Precision People launches bespoke training academy
Precision People has created a bespoke training academy.
The Precision Academy consists of a six-month training course based within a purpose-built room, includes a structured plan of training & activities to give trainees all the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to launch a career in the recruitment industry. The trainees are also supported along the way by a trainer and an additional external trainer who visits once a week.
Training & recruitment manager, Natasha Bates, said, “The Academy has been an amazing success so far, and I am incredibly proud of all of our trainees who’ve come a long way since starting, just a few months ago. Their determination and focused attitude have allowed them to make great progress, already making placements and receiving commision (sic). I have personally found the experience rewarding, learning new things every day about how the industry is changing.”
Managing director, Phil Walker, commented, “We have designed the Academy with the help of some of the most experienced recruiters and trainers in the US and UK. We’ve put together a robust, quality driven training system that is akin to how the professional environments of law would grow their talent. The six-month program is theoretical and practical applications of best practice that is way ahead of most of the ‘same old’ ways of doing things used by our competitors. We have centred the hiring process on the person’s ability to learn, understand and achieve the critical parts of being a professional recruiter, not what they have done in a previous job or how experienced they are. The whole company has embraced the new academy team, raising our overall standards and success in all areas of the business.”
