“I have worked closely with Luke and the team for the past few years. They are consistently helpful, polite and good humoured. They have always worked hard to secure the roles that I like and which are best suited to my skills.”

Janet, English Teacher


“Luke and the team have been amazing! They have been friendly, very supportive and fast to answer any queries. They were supper fast to place me in a school, I sign the contract on a Tuesday and on a Friday in the same week they call me to work in a Secondary school for a full week, which has been know renewed for a long term. Highly recommended.”

Critina, EAL Teaching Assistant


“Over the last year we have had real ups and downs with COVID-related staffing, from requiring no cover at all due to the huge reduction in the number of external meetings and courses to the days when the Track & Trace app resulted in 9 staff needing to self-isolate for one week. Whatever our situation, Principal Resourcing has been able to meet our needs and Luke and the team have been incredibly flexible when the situation has been so fluid.”

“It’s a pleasure working with Principal Resourcing. I appreciate the time you spend researching for any positions I have and those staff you have sent me have been hard working and committed to the role. You will always follow up to check how the staff have been and email me to see if there is anything.”

Sally Dean, Business Manager

“Obviously, it is natural to be sceptical about anything today. Thanks to Principal Resourcing with the assistance of Luke Bottomley, I took a leap of faith, leaving a full-time permanent post to work for the agency ( I had from qualify as a Teacher, always had a full time permanent job). The company Principal Resourcing and the quality team of people, that work with the common goal of working for you as an individual, is unbelievable, so genuine, and helpful.”

Chrissy, PE Teacher


Today was my last day working for PR and it’s been a fantastic experience, thanks to Hannah Gray initially and then Luke Bottomley. Luke has encouraged me out of my comfort zone so many times and his last placement was certainly the best- I went to Gladstone Road for ‘two weeks, maybe four’ in October- finally left today!

Just wanted you to know how much

I’ve appreciated Luke’s help and encouragement.

Thank you to all at PR for finding me work. Here’s wishing you all the best for the future.

I started teaching in 1977 before you were all born probably , and supply has been the perfect end.

“It is with pleasure and pride that I write to say how very satisfied I am with the service being consistently given to me by yourself as my consultant at Principal Resourcing.  I joined as a secondary supply teacher nearly four years ago and I am delighted I did.  My bookings are matched well to my subject skills and I am rewarded professionally and financially for my services with a sensitive and friendly and efficient company.”

Hazel, English Teacher


“The staff that were supplied by Principal Resourcing to help us with our LFD testing were fantastic. They worked alongside of our staff harmoniously, calmly and with purpose. Without their combined efforts and dedication to help us get through the testing period we would not have been able to achieve what we did. Thank you.”
