Why Maria’s Dream Job in Beauty has taken off…
Skills North East’s Beauty Tutor Michelle caught up with Maria one of our 2019 Beauty graduates. We find out about her dream job in beauty. We hear how Maria has made a successful career in Beauty Massage. She qualified in VTCT Level 3 Beauty Massage Therapy, the course was held in Doncaster.
It all Started Back in 2014
Maria started her career in Beauty back in 2014 so she could work more flexible hours to fit in around her children.
Always wishing to progress in her career she has a passion to learn massage. Two years ago Maria decided to make this happen. She saw an advert on Facebook, posted by our Head of Beauty Tutor Michelle. She made the decision to enrol onto our Level 3 Beauty Massage Therapy course.
The course was lead by our Beauty Tutor, Jade and this what Jade said about Maria.
‘Maria was an excellent student who was very passionate about learning. She excelled in the course and it’s great to see her doing so well now. When she sent us all of her glowing recommendations both Michelle and I felt so thrilled! It’s been just under two years since Maria was our student but it’s clear she still has the same passion she showed us on the course’.
Life was a Juggle
Between juggling work, children and home life Maria was easily able to fit the course into her busy schedule due to the convenient times.
‘The course was held on a Monday from 10am-2pm. I’d wanted to learn massage for a long time and when I saw the day of the course was on my day off and worked around the school times I thought it’s like it’s meant to be. I have always wanted to further my knowledge & skills within the beauty industry. I felt drawn towards massage. It’s an amazing fulfilling and rewarding career, helping those in pain or discomfort, recovering from injury or suffering from stress and anxiety. It’s my favourite thing to do and I feel like it’s my forte’.
Maria is self-employed and has a space within Blissful Beauty Hair and Tanning in Thorne. Her business is now going from strength to strength with glowing reviews on her social media. She has so many customer referrals with many of them commenting on how much of a difference Maria has made to their well-being. Assisting many clients with joint and muscle issues, Maria is pleased she decided to take the plunge and enrol on the course and is now looking forward to the next step.
Maria goes on to say ‘I’m so pleased I took the course. I have such lovely clients, some of them even work in spas, they give me such excellent feedback which really spurs me on. I am now wanting to reach out and partner with another qualified masseur to be able to offer couple massage and mother & daughter packages, which I believe will be a success in the near future.’
Well done Maria, we’re looking forward to catching up with you in the future!
