Employer Testimonials

A few testimonials from our sensational clients:

"We recently conducted an executive search for a HSE Director, I found the support of Principal People in this task excellent. They were focused on our specific requirements and took the time to understand our business, our culture and  our team dynamics, to ensure any candidate would not only meet our requirements but also succeed. The Principal People team are supportive and responsive in their approach, I would recommend them for any similar search."

HR Director - Fuel Distribution Organisation

“I found that you provided me with a good spread of personnel and their CV’s and believe that all of them had great potential and probably could have taken up the post but as with any sort of interview process it is often that intangible things that make the difference not what is said or written down. I would have no hesitation in recommending PP to anyone.

Again very happy with what you did for me and keeping me informed and up to date.”

Head of H&S - Leading Demolition Contractor

"Principal People have once again delivered high calibre candidates for interview ticking all of the requirements for both personality and attitude as well as technical expertise.  The service received is always friendly, efficient and very organised.  Recruitment nightmares are taken away and the process becomes a pleasure.  I would recommend them to anyone looking to recruit."

Safety, Sustainability and Compliance Manager - UK Renowned Rail Organisatoin

Principal People and Zac assisted me in my recruitment needs and offered a first-class service from beginning to end. Zac’s professionalism shone through from the start and he very quickly gained my trust and commitment to work with him. Zac was very knowledgeable and able to answer any questions I had. He always met his promises and communication was fantastic throughout. At every point, Zac ensured that I was supported and informed. By the end of our interaction, not only was I thoroughly impressed but have since recommended Principal People and Zac to friends and family”

Business, Safety & Security Manager - A Principal Retail Organasation

“Principal People provided me with a first class service from beginning to end and after they had provided me with a solution to my Health and Safety need. Having previously reached out to a number of ‘Health and Safety Specialists’, it became quickly apparent that Principal People were truly one of the main Health and Safety Specialists. I have since used them to recruit within my Health and Safety team and apart from one member of staff; Principal People have placed my entire team of Advisors”.

Health & Safety Director – Leading Financial Services & Property Management company

"I recently used Principal People for the first time to help recruit for an important role. We were specifically looking for candidates that not only had strong EHS & Facilities knowledge but who also possessed the characteristics to fit into our culture. Tom understood exactly what we were looking for and was able to present some excellent candidates. We successfully filled the role in good time and the service was always professional. I would be happy to recommend and if we ever need to recruit for this type of role again I would elicit the help of Principal People."

HR Manager - Major UK Manufacturing Company

“Principal People provided a very good shortlist of candidates for our Head of Health and Safety position. We saw three candidates in total and all of the candidates were appointable however one did stand out who fit the bill very well. Principal People understood what we were looking for quickly and more importantly, managed to submit CV’s within the very tight timescales to which we set. The successful candidate has now been with the university for over 2 and a half years now and we are pleased with how she’s progressed and she has done some very good work for us. She has really moved us on in terms of our level of Safety.”

HR Director – A leading UK University

“We worked with PP to recruit a H&S professional at short notice, this included resourcing immediate short-term interim cover whilst recruiting a full time Health & Safety Manager. For both of these positions PP were professional and efficient, this is reflective of the wider number of PP staff I worked with on both assignments. The pre-recruitment discussions and framing the roles worked well in defining exactly what we needed for the recruitment brief for the permanent role. They clearly have a very well connected specialist database to draw from and were able to deliver from these connections

“I have recruited three Health and Safety Managers through Principal People at various sites across the UK.

They took the time to meet with me and truly understood my requirements. Following this, they were able to provide an excellent shortlist of candidates for both of our posts and in doing so, filled the vacancies in a very timely manner. I will be happy to use their services again the next time I recruit into my team. "

Head of IMS - International Furniture Supply Company
