Client Testimonials


Providing Exceptional Candidates

"I have always found Principal People have a very personal approach with regular contact to determine my ongoing needs. I have found them to be very detail oriented around the brief allowing them to provide me with exceptional candidates."

- Head of Safety  


Taking Our Time to Understand You

"I recently appointed Principal People to help recruit for numerous positions covering Health and Safety, an Environmental and Sustainability Advisor and most importantly an Associate Director - Environment position. I found the staff to be very professional, spending time to understand our business needs and the type of individuals who would integrate well within our team. Their professionalism and drive to find the right candidate for each role enabled our recruitment strategy to be delivered on time. I would recommend and use Principal People in the future."

- Group SHEQ Director

Candidate Testimonials


Instrumental to Success

"Principal People was instrumental in matching my competencies to those expected of my next employer. They proactively ensured that my next employer and I understood what we needed from each other, helped with the interview arrangements and since the contract was signed, continued to support us both. They also invited me to a CPD event hosted by PP on Business Partnerships, to enable me to meet with my next employer and other organisations working in the same sector. I would highly recommend their professionalism and dedication to providing the best service."

- Sheila, Health and Safety Manager at Lewisham Homes


Consistent Communication

"I would like to say a big thank you to Principal People. I was being made redundant in my previous job so I looked on the PP website, as I have used them before and they are really great at helping you find a role in the Health, Safety and Fire sectors. They contacted me regarding a role which would go on to become my current role. In the build-up to the interview, they were in regular contact with myself, offering advice and going through interview techniques which I feel helped me immensely when interviewed. If anyone is looking for a new job then type in Principal People and see if they can help you."

- Lee, Fire Risk Assessor at Citation Fire and Electrical 


Making a Positive Difference

"Supporting the next generation is something I am passionate about, as a profession we have a really important job to do that done well makes a positive difference. I was matched through the Safety4Good mentoring programme with an up and coming professional currently working with a law firm, so somewhat different from my current work in construction - but that does not matter – the job is the same and it is refreshing to look at problems from different angles. We met face to face first, always works best in my view even if it can be difficult to arrange. We have now met a few times and I would like to think we have both gained something from the programme already. I would recommend others to get involved."

- Heather, Health, Safety, Environment & Sustainability Director at Balfour Beatty
