Beauty Therapy Recruitment Process

The recruitment process for work in beauty therapy will usually follow a fairly standard procedure. The first contact that you will have with a spa, salon or other employer will be through your CV and covering letter of application. It is vital, therefore, to make sure that you take this opportunity to ‘sell’ yourself, and your own particular skills, to whoever is to review your application.

If you have any previous experience in the beauty industry, then it is, of course, vital to highlight this from the outset: if you can demonstrate that you have successfully acquitted yourself in a similar position before, your potential employer will begin by being well-disposed towards your application. As such, you should definitely highlight relevant previous experience in your CV, especially if you have taken time away from the beauty field.

If there is an application form involved in the recruitment process, you will probably be asked to delineate those specific skills which will help you get to grips with a new job quickly and easily. Even if you are not asked specifically, however, it will help your application no end to make it very clear, in your CV, that you have the skill-set necessary to make you a successful and useful member of the team that you hope to join. As such, try to bolster the details of your previous employment by making a special note of the duties that you undertook – and the things that you achieved – in previous jobs that make you a great candidate for the one that you are currently applying for. Of course, details of your relevant training and qualifications will also help: if you are a fully qualified nail technician, the person reading your CV needs to know!

If you progress to the interview stage, you should be prepared to back up everything that you have put on your CV, as well as demonstrate your personal aptitude for work as a beauty therapist through your appearance, professionalism, inner confidence and friendly attitude.

Child Care Recruitment

Child care covers a range of operations from nurseries that care for children from birth to primary-school age, to pre-schools caring for children aged two through five, to play groups, breakfast clubs, after-school clubs and holiday play schemes.

The work tends to be flexible with plenty of part-time and term-time employment suitable for parents of young children. There is a chronic lack of men, with entire nurseries run solely by women. Men are valued since many children have no positive male role models in their home.

So, if you’re a man who loves children, getting a job in child care shouldn’t be too difficult. childcarejobs promotes employment throughout the country. You don’t need qualifications to apply, though evidence of a commitment to working with children may be expected.

In times past, this was easy enough to obtain. These days, most paid positions involving children require a Criminal Records Bureau check. For the present, some voluntary groups are spared, but new regulations are coming into force in 2010, requiring all people, without exception, who work with children to submit to a new, more-scrutinising, criminal record check. The good news is that, unlike the CRB check, these new licences will be transferable from one workplace to another – it could, therefore, provide evidence of a commitment to a career with children.

If you’re unsure whether a child-care career is for you, it is possible to organise a “taster” session in which you spend time in a day-care centre, observing the daily routine of a professional, witnessing its rewards and pressures.

Child care isn’t well paid, and probably never will be. The appropriateness of a child-care career depends on what you hope to gain from your work. It certainly won’t get you power, influence, “the” house and a chick-magnet car. But if your idea of a great day involves expanding young minds and drying little eyes, it could be worth a closer look.
