About the Leisure Industry

The Leisure industry is very closely linked with the Travel and Tourism industry and is very big business here in the UK. It has a track record in creating not just jobs but attractive careers whether you are looking for part time, full time or flexible working conditions and you don't always need loads of qualifications to be accepted.

Working in the industry can be quite demanding with unsociable hours but it can also be very rewarding. To be successful you would will need to like working with people and have excellent people skills whether you are working as a beauty therapist, tattooist, hairdresser, nail technician, travel agent, casino manager or spa manager.
