Good news - you don’t need a recruitment background. You don’t need specific industry knowledge. You just need drive, determination, social skills… and a few other key traits. If you’re the right culture fit, you could go far! Read on to get a clear picture of how your transferable skills could translate to a recruitment role...

What is it about recruitment?

The transition into recruitment from any sales role can take your career to the next level! Even in the training phase of being a recruitment consultant, you will recognise the potential of this business… and how far your career path in recruitment could take you!

Working as a hairdresser, you thrive in a sociable environment, ensuring you are always in the loop with latest trends and styles. But what are your career goals as a hairdresser? You’re here for a reason, you want more in life, and you want to create your dream life!

How Can My Hairdressing Skills Transfer to Recruitment?

If transferred successfully, your skills developed in hairdressing can result in high earnings! Some recruitment skills are honed over time, but starting off on the right foot is key… and that’s easier when your skills are transferable!

Key transferable Hairdressing skills:

  • Customer-focused
    Your job revolves around ensuring customers get the most out of their experience! Patience, politeness, balancing ‘the customer is always right’ and your own expertise - and always ensuring a customer leaves happy.
  • Communication skills
    You speak to people all day, every day, and ensure you create a comfortable environment for your customers! Being able to communicate professionally and easily is key to this role.
  • A problem solver
    Dealing with difficult customers and ensuring they are satisfied with their experience. Solving their problems, and providing a solution to their queries and questions.
  • Organisation
    Working for yourself or in a salon, you need to be organised with clients and general time management. Planning your diary, and scheduling people - working around them and organising your appointments.
  • Teamwork skills
    If you work in a salon, you may work with other team members all day - ensuring a smooth service for all customers. You know how to work with others and thrive in a busy, sociable environment.
  • Flexibility
    Adapting to your clients needs is a normal part of the day - being flexible with your schedule or usual hours, changing and shuffling your appointments to ensure you optimise your working hours!
