Inspire others and create connections

The health and beauty industries are focused around people and assisting them to look and feel their best while gaining valuable life skills. Your people skills will come in handy when engaging with customers or clients.

The world has an increased awareness of the importance of good health and wellbeing so there are loads of job opportunities – dental assistant, caregiver, social worker, pharmacist, activity coordinator, support worker and more. You might choose to study and work your way into a physical therapist or nursing role. Nelson Tasman is the perfect playground to create a healthy balanced lifestyle, help others achieve their goals and be a part of their health journey.

Immerse yourself in the beauty industry – use your eye for detail and become a beauty merchandiser, sales representative, beauty therapist, stylist, or make-up artist. Understand the importance of skincare and create the link between internal and external factors to our overall wellbeing. Work for yourself – become qualified in your passion and run your own salon. Or have a team behind you and work your way up to a beauty counter manager.
