Dan Peace


Trainee Consultant – Engineering

Skilled resourcer searching and looking for the best talent within the engineering industry. Specialising in the recruitment of technical and engineering professionals from technician and engineer level to senior managers and directors across all engineering disciplines.



1) What made you choose Kingston Barnes as an employer?

I came from a sales background and was looking for a company which would help me transfer my current skills in to the recruitment industry. Having met with James and Justin, their work ethic, drive and the goals they had in mind was something that I wanted to be a part of. I felt like this was the perfect opportunity to get in to recruitment and to join a growing business that wants everyone in it to be a part of the success.

2) Why did you choose a career in recruitment? Where does your passion/drive come from?

I could have gone down various career paths however I decided to choose a career in recruitment because I felt the characteristics you need to be successful in recruitment are similar to the ones that I have, being confident, ambitious and being rewarded for your hard work and going above and beyond.

3) What interests you about engineering? Where does your passion/drive come from?

If I’m being honest I fell in to engineering recruitment, for me the recruitment process in general is relatively straight forward and follows a structured, straight thinking process. However, I have fallen on my feet being part of the engineering team as it is a very interesting market to recruit in, so many different aspects to the market and variations within, every day is different and every candidate is different as well.

4) When you are not recruiting, what do you do?

Outside of work I have many hobbies such as football, playing golf, going to the gym and staying healthy. I also love writing poetry, as Oscar Wilde once said “To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.”
