Our benefits

The culture our team have nourished is the most important factor to the health of our business.

We are incredibly fortunate to have such a high performing, hardworking team who do everything they can to exceed our candidates and client’s expectations. Recruitment can be very tough and is a demanding job, therefore it is critical for us to give back to our team. It is not just about your basic salary at Principal People, but also our industry leading commission structure which reaches up to 27.5%! Our Consultants earn double the national average of a Recruitment Consultant, in fact, 79% of our Consultants earn within the top 10% of the UK’s population.

When you are earning great money in a job that you love, it can often be the little things that make all the difference to boost you even further.

Following an engagement survey during which we asked for everyone’s input on the benefits they would like to be rewarded with above and beyond their salary packages, we implemented the following benefits menu, all of which you benefit from as a Principal People employee.

Following a recent engagement survey, we renewed our benefits package with the following additions:

Holiday incentive

As commonly available across many recruitment agencies, we have a companywide incentive this year for an annual trip abroad. This is an excellent opportunity to show our gratitude to our incredible, high performing team and make the most of some time in the sun together! This companywide trip will include every single member of our team, from our incredible support team through to the company Directors.

A little unique however is the personal holidays we award to our top four performers. Our top two Consultants, top Resourcer and highest contributor from the support team will be treated to a personal, luxury holiday for themselves and their significant others, with the top prize being £4,000!
