Things to consider

Shift work and weekend work. The hours may change to suit the needs of the business. Training for additional qualifications will be done outside of working hours, (other than the 5 hours per week that is allocated to the college release day for obtaining your Advanced Apprenticeship in Beauty Therapy). The position of a beauty therapist is to provide a full service of quality treatments and to make the client your priority. This may occasionally mean a treatment will take longer than anticipated, which could run into an allocated lunch break or over your working hours. The current National Minimum Wage for an apprentice is £3.50 an hour. This rate applies to apprentices under 19 and those aged 19 or over who are in their first year. Apprentices must be paid at least the minimum wage rate for their age if they are aged 19 or over and have completed their first year. The minimum wage rates are £5.60 an hour for 18-20 year olds and £7.05 for anyone aged 21 and over. Apprentices are paid for their normal working hours and training that’s part of their apprenticeship (usually one day per week).
