Lucy Kidd…Travelled The World & Became A Laser Specialist


  • Name: Lucy Kidd
  • Class of: 2010
  • Studied: NVQ Levels 2 & 3 in Beauty Therapy
  • Doing What? Currently working as a Skin Consultant & Laser Specialist for Elements MediSpa.

After seeing a presentation from Steiner, a company that operates spas on-board luxury cruise ships, whilst on her course at Selby College and being impressed with the career progression available, Lucy was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to spend the next two years travelling the world at sea. This gave her a wide range of experience, from customer service to sales and from here she progressed to become an Assistant Manager.

Lucy then found herself developing an interest in the medical aesthetic side of the industry and decided to work for an Irish national laser clinic in Dublin for 18 months to gain further experience of laser treatments.

Today she is back in the UK working for a cosmetic procedures clinic alongside medical aesthetic nurses, performing up-to-date treatments such as chemical skin peels, fractional laser treatments, vitamin micro-injections for the skin, hair-loss treatments and much more! 

Lucy believes that the Beauty Therapy course at Selby College and introduction to employers Steiner, helped her to secure that all-important first role, saying: “I would not be in the position that I am today without the good background knowledge College gave me into the industry, which I still refer back to today.”

Where in the world could a course in Beauty Therapy at Selby College take you?
