We engaged Principal People to help recruit our UK&I HSEQ Director. I was especially impressed by the attention to detail and service we received from the team
You have done an outstanding job finding our new global head of HSE. We are delighted with the outcome and I can thoroughly recommend Principal People for your senior HSE talent
We recently conducted an executive search for an 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 exceed them. The Principal People team are supportive and responsive in their approach, I would recommend them for any similar search
