Job Description

Do you want to wake up every day with a genuine passion for your job?

Do you love talking to people, developing relationships and feeling good about what you do?

If so, this could be the role for you!

We are currently seeking an outstanding Trainee (absolutely no experience required) who has a genuine drive to succeed and develop a brand-new career in recruitment.

This is a rare opportunity to gain full, dedicated training and support and become part of our incredibly high performing, supportive and welcoming team.

Established almost 30 years ago, our business has grown from strength to strength under the leadership of three passionate, hands on Directors who lead by example and reward hard work and commitment with incredible team incentives. (We just hosted our monthly lunch club on board a boat with five-star dining and drinks).

Think team breakfasts (just because), interest free loans to help you onto the property ladder, weekly golf and badminton clubs and Friday night drinks; this is truly a place where it’s easy to love what you do.

Principal People have grown by 600% over the past 5 years, quadrupling our profit within that time frame. We made 11 promotions last year alone and are fortunate enough to work with over 50% of the FTSE 100.

We offer a lucrative commission structure with no initial threshold to get you off to the very best start and immeasurable earning opportunities as you progress (none of our Senior Consultants are earning less than £65,000).


The successful Trainee Recruitment Consultant will be responsible for:

  • Proactively marketing the business and recruitment services across a range of methods including business development phone calls, networking events and client meetings (to encourage your client base to come to you when they have a Health and Safety vacancy)
  • Actively working on job vacancies, identifying and securing candidates in partnership with the resourcing team
  • Interviewing prospective candidates and introducing those you feel passionate about to your clients
  • Making mistakes - we want you to make a lot, quickly so that we can develop and mentor you to become the most successful you can be!
  • Working in a fast-paced environment, where no two days are the same. We push each other to be the best we can be, every day. From helping each other to succeed professionally, to stopping to do 10 squats together every hour – we have a wonderful team around us
  • Proactively building relationships with your clients and candidates on a daily basis, providing excellent service at all times (that comes easily when you genuinely love where you work, right?)

For your hard work and dedication, you will be rewarded with:

  • No threshold on your commission for the first 3 months with the business – commission structure of up to 27.5% commission thereafter
  • Realistic commission in your first year from month 3 onwards, based on our star performers: £300 - £900 per month from 3 - 6 months within the role, rising to £750 - £1400 per month over the course of the following 6 months
  • Amazing team incentives; it’s all about working hard and playing harder!
  • Industry leading training and development, tailored to your level of experience to ensure the very best start with ongoing development as you progress within the role
  • Outstanding benefits including wellbeing allowance, private health cover, industry leading pension, monthly lunch club, high performers personal luxury holidays and complimentary dry cleaning
  • Beautiful, brand new offices in Farnborough with parking on site
