Huntsman barber shop in Aberdeen, launched in November 2016 by managing director Kyle Ross, is offering budding barbers the chance to work towards a SVQ Level 2 Diploma in Barbering. School leavers or just people looking for a career change will get the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the shop alongside the existing team of five.
The apprentice will join Marc Cran who made the switch to barbering after being made redundant from two oil and gas companies within the space of six months. Last year, he completed a specialist six-month course at the Scottish Barbering School and is now one of the Huntsman team.
Managing director Kyle Ross, said: “It is certainly an exciting time for barbering, and I am keen employ someone who is as passionate about the industry as we are here at Huntsman. An apprenticeship is a fantastic way of gaining experience whilst getting paid to work. We look forward to educating the new member of the team about the craft of barbering and the importance of hair care.”
