Meet the founder

HR Staple is an independent HR Consultancy business, based in Midlothian, on the outskirts of Edinburgh.  Formed by Jaclyn Pringle, an experienced Human Resources professional and a Chartered Fellow of the CIPD, HR Staple pulls on over 17 years HR experience to quickly understand your needs and work with you to create tailored people solutions that are right for your business.   

Having previously worked in senior HR roles, Jaclyn is able to draw on solid experience to deliver a first-class HR service to clients.  With an MSc in HR Management and an accredited ACAS Workplace Mediator, Jaclyn works to offer a ‘staple’ HR offering to ensure a wide remit of HR services are provided to businesses in Edinburgh, the Lothians and throughout the country.  Jaclyn’s approachable manner allows her to establish client relationships both quickly and effectively, tailoring practical solutions to fit the individual requirements of each client.

HR Staple’s purpose is to add real value through supporting you to get the absolute best out of your people, so you can drive the business forward.  We understand that you built your business to do the thing you love and the work you do best - and managing the people side may not be that, whether that be operational or strategic.  HR Staple is here for just this – your employee related matters.  We are committed to delivering the highest standards through quality and trusted support and advice that you can rely on.

Our Mission

To provide a trusted and reliable HR service, as your HR partner of choice, that quickly adds value to businesses, whilst enabling competitive advantage through people.


HR Staple operates with integrity, pragmatism and a commitment to expert advice.  We are passionate about the role that HR takes commercially in building the capability of businesses to achieve both their strategic and operational objectives through their people.  Every business is different, so we demonstrate a real focus on clarity when identifying what a business needs – what is right for your business.  We recognise a ‘one size fits all’ approach will not add value for you, the client, and we therefore work to fully understand, offer tailored services, and create specific solutions that will enable enhanced business performance.
