The Principal Team would like to keep you up to date on the work that is going on behind the scenes by our teams and also update you on the industry news that we have access to. Due to the closure of schools, we are working in smaller teams, with a furlough rota system in place to ensure all members of the team are able to keep in touch with both clients and candidates. We are busy speaking with our school contacts and sourcing vacancies and potential assignments in preparation for the schools reopening.
The Directors at Principal Resourcing have worked relentlessly to secure a comprehensive furlough option for our candidates. Candidates eligible through Principal Resourcing PAYE, were furloughed immediately. The New Red Planet launched the furlough process for eligible candidates on 21st April. The furlough process through New Red Planet was complex and required answers directly from the Job Retention Scheme. The team moved quickly and efficiently to launch the scheme when legalities were finalised. If you are eligible, you should now have received correspondence directly from New Red Planet, if you have not received correspondence or have questions relating to the process please contact 0161 7131730.
Long Term and Permanent Vacancies
Our teams are in regular contact with our clients and are working to source suitable assignments for you. If you are looking for long term or permanent roles, please send an up to date CV to your relevant branch. An up to date CV with comprehensive details covering your most recent assignments can make a significant difference in the shortlisting process. We also require details of any additional training courses or qualifications you have gained. If you require support with this please contact your branch.
