Becky Woodhouse of PURE Spa & Beauty speaks at the SIE Student Enterprise Summit 2016.
PURE Spa & Beauty is an industry leading spa and beauty brand designed for urban professionals. But Becky wasn’t always in the business of well-being. After completing a degree in Chemical Engineering with Management, Becky decided engineering wasn’t for her and chose to become a Chartered Accountant. After qualifying, she recognised a gap in the market for women and men like herself; those starved for some “me-time”.
Becky’s vision was simple: to combine essential spa and beauty treatments in urban locations, putting clients first. Founded in 2002, the company now offers escapes in 6 convenient locations across Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen in stand-alone spas, shopping centres, retail stores and hotels. As a company, PURE aims to be inclusive not exclusive, and it’s expert therapists are there for clients after their longest days!
PURE Spa & Beauty employs over 100 staff across its locations and head office, serving over 60,000 clients annually. It is proud to hold several awards including UK Day Spa of the Year 2013 and Employer of the Year 2015.
