Lockheed Martin, Government Account Manager
LA International have been a pleasure to deal with, supporting Lockheed Martin through often challenging and turbulent times. Their approach to customer engagement is one of openness and partnering, often supporting joint communication and staff management to ensure that we get the right messages across and support the sensitivities between our employees and their resources, thus ensuring a harmonious working environment that is robust and effective. This in turn has ensured that Lockheed Martin’s customers feel they are receiving a high quality of service that is delivered and represented by a market leading work force. During my time with Lockheed Martin LA International have provided services for over 5 years to my Staff and I. These services have been second to none.
CIS Solutions Delivery, Environment Agency, Project Centre Manager
LA International has provided the Agency with a high quality service which has allowed us to hire the volume of effective, skilled Contractors we’ve needed to deliver our projects on time and to budget. Some of the Agency’s requirements have been highly niche, and have required a flexible approach from a supplier. LA International has provided this, being cooperative and creative with the solutions they’ve offered us. We have a strong working relationship with their account team and they are an asset to our business; we value the role they play in helping us to deliver our organisational objectives.
University of East London, Associate Director, IT Programme and Projects Office
LA International has worked hard to get to know our business needs and, as a result, have been able to supply me with great staff time and time again. One of the reasons I particularly like working with LA International is the personal care and attention to detail - ensuing their placed staff and us as the customer are looked after. The team care deeply about the service they offer and we have a great working relationship. I would recommend LA International to other organisations looking for a first class recruitment service.
Fujitsu, IT Manager
LA International has enabled the seamless transition of old to new team members without compromising the level of service we provide to our customer. This has been achieved through its conscientiousness approach to recruitment and attention to detail in identifying the most appropriate engineers against the criteria provided in the job descriptions. I am 100% happy with the level of expertise and quality of the team members it has recruited and I preside over what I consider a high performing team delivering an important and quality service. I’m so glad that LA International is a recruitment partner to Fujitsu as it leaves me confident that in the future our recruitment/resource needs are in safe hands.
Jisc, Director of Technology and Analytics
In the time that we have been dealing with LA International, they have understood all requirements that we have had; they have demonstrated real attention to detail when sourcing candidates, ensuring that the delivery is always extremely quick and efficient which ultimately helps with project delivery at Jisc. I would not hesitate in recommending LA International to other areas of Jisc, or organisations that wish to recruit high-level IT staff into their business.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Application Service Lead
After a comprehensive tendering exercise, LA International successfully won a large project which centred around our Application and Testing Function. Their first task was to migrate 30+ resources from an incumbent supplier, which they did very effectively and with no disruption to our live services. LA International then worked closely with our business to analyse where processes could be improved and where cost could be removed. During this time there was an unforeseen ramp up in resource demand – this presented issues on several levels – a large volume was required at very short notice, security clearance was mandatory and geographical challenges were encountered due to our main site location. LA International managed to successfully deliver the resources by utilising pre-qualified resource pools, maximising on their strengths within the security space and by playing a major part in the interview process. Overall, as Technical and Service Delivery Manager on the project, I can confirm that LA International successfully delivered everything asked of them in a very professional manner and I would highly recommend them.
Lockheed Martin, Defence Project Manager
I consider LA International a core company on our project team. Our end-Client environment presents staffing challenges both from the perspective of security clearances as well as the dynamic nature of just in time staffing. LA International has responded to requests ranging from very skilled network and virtualization engineers to logistics and even program management office support. I have found the responsiveness of LA International to be the best of any company I have employed in Europe. The resumes they have provided have been very qualified and diverse candidates. They take the initiative to shape offers according to my constraints and provide options. They also do the hard work that other companies sometimes rely on the prime contractor to do. I feel like LA International has a genuine interest in the people they have provided on the program. Teamwork is essential with a consultant work force and LA International works alongside Lockheed to establish that environment, including team builder events. When I call LA International, I am assured to get a return call that day from someone in the company that demonstrates an effort to help.
Commodity Lead, Telenet
LA International has been selected in our PSL after a RFQ project with many potential suppliers and ended on top of the list.

I strongly recommend LA international to other companies looking for Contingent Labour in the future.
