Clotilde Capecce, Travel Consultant

My personal experience with Platinum Travel Recruitment have been exemplary. Having registered with a few agencies, I have found Lakshmi to be proactive and extremely professional in her approach. She is always willing to go that extra mile, understands your needs and offers right advice with your CV to find a suitable position for you. I have found Lakshmi to be very prompt in responding to my calls and emails and keeps me updated throughout the whole process of job placement.I would recommend PT Recruitment to anyone seeking desired roles in the travel industry, whether it be business or leisure travel.

Dipak Sheth, Senior Manager

If it was super-fast replying to emails, friendly attitude, or real professionalism when dealing with requests, there’s not a single thing I could say was wrong during the whole hiring process.

Usually the case is that you have to demand an answer multiple times, but with PTR the answers come before the question is placed (literally).

You know that feeling when you’re in and out of a busy supermarket in 3 minutes because you’ve been lucky to be the first one on the till they just opened? This is it, just better. 11/10.

Andrej Turba, Event Manager 

I can truly recommended Platinum Travel Recruitment to everyone due to the hard work and determination Lakshmi provided me in seeking my new position. Lakshmi listens to your needs and requirements so knows exactly what you are looking for. She set me up with two different companies both within a couple of weeks of me finishing my last role. She sent through excellent tips and advice  which was very detailed and all you need to do is follow it and you will be fine. I initially had 2 telephone interviews and then within a couple of days later I was invited to a face to face interview. On the same day just a few hours later one of the companies offered me the job and I was so happy as it was what I really wanted. I couldn’t thank Lakshmi enough she was excellent throughout the whole process and kept me informed at every stage. Platinum Travel are the best recruitment agency I have used and I can’t wait to start my new position all thanks to them.

Easily the friendliest, most supportive and professional recruitment agent I have come across – a pleasure to work with, and clearly has great relationships with the clients too. Highly recommended! Thanks Lakshmi.

Ian Andrerson, Private Travel Consultant

Having been out of work for the first time in many years,  I’ve been surprised at the number of agencies and websites out there. Platinum Travel has stood head and shoulders above the rest and have been with me every step of the way throughout my interviews. Lakshmi answers emails and texts almost immediately making you feel special and individual rather than just another jobseeker. Thank you for all your help, you are as asset to your company and I shall recommend your services to others.

Jon Newby, Travel Consultant

In a nut shell, Platinum Travel Recruitment are excellent. Kerry is  an extremely diligent, persuasive, personable lady, who with out doubt, excels at her job, simply I can’t say enough good things about her work. As a person who has talked to a few agencies I can tell you that Platinum is head and shoulders above the rest and I will firmly recommend you to any one I know who is looking for a job in travel.

Amanda Charlton, Tailormade Consultant

From our clients…

As I went down the page to do this testimonial I read someone had written “Lakshmi you truly are a star”. I could not agree more.

Recruitment is time consuming and difficult. Lakshmi took the time understand exactly the type of candidates we are interested in and has somehow managed to find and send me right candidates each time. I really appreciate that she won’t waste my time sending me lots of drivel. Also, it doesn’t matter what time of day it is or if it is a weekend, if I email Lakshmi she always responds, that’s so fantastic to see.

I will be honest and say we went with 3 or 4 agencies as we needed several candidates but somehow every single candidate that we have recruited has come exclusively from Platinum. I can’t think of a higher accolade to the exceptional job done by PTR.

Habib Rehman, Director

I am happy to recommend the recruitment service offered by Platinum Travel Recruitment. Lakshmi & Charlie have been extremely attentive and efficient throughout our hospitality recruitment process and were knowledgeable and approachable at all times.

Fiona Barnes, HR Manager

I have been impressed time and time again with PTR consultant. Lakshmi is first class. She understood each brief and ensures her recommended candidates match our company ethos and objectives.  I’d recommend their services to anyone. Thanks you so much for all your hard work.

Alistair Gill, CEO – Art Travel Group

We have received highly professional and proactive support from Platinum who have understood our requirements completely and introduced a range of appropriate candidates including our new very high grade Business Development Manager.

Geraldine Neame, Business Travel Management Company

Being new to Platinum Travel Recruitment I have been very pleased with the service we have received so far. We have already placed a candidate and have enjoyed quick and efficient service and answers to any questions we may have posed. Lakshmi came to meet us in our offices and it was obvious that she understood our needs and requirements by the calibre of candidates that she sent over. She seems to ‘get’ us.

Daniella Mullins, Manager 

I really enjoy working together with Lakshmi. She is very reliable, effective and adapts quickly to any of our changes and needs. She has a good market knowledge and her service is always very much appreciated.

Sina Kuehnen, Recrutier 

Lakshmi is very pleasant to work with. She is very trustworthy and follows up in a quick fashion whenever she is contacted (sometimes even outside of business hours). Her way of working is fully tailored to our needs and she knows how to have maximum impact with limited touch points, making the ROI higher for everyone.

Michael Lynch, Interal Recruiter 

Have worked with Lakshmi over the last number of years and have always found her to be quick to respond, professional and able to deliver what our requirements are.

The pre-scanning of candidates to ensure the ones that are shortlisted meet the requirements is a vital role the agency provides and this has worked well with Lakshmi.

Nimesh Shah, Director

I have had the pleasure to work with Lakshmi and Platinum Travel Recruitment for a number of years.

Their ability to respond quickly and accurately to a brief we present to them for a new role, is first class.

They provide high quality candidates that really meet our requirements and we are really happy with their professional approach.

John McEwan, Chairman of a multi sector travel group

Platinum Travel Recruitment has been a great support and service to our recruitment process. We thank Lakshmi for coordinating with us professionally and providing a strong profile of candidates that we have successfully recruited in our company!

Halima Valli, Wholesale Tour Operator

Once again I’d like to say a huge thank you to Lakshmi for coming up trumps!

Over the past five years or more, Lakshmi and her team have consistently provided a fast, efficient and friendly service….and more importantly high calibre candidates!

Unlike other recruitment firms, Platinum TR doesn’t constantly harangue me with cold calls. Lakshmi will only call if she feels she has a ‘good fit’.

We’ve recruited several of our current team from Platinum TR – two of which are now managers! Most recently, Lakshmi has helped fill three sales positions – sourcing quality candidates from leading travel companies in our niche market.

I would recommend Lakshmi and Platinum TR unreservedly.

Until the next time!
