Google ‘jobs of the future’ and you’ll hit a host of articles about how the careers and professions are rapidly changing, and how technology and IT advancements mean the death of many of the service-based professions job seekers have previously relied on.
But if there’s one industry that’s set to break that trend, it’s beauty!
Not only is the personal touch of beauty professional can’t be automated, an increasing focus on health and wellbeing is seeing demand for qualified beauty and wellness professionals skyrocket.
Sound too good to be true? Well just check the following stat’s…
Late last year Fast Company reported the global wellness and beauty industry was valued at a mind-boggling $4.2 trillion, having grown 12.8 per cent in the two years prior.
They further noted the sector accounted for 5.3 per cent of global economic output.
Even when you break those statistics down, the figures are nothing short of astounding. In the beauty sector alone, personal care and beauty werevalued at $1.082 trillion, while the spa economy was worth $118.8 billion.
In 2018, the Australian Industry and Skills Committee noted 30,300 beauty therapists were employed in Australia. By 2023 that figure is expected to increase more than 40 per cent to 42,800.
Job Outlook adds that when you account for the turnover of some people leaving the industry, that’s actually likely to mean 25,000 job openings over the next five years.
And if you break that down, that means 5000 jobs will be on offer each and every year!
The positions within this sector which are set to experience the most significant growth include ‘other personal service’ workers, which will increase by 19.6 per cent, and beauty therapists, which will increase by 18.7 per cent.
When Kylie Jenner was recently crowned the world’s youngest self-made billionaire ever, it was testament to the growing opportunities available to the budding beauty entrepreneur.
In fact, Forbes recently reported the $445 billion beauty sales industry was one of the most prevalent places for “women to self-start” their way to success.
They found at least 40 prominent beauty start-ups had been founded by women, and not only was the beauty industry “a great place to start a business”, it was “increasingly a good place to sell a business and make a tidy profit”.
