From Behind The Hair and Beauty Recruitment Desk At Rose Hadley London
May 18 2020
Hi Hair and Beauty world!
We’ve got maybe 6/7 weeks before the finger is taken off the pause button and I thought I’d share a weekly post leading up to ‘operation restart’.
Three weeks ago, I was super worried about what kind of hair and beauty recruitment business I would be opening back up, but last week saw a shift in energy and the signs from behind the desk are looking increasingly positive on a daily basis and I wanted to share, offer a reality check and reach out with some encouraging news. Don’t get me wrong, there are challenges ahead, but the early signs are looking good.
A recent survey found that a hair salon appointment was among the top three things people are most excited about when the pause button is released. This is reassuring indeed (did you see the reports evidencing the queues for haircuts in New Zealand?)!
Last week I received many calls from hair salon owners, all asking similar questions –
- Will you be there for us when we reopen?
Answer: 100% yes!
2. Will you have enough hair/beauty temps to support us?
Answer: 100% yes!
There were also calls from hair and beauty talent, again, all asking similar questions –
- We know the industry is closed right now, but can we register a CV in anticipation of the restart.
Answer: 100% yes you can!
2. How do you think the hair and beauty job market will be? Will there be temp jobs?
Answer: The permanent job market may take a while to get going but we expect there to be a demand for hair and beauty temps as hair and beauty salons open their doors and the industry steps on the path to recovery.
For sure the hair and beauty salon experience will be different for both clients and staff, but even with a 6/7 week lead time, energy and momentum is beginning to brew.
Next update will be on May 25. Be well, stay safe .
