  • Angela at La Source International have been recruiting for Cowley Manor over the last year. La Source knows our expected requirements for each position and thoroughly screens and interviews all applicants prior to referring them to myself. Each applicant who has been referred by La Source has had the potential to gain a position at Cowley as all my requirements have been met.

     

    They have always kept in contact with myself to keep up to date with specific requirements and also positions still available and has personally visited the spa at Cowley to ensure that they can pass information onto the applicants first-hand. I look forward to working with them more in the future.

  • I have personally been using La Source now for some years and have started relying on Angela for the recruitment of Natura Day spa since I took on the position of manager in January.

     

    Angela has helped us find four fantastic therapists, perfectly suited to the brief that we provided her with. It is so reassuring to know that Angela is always at the end of the phone, ever the optimist, to help with any of our recruiting needs. Her personal, friendly approach to recruitment is a breath of fresh air!

    Jo Picton, Manager | Natura Day Spa
  • I first met Angela a few years back while I was looking for work. She was the first person I contacted and ended up being the last person I spoke to since she found me the perfect job within weeks. Since taking on that role I have been recruiting a few therapists.

     

    Angela has been the first and last reason that I have spoken to on all those occasions, as she has always been able to find the best candidates. She listens very well to the specifications of the role and will always evaluate anyone she sends my way through a personal interview. This is very comforting and reduces the amount of interviews I have to do dramatically.

     

    I have also found it to be quite rare in the industry. I am very happy with the team that Angela has helped me to set up. Going forward Angela will probably be the first, last and only person I will need to contact should I need to recruit or be recruited in the future. Highly recommended!

    Jenny Hayward, Spa Manager | The Carlton Tower Hotel, London
  • After leaving cruise ships I wanted to find overseas work and Angela was my first point of call where she managed to place me in Australia. As expected with an Agency you find that the support stops there but with La Source it truly does not. They are always there to help, listen and support you and offer advice when needed and ultimately goes the extra mile for you.

     

    When returning from Australia, Angela once again helped with a placement of work and in her true professional style ensured I was happy & settled and was on hand to offer any advice or help. I would never hesitate to call any of them if I needed advice and have done so many a time!

     

    Since joining Whittlebury Hall I have used La Source’s services to find exceptional therapists and would not hesitate to recommend Angela and La Source to any company. I have recommended them on may occasions and will continue to do so. As you know from being a candidate with La Source International that all other candidates are screened and interviewed which is pivotal for them to be able to match candidates to positions and it is not often they get it wrong

    Louise O'Shea Spa Manager | Whittlebury Hall
  • I just wanted to say a big thank you for your help in the recent appointment to our Customer Liaison position.

     

    La Source has always had a great understanding of our requirements so we know that the calibre of candidates presented to us is always of the highest level and suitable for the role. As usual the service you gave was highly efficient and we were kept informed throughout the whole recruitment process.

     

    All in all it has been a pleasure to work with you once again.

    Felicity Rose | ULTRATONE
  • I think La Source Recruitment are in a league of their own. I have worked with numerous recruitment companies and have found myself to only be a number without much consideration for the client and candidate. La Source, do what they say.

     

    They will source the correct candidate that is suited to your company, with your requirements, and the qualifications you need for the candidate to succeed within your organization. I would highly recommend them!!

    Louisa Webb - Area Manager - Environ UK
  • It has always been a pleasure working with La Source International. They are a very professional company and in my opinion the market leader in the industry.

     

    Angela especially takes great care in listening to the employer (and candidate) needs, and has great skill matching candidates to your requirements.

     

    This industry is all about people, and Angela truly understands this. This is what makes her successful. She is supportive, caring and very focused on delivering objectives professionally and effectively.

     

    She always delivers what she promises and I know when a candidate comes to me for interview, Angela has already done a lot of preparation to send me someone who is suitable. She takes the hassle out of recruitment, and I am nearly always spoilt for choice with good candidates! She is always at the end of a phone, and always offers support above and beyond the call of duty. She has been my mentor for years!

     

    I hope La Source International continues to flourish, and thank you for all your support and positive energy!

    Jo Givens, Spa Manager | Simple Spa, Covent Garden, London
  • Angela is very professional and lovely to deal with and importantly she delivers exactly what you ask for. I have used other recruitment agencies in the past but I can truly trust Angela will seek out the right candidate for me and she is very selective in the process as I am. She is simply the best.

    Owner | Yvonne Martin Beauty Clinic, London
  • I have been extremely impressed with the quality of work and candidates that have been put through by the team at La Source International. In fact, we have had a 100% fill-rate to-date of both Therapists and Customer Relations Officers.

     

    Angela has understood our brief: in that we require professional and experienced candidates who are passionate about the beauty industry. She has delivered on candidates who are thoroughly screened and a strong cultural fit for our organisation. Her post-placement follow-up and support has also been outstanding.

    Shah Abdul-Wahid, Director - UK Operations | Ministry of Waxing
  • We have used La Source International for recruitment reasons several times and I have nothing but praise for the service I have received. On a personal level my contact Angela has always been extremely helpful and approachable and takes care to listen to my needs and provides a very professional service.
