The January return to work is a time when many people reconsider whether they’re gainfully employed doing something they love. It’s a time when many consider alternative uses of their skills for a new career. Medical aesthetics is an increasingly popular area for those with a clinical training and background.
We spend a lot of time at work and it is important to be challenged and happy in the role, yet many Brits are dissatisfied for a variety of reasons:
- Money – This could be about the financial returns, especially where budgets are squeezed and people don’t feel adequately recompensed for the role they carry out
- Control – For others it’s about independence, freedom and wanting to manage their own time and career more
- Enjoyment – If you’re doing anything for more than a few hours plus a week, then it makes absolute sense to expect satisfaction from getting good results
- Flexibility – Having the right work-life balance is something of a holy grail. Some people deny it exists, while others manage to find a way by setting up their own businesses
- Politics – The distress and stress that can be caused by an unpleasant work environment should not be underestimated
- Advancement – For those looking to learn new skills, grow and develop their career, it is important to have an environment that supports that
- Uncertainty – Insecurity at work and the threat of redundancy is sadly all too common and a very frequently quoted reason for assessing the alternatives
The world of medical aesthetics appeals on a number of levels.
- Lucrative – Good practitioners can earn good money from offering cosmetic treatments
- Growth Market – It is an area which is increasing in consumer demand
- Independence – Working as an aesthetic doctor is a popular part time or flexible working option. Many continue commitments as a GP alongside aesthetic work
- Enjoyable – The use of artistic skills and talents, plus working closely with patients to help them improve their appearance and feel better about themselves is very rewarding work
- Advancement – Those with qualifications as a doctor, nurse or other medic have an opportunity to build on those skills by learning cosmetic treatments. While there is no regulation as yet, it seems likely that in future cosmetic practitioners will have to be properly qualified and highly likely that skilled, qualified medical professionals will be well placed
Little wonder then that in the first week of January 2015, as the crisis in the health service hits the headlines, enquiries at Manchester-based SkinViva Training are already more than double the level of 2014.
