Senior Consultant – Head of Hotels Recruitment

Lara Dos Santos

CORE Profile

Originally in fashion retail, but since 2017, I have taken on the world of hotel recruitment for a bit of a challenge and boy, has it been an exciting journey! 

I currently head up the UK Hotel sector at COREcruitment as a senior consultant and I mostly cover senior leadership positions as well as HOD level roles. I work with some of the worlds best known hotel brands, as well as your typical budget,  branded and lifestyle hotel concepts. The perks of visiting clients and doing site visits and seeing some incredible hotel suites are top on the highlight list for sure. 


What do you enjoy most?

Working with a great team and helping candidates find their dream new job as well as clients find their perfect candidates – the buzz of that never dies down.

What did you want to be when you were younger?

It was a tossup between being a pharmacist or paediatrician. Neither remotely close to being a hotel recruiter.

What do you do when you're not at work?

Most will know me to be a travel freak so I am usually flying out somewhere glamorous for the weekend or planning my next getaway. You can follow my travel adventures on Instagram -
