Job description

Are you a talented Beauty Therapist ready for an exciting new opportunity?

We're looking for an experienced Beauty Therapist who can work a mix of Saturdays (8:45am - 7pm) and Sundays (9:45am - 7pm).

If you're eager to be part of a salon known for its friendly vibe and five-star service, we'd love to meet you!

Our absolute passion is to make sure every client feels special and receives an outstanding service from us every time they visit our salon. It's also really important to us that every client leaves with all the information they need to get the best results after their treatment.
