Closing date Monday for industry experts to lead development of Habia’s Professional Registers

Do you have the experience and industry knowledge to help Habia shape the way the beauty, nails and spa industries are regulated and advanced in an increasingly fast-paced market?

The Hair and Beauty Industry Authority (Habia) is on the search for a team of experienced industry experts for their Advisory Committee who will lead the development of its Professional Registers, which are delivered in partnership with sector skills council SkillsActive.

A key function of the Advisory Committee will be to guide the registers’ operations in order to help raise standards in the sector, be responsive to industry developments and to add value for industry professionals, employers and consumers alike.

Positions on the committee will be voluntary, requiring three meetings per year. One of the first objectives of the group will be to define the continuing professional development criteria of the Government-supported registers, which is particularly critical in an industry subject to such fast changes in new products, technologies and treatments.

Richard Lambert, Habia Sales and Marketing Director, stated, “We have been very clear that the registers are an industry initiative; the Advisory Committee is the vehicle that ensures ongoing transparency and true ownership by the sector. We are looking for a mix of people representing beauty, nails and spa but also with a variety of backgrounds including from employers, educators and industry brands.”


Closing date for applicants is Monday 19th May
