Personal and other services
Personal services include areas such as beauty, hairdressing, personal fitness training and funerals. They are all around creating tailored experiences for the individual. The personal services sector is very diverse and in high demand. It includes both large companies and individual sole traders.
Many people in the industry work in a mobile way, as they go out to meet their clients and don’t need a shopfront. This includes jobs such as personal trainer, masseuse, civil celebrant or hair and make up artists. Many people working in personal services run their own business or are self employed.
