Luxury hospitality recruitment specialist partnering with you to find the perfect fit. 


Louise Phelps

Founder and Director

I’m Louise - an experienced recruiter/headhunter specialising in luxury hospitality (5* hotels, Private Members clubs, Michelin restaurants, luxury residences and UHNWI’s) My ethos? People are our biggest asset. I only work with those who agree and genuinely care. My business comes from personal recommendations (clients and candidates) and there’s nothing I enjoy more than helping someone find their perfect new position or employee. I say no to requests, often. None of this 90 hour weeks in a kitchen nonsense because you have a big name above the door. Nope, not on my watch. Looking for someone to support your General Manager and paying them just above minimum wage? Again…no. My clients ethics and morals need to align with mine. I recruit for a variety of positions across the luxury hospitality space, management level and above. What do they have in common? They’re awesome positions, with great employers, excellent packages and the best managers.   My skills have seen me recognised with prestigious industry awards, appearing on industry podcasts and working with some of the most talented people in the World.   Whilst I have a full commercial mind-set – my core values and beliefs are in our biggest asset, our people. And as a product, our people processes.     Being a people focused business, I work hard to make sure the service and results I produce are second to none, a personalised service tailored accordingly.

With an extensive network alongside remarkable recommendations and testimonials, LJ People is a trusted partner to many hospitality organisations, leaders and colleagues.
