New Luxury Hair Salon in Woodbridge to Create Jobs

Planning for an exciting new luxury hair salon in the centre of Woodbridge is underway. Quay Street Collective is due to open in the former site of Smashing Wines in May 2020 and will create eight jobs in the area.

In order to recruit talented, career-minded individuals, Quay Street Collective is taking a novel approach to recruitment, inviting those interested in joining the team to send a 60 second video to the Quay Street Collective Instagram page that shows their passion for the industry, their inspiration, motivation and career aspirations. Successful applicants will be invited to a face-to-face audition, where they can showcase their talent in front of industry peers.

The salon requires anyone applying for a position to have a minimum of three years’ salon experience. Part-time and full-time positions are available, in a self-employed or employed capacity. Applicants must be qualified to NVQ Level 2/3. Auditions will take place in Woodbridge in April and applicants can contact with any questions.

Other non-hairdressing vacancies are available, with full and part time applications considered. Experienced ‘front of house’ staff and salon managers are welcome to apply.

The Director of Quay Street Collective explains: “We are creating a brand-new team and are looking for technique-driven, talented, innovative stylists who will bring their own vibe to the salon. We are passionate about education and proactively create opportunities for people within our industry. We offer fantastic opportunities for our team members throughout their careers, including; coaching, training courses, photo shoots, competitions, shows, and incentives with great rewards. With well-being in mind, we will also offer our full-time colleagues the option of a four-day working week.

“The salon will be eco-friendly, and sustainable. Our stylists will be giving detailed, personalised consultations for every client – covering colour, cut and bespoke hair treatments. A lot of research has gone into sourcing the right products and furniture to ensure a luxurious and contemporary customer experience. The salon will offer a full range of hair treatments and will satisfy the increasing requests for innovative products, techniques and styles that we’ve received from the people of East Suffolk.”

The town centre premises are currently being fitted out to create a unique space where comfort and creativity are at the forefront.
