Who will train you?

Our dedicated Recruitment & Training Manager Natasha Bates, having spent the last four years with Precision as a highly successful recruiter. Together with the support of a worldwide recruitment training company and an external trainer (with over 20 years in our sector) we will train you alongside a small group of academy students in a purpose built academy.

You will be in the Academy for a whole six months, unlike some of our competitors who only train new recruits for two weeks to four weeks. This giving you the best grounding in all aspects of being a high achieving recruiter, daily support and coaching before you graduate into the wider business.

Weekends are yours

There is typically no weekend work or travel involved in what we do. You get to spend more time with your friends & family and enjoy outside of work activities you may be missing now.

Job growth is rebounding in every sector, your timing could not be better. If you have "business to business" sales experience, you may qualify. We will teach you the rest.

Vanessa - Trainee Recruitment Consultant 

'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. I also really enjoy the emphasis placed on mindset and goal-setting in recruitment - it's great to see all the employees pin pictures of their personal goals to the sides of their desks to keep motivation and focus levels high!'
