In the Detail
Level 3 Spa Apprentice – Elan Spa Academy at Bovey Castle Hotel Elan Spa
Elan Spa Bovey & Elan Spa Mount
Following on from the success of the Spa Academy that was launched in 2018, Eden Hotel Collection are excited to be opening up applications for the September 2019-20 intake of Spa Apprentices.
This is designed for qualified (or soon to be) Level 2 Beauty students looking for an alternative to a college apprenticeship, OR for those who completed a Level 2 apprenticeship elsewhere and are looking to expand their skills in a luxury boutique spa environment.
What you’ll be doing?
Our Academy will provide you the opportunity to work with us full-time and to ‘earn while you learn’, setting you up with the very best skills, qualifications and experience to begin your career in the beauty industry. We have partnered with the International Beauty and Holistic Academy to create a Level 3 Beauty Therapy qualification, where instead of day release, you will attend 3 days of training per month across 10 months, with accommodation and travel costs covered.
You will join us and initially master reception duties, before honing your Level 2 skills with ESPA training to deliver facials. As your training continues, so will your experience, allowing you to train and deliver massage, body wraps and advanced treatments, all supported by ‘Eden Masterclasses’ with ESPA and Orly.
This is a unique experience and is bespoke to Eden Hotel Collection, where you can develop through your Level 3 qualification whilst delivering advanced treatments prior to full qualification completion.
What you’ll need?
A successful candidate will have gained a Level 2 qualification in Beauty Therapy, be passionate about working for a collection of spa’s who pride ourselves on providing the wow factor for both guests and members, and is renowned for the highest standards of client care and therapy.
You will also be a natural people person, have a caring attitude and an ability to put people at ease.
You will possess great communication skills as well as being a good listener and capable of building lasting relationships with colleagues. Excellent attention to detail, as well as impeccable grooming and presentation is vital.
It goes without saying that a positive ‘can do’ attitude is essential, along with a good sense of humour, team spirit, as well as a real and evident passion for both the industry and for our Elan Spas.
What to expect?
Our Spa opening times are between 6:30am-9:30pm Monday-Friday, and 8am-8pm Saturday and Sunday. You will be working a minimum of 30 hours, across 5 days per week (inclusive of training days). Our spa’s are busiest from Friday to Sunday, with weekends off awarded on a rotation basis.
What’s in it for you?
• Pay rate of £7.70 (rising on completion)
• Guaranteed full time employment at the end of your apprenticeship;
• Great prospects with a diverse Career Progression Pathway;
• Training to achieve a VTCT Level 3 in Beauty Therapy;
• Premium product house training throughout the year and a welcome pack;
• A dedicated mentor and regular reviews;
• 31 days annual leave entitlement, rising to 33 days with service;
• Discounted hotel stays including within the spa and food and beverage departments;
Our Elan Spa Academy has recently been shortlisted in the Emerging Talent category for the Caterer.com People Awards 2019. This is a great opportunity to join us on our journey with Elan Spas and Eden Hotel Collection.
