Precision People has promoted Anand Kakkad to head of technical.
Anand joined Precision People, based at the Meridian Business Park, in September 2018 as a team leader of the Maintenance division. Within fourteen months he built the team from two to six consultants, taking new recruits into high performers, and as a result, was promoted to divisional manager of the Technical Perm team.
Director Phil Walker said: “Anand manages the team how most managers don’t; which is by empowering, leading, and coaching, whilst working the hard yards himself. He also takes the time to have an interest in his people’s success and well-being. This makes him the most successful manager Precision has seen.”
This year, under his leadership, the Technical team of Permanent & Contract recruitment has created six promotions, progressing two senior recruiters into managing consultants and building a team with them.
Anand said: “After working at three different recruitment companies, I can firmly say at Precision People, we do things differently. Every business strategy is about people development and achieving individual and business goals together as a family.
“The next steps and progression are at the forefront of every conversation with our recruiters and managers. Without the support of Precision People as a whole, and my record-breaking team, none of this would be possible.”
Phil added: “At Precision, we hold progression at the top of our people development, every consultant has clear steps with measurables to get to the next level in their career, reviewed with them monthly.
“With a record-breaking year this year, we are well on course to grow the team by double within the next three years to forty people. To achieve that we need to have the right culture that champions progression. Those that make it into the management roles needed will benefit hugely both in their career and personally with rewards that are unique to Precision.”
