in-house lawyers for our unique SaaS business. Our in-house lawyers contribute to
the content of our product-offering and so the search we asked Matt to carry out for us was
very bespoke and not the norm.

Matt worked hard and fast to enable us to fill these pivotal roles with top-quality legal talent
very quickly. Matt ensured he deeply understood the ins and outs of our business and the
requirements of these roles, and I believe this was crucial to the successful outcome which he
produced for us.

Some creative-thinking was definitely required from Matt along the way to achieve our
objective of hiring a fantastic UK legal team at speed within such a competitive market. He
found a way through and we were certainly impressed with his skills and commitment.
Matt possesses the commercial and entrepreneurial drive to get the job done. Straight-
talking, to-the-point, and always calm and professional. We certainly wouldn’t hesitate to
work with him again in the future, he’s a truly valuable resource for any tech business.”
