The team at Principal People are particularly high performing. While it is a fantastic achievement to bill £100k in your first year in recruitment; it is incredible that some of our team have billed over £1 million within 4 years of joining.
This was first achieved by our then Associate Director (now Director) Josh Huggins and when additional members of the team began to climb close to achieving this, Josh created our Millionaires Club to reward those who reach this impressive milestone.
Once achieving membership to Millionaires Club, the new member is:
- Awarded with an extra day of annual leave to enjoy a day and evening out with the existing members of the club (all existing members of the club get to enjoy this also, no matter how many times a new member achieves membership each year!)
- Gifted with £1,500 towards a gift or gifts of their choice, enjoying a luxury shopping trip with the existing members of Millionaire’s Club
- Given the opportunity to choose the location for a special meal or evening event, followed by a memorable night together to celebrate!
Millionaires Club currently holds 4 members, with a number of the team growing ever closer to achieving membership!

When did you join Principal People? I joined Principal People in July 2011.
How does it feel to be a member of Millionaires club? When I first achieved it, I was extremely happy as I was the first person within the company to ever achieve it. Now I really enjoy seeing other members of the team striving to and achieving this milestone!
What did you spend your £1500 on? A watch, new suit and cufflinks!
What advice can you give for anyone aspiring to be a member? Building trust and loyalty within a specialist space is key. However, to begin with, becoming an established billing team member should be the goal. Once you develop this, it is about making small incremental changes to your approach which can have a positive long term effect.
