CIDESCO launches ‘International Guide to Working in Beauty or Spa Abroad’

02 Mar 2016
International beauty and spa therapy standard setter CIDESCO has launched its ‘International Guide to Working Abroad’ as a collated response to the questions it regularly receives from its students.

“Whilst an exciting prospect, moving abroad for many is a very daunting experience,” said Anna-Cari Gund, CIDESCO International president. “At CIDESCO, we encourage our students to study or work abroad, bringing in new possibilities and opportunities while also offering experiences of new culture and a new way of life.”

Gund said she also understands that the prospect of moving abroad can be scary, and she hopes the guide will answer students’ questions and put them at ease.

Touching on subjects such as ‘doing your research,’ ‘preparing for culture shock’ and ‘knowing your rights,’ CIDESCO’s guide draws on the experience of its own members as well as Debbie Weaver, the head of international recruitment at spa operator Steiner Leisure.

“It is great for students who are thinking about making the move, or students who have already made the move, and we have already had some great feedback,” said Gund.

This is the first of a new ‘Guide Series’ from CIDESCO, which plans to launch additional titles in the coming months.
