A new hair salon coming to Woodbridge is taking an unusual approach to recruitment - by inviting job applicants to send in a video.

Quay Street Collective, which is due to open on the former site of Smashing Wines in May 2020, will create eight jobs in the area.

The new luxury hair salon is inviting those interested in joining the team to send a 60-second video to its Instagram page, showing their "passion for the industry, their inspiration, motivation and career aspirations".

Successful applicants will be invited to a face-to-face audition.

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 both a self-employed or employed capacity. Full-time staff will have the option of a four-day working week.

Applicants must be qualified to NVQ Level 2/3. Auditions will take place in Woodbridge in April.

Other non-hairdressing vacancies are also available for experienced front-of-house staff and salon managers, with full and part-time applications considered.
