Charm has been an excellent collaborator, going above and beyond to help me find a suitable role. He has been supportive in addressing any concerns I have had, working diligently to find solutions that are beneficial for me. Thankyou for your efforts!
Excellent quality service
My line manager is Charm and he couldn't have been more patient, supportive, proactive, and professional. Been with many agencies, it's hard to find a place where you get treated with respect. Very glad I joined.
Principal Education is the best agency I have worked and working with since I arrive in the UK. One of their staff named Charm is a wonderful person, he's a good listener and find solution to every problem or challenge you face at work. He's the most patient and understanding person I have met. He never goes angry, instead he provide solution and ensures you get the best of your request. Most importantly you get paid at the right time.
Jai Bance was fantastic, got me an interview for a job I really wanted very quickly and was super supportive throughout the process, complete angel 🙂
Jai has been of excellent help! he was quick, attentive and adamant in successfully finding and pairing me with the current role and sector that I am working at! I could have not felt anymore supported from the team at Principal Education!
This is probably the best agency I have joined , and I have joined a few. The pay, staff and work environment are all so professional and welcoming. They always have a new opportunity ready for you. I really recommended them!!!
Principal education has been reliable ever since I started working with the company. I have been constantly in work, my pay rate has been substantial, not to mention the service overall, has been professional. Jai Bance, who is one of the agents that ensured I get suitable locations that will get me to work on time, moreover, the work that he has placed me in has helped to enhance my skills in my profession.
Great work from Charm Dube! Super helpful and polite.
Jade was amazing! Helped me get through a long process and was always happy to help with positive energy as well as finding solutions.
Good agency, Charm was brill.
I can’t thanks Charm enough for finding me an amazing job !!!! Recommend 100% Thank you sooo much
Happy with the service I’ve received from a professional and approachable team. Found work quickly, with an excellent rate of pay. Feel looked after. Glad I registered with this agency!!
Principal Recruitment is one of the best supply agency that I have worked and still working with at present, they are very effective with their dealings. Jai has been so good to me since I joined the company by giving me a listen ear. His communication skill is top notch to the extent that I have also referred people to him.
Excellent, Charm was a very helpful and organised person I really enjoy working with him. He is very responsible and respectful. I hope he will be very successful in his job.
It’s been amazing working with this agency. They’re all very professional and helpful especially Charm and Jai.
Principal Education is a great organisation . I really enjoyed working with them. A dedicated, professional and amazing team. I have no doubt to strongly recommend it to everyone.
Charm is a good recruiter, awesome company to work through, assigned to some good schools as well; a streamlined service.
Charm has been proactive in searching for a suitable teaching role, consulting me to review my specific requirements and being available for calls and flexible with times.
Charm has been very helpful and attentive. He has worked hard to find the right job role to match my experience and skills.
I have been working with Charm for the past month and he has been excellent at finding opportunities that are tailored to exactly my skill set and preferences. He keeps in constant contact to update me with how things are progressing, feedback and has been successful in finding me the right school for me. Very dedicated and driven to find the exact work for you, I would highly recommend this agency and Charm in particular.
The service I received from someone named Connor at the agency has been unbelievably incredible. He kept me updated on all the details, kept regular contact, made sure everything was transparent and made my needs a priority. Connor ensured I received the best possible rate and confirmed all the details so I felt secure once we had discussed this. I am registered with a few agencies (which haven't been so great) but I no longer need the others because I have been treated so well and got the job I wanted straight away. Very pleased with Principal 🙂
I have had plenty of work through Principal Recruitment. Charm is brilliant and has found me suitable assignments and is always reachable should I have any questions. Right now I’m doing an assignment at a lovely, local secondary school and I really look forward to going to work there. Thank you Charm. I can wholeheartedly recommend Principal Recruitment.
Charm has been really helpful, he helped me find a school that works for me, that I’m comfortable with. Communicates well, I appreciate how he’s helped me.
Really helpful and friendly. Supportive with finding work opportunities. Thank you Charm!
The app is very useful to see the job role & location, very good pay rates. Consultants very helpful and supportive!

Signed up for this agency and since then, their communication has been amazing and take into considerations my work needs as well! Recommend working here for others as well:)! Charm has been amazing helping me as well so kudos!
As a new member of staff joining the staff team at Principle has been a quick and easy process and understanding in the needs required for suitable work
Wonderful staff both in Essex and London. Charm from the North London office is always informative, patient, focused and understanding. No false promises, completes the work and goes the extra mile. Nadine Somers-Music Teacher
Good communication by Jai. Anyone can trust to enter into schools and work .
With Principal I am working locally and I am happy with them as they always have managed my timesheets according to my availabilities and so on. I am really happy and Love working with this company, staff are great and so supportive. They make sure that you are comfortable with where you are working and that you are okay to travel.
Updated*2023 Aired my issues and concerns and they more then made up for it. My complaint was handled well.
Been a behaviour mentor for 4 years and I've been unlucky enough to have only worked with jai bance for the past 3 months. In those 3 months he's managed to get me my current highest paying roll as a temp & secured me a contract within my first school working with principle. In general I'm not a big fan of recruitment agencies as they often only view candidates as a pound note but these guys know the roles (in detail so your not walking blind) support you through the many challenges you will face as a temporary worker but most importantly the pays fair and its always payed on time. Cheers for all the help principle.
Amazing helped to get the job I want in instant And was helpful throughout
Principal solution has been brilliant. Great work ethics lovely caring staff especially Jai, he has been patient, supportive and professional. I was delighted with the level of personal attention I received. I have been very pleased with the agency and would definitely recommend them to anyone considering them.
The agency onboarding process to being offered a suitable assignment was seamless and fast. I would recommend Principal agency to others seeking work. It has been a pleasure liaising with Jai, Head of Sales
Principal Education brings with it a huge amount of experience from its Team and a commitment to making Supply Teaching Placements easier to manage with higher rates of pay! Sign Up now!!
Fantastic. Highly recommend
Simple and efficient, got started with Principal recently and already got well paying work within days. Hoping the agency continues to deliver and remain hassle free.
I had my first agency job and within minutes of arriving I felt very well looked after as it was my first time at this school. I thoroughly enjoyed working alongside the agency.

Principal is an on-demand 24/7/365 staffing app for the exclusively for the education sector.
Principal was founded to try and bring change to the education recruitment industry. Combining a unique blend of human expertise and the latest recruitment technology, we are set to provide the best value experience for both schools and supply staff.
What does this mean for me, the job seeker? Well, it means you can use the app to find no pressure, transparent and non-bias work when it suits you. It also means that you still have the support of a well-trained industry expert at the end of the phone for when you need support or advice, and as the app takes care of the everyday workload it leaves us more time to spend on the calls that matter.
All of this means we are also operationally more efficient than a traditional agency which intern means we can offer rates which are far better.
Principal already covers the whole of London, inner, outer and fringe at present, however we will soon be expanding into the home counties and other major cities.
Specialise in mainstream schools in both Primary and Secondary at present.
Principal was designed to help all, whatever your situation or work requirements. We can offer casual daily supply, long term assignments or permanent appointments.
No, not at all. We place everything inside the school, the most common roles are teachers and support staff (Cover Supervisors, Teaching Assistants, Learning Support Assistants, Higher Level Teaching Assistants) however we also place Caretakers, School Office Administrators, School Finance Staff, School Technicians, Pastoral officers, First aiders and Exam Invigilators just about everything else.
Getting started is easy, simply download our free app and register an account – this should take 60 seconds. Once you are in, you will be able to take a look around a potentially view your work matches there and then. If you want to progress further, we will be in touch to take you through the short compliance process. After this you will be able to accept supply work completely autonomously 24/7/365 and express your interest in long term or permanent jobs.
Absolutely, our schools trust us to ensure the candidates we supply are properly vetted and so you will be vetting inline with the DfE Keeping Children Safe in Schools: Safer Recruitment document, that said, we know it can be a pain waiting to be approved and so we have use technology to make this process as quick and efficient as possible.
Typically, it will take you just a few minutes to supply us with the information and documents we require. We will then take care of the rest.
We will need; –
- Right to work documents.
- Qualifications (if applicable)
- Your reference information
- Your DBS (Enhanced) – recent or on the update service.
Once we have this, generally we can take care of the rest and you will be cleared in a few days.
If you need your first DBS, your current DBS has expired, or you have an old DBS but didn’t register it with the DSB Update Service then we can arrange a new one for you. We have partnered with one of the UKs largest DBS providers, this means that you are sure to get your DBS as quickly as possible and error free.
We pay our candidates PAYE. We have partnered with an FCSA (The Freelance and Contractor Services Associates) Gold standard payroll company who administer our payroll. This means you will get access to Holiday Pay and Pension Contributions should you wish too. We don’t deal with anything offshore or unregulated and are very strict about the companies we use, this is for our protection as well as yours.
