Hi there,

I am very interested in a career of advanced beauty treatments such as the ones you offer at The Victorian Cosmentic Institute.
I have completed my Beautician Diploma at The Wellington School of Beauty Therapy in 2001 but unfortunatley have only worked in the industry for about a year as I have been travelling alot.
I am still currently living in London but hope to return to New Zealand (where im from) after Christmas and then hope to move to Melbourne in February or March 2012.
I have always had an interest in skin, beauty, healthy diets, fitness etc and would love to learn more, basically I would like to know what I need to do in order to start a career in laser and advanced skin treatments??
Is it possible to start work at a clinic such as yours and learn on the job with further training or would I need to enroll in a specialised coarse and study again?
Any help and advice you can give me would be much appreciated 🙂

I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind Regards


You are probably best to find someone to take you under their wing and teach you on the job. We have just hired a beautician, so we are not currently able to help you here, but maybe send me an email again in  a few months?
