About Prime People Plc

Prime People are a global group of specialist recruitment businesses operating across the real estate, energy, environmental, technology, digital, construction and engineering sectors.

The recruitment agency provides a friendly and professional environment, where employees are involved 100% in what they are trying to achieve. They have high standards which is one of the reasons they put people through challenging but fun recruitment assessments.

Prime People look for recruits that are talented, professional and who want to have the opportunity to be part of one of the leading recruiters in the UK.

Prime People offer excellent training and support for every recruit who starts a career with them. The training consists of both external courses with industry specific trainers and internal on the job training with experienced team leaders. Their programme of induction, appraisal and reviews are in place so that their people can gain feedback regularly.

Incentive plans are important to Prime People as they reward the hard work and determination to succeed. Their bi-monthly prize rewards the highest billers with all expenses paid trips or meals. Other incentive schemes include a Christmas prize tombola where employees win shopping vouchers, Christmas food and even 'leave early' vouchers. Prime People also offer free eyesight tests, cycle to work schemes and personal development grants which any employee can join after the completion of a 6 month probationary period.
