Personal services

Personal services is a diverse, accessible industry. It is part of the other services industry, which is forecast to need 6,457 new workers in Victoria by 2026.*

Personal services includes a range of roles. You could be a beautician, hairdresser, or stylist. You could be a personal trainer or massage therapist. These diverse roles are all in demand.  

The industry is changing. Victorians are becoming more health conscious, so personal and sport trainers are in demand. 

Changing norms around personal appearance are also having an effect. Demand for beauty and hair removal services is steadily going up. More men are attending grooming salons, so the industry is opening to a whole new market.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) can open doors to a variety of roles in this industry. Most jobs need apprenticeships or traineeships, so you can earn an income while you learn.
