Choosing the right beauty recruitment agency

1 Jun 2020 / Artisan People

With so many recruitment agencies offering their services now, it’s not easy to choose the right one for your business and your brand. Recruitment for the beauty industry is particularly niche, so it’s really important to scour the market before signing on the dotted line to ensure that your new recruitment partner will understand your needs and be able to provide you with the high-quality candidates you are looking for.

Background work

The more information you can give your recruitment agency the better so it’s always a good idea to have the job spec written in full when you approach them so that they have a clear and concise understanding of the kind of person or people you are looking to recruit. Check out their website and have a look at their resources and which job boards they use. You could also look at their social media channels to see if their posts are engaging and if they’re appropriate to the calibre of candidate you are interested in meeting. Most importantly, choose an agency which can demonstrate a good knowledge of your industry and a successful track record in placing candidates in similar roles.

Experience where it counts

At Artisan People, we pride ourselves on our knowledge and experience in finding the perfect candidates for your beauty industry jobs. As a specialist beauty recruitment agency, all of our recruitment is carried out face to face by our Area Managers and we have a team of beauty industry experts, who hand pick all talent using their experience with interviews, role play and training. We regularly place staff with luxury brands such as Dior, Charlotte Tilbury, YSL, L’Oreal, Estee Lauder, Louis Vuitton, Harrods and Hermes so we know and understand how to find the right candidates for these positions.

The right candidates for you

Our talent scouts will pick out the right people for the job so if you’re looking for experiential staff, we will look for high energy, talented people who love drama and the thrill of the stage. If you’re looking for a makeup artist, we will find you someone with a passion for beauty with excellent makeup application skills and who is engaging and understands the need to upsell products too. This will ensure that there is an ROI for each client who hires our temps. Once they are trained specifically in line with your brand values, we can then ring fence them so that they are your brand advocates and able to articulate your brand message. We can also create a bespoke team especially for your brand which can be called upon at any time for special events and launches or to cover holidays and sickness. This way, you will be sure of a well trained team at all times.


The Artisan Talent School ensures that every candidate we select for you has the required skills required to work effectively and efficiently when in front of your customers. With certain criteria that need to be passed before they are job ready, training includes a makeup application and fragrance foundation accredited course which is industry recognised. Basic skin care training is also covered with our in house Learning & Development Managers. Role play and selling skills are integral elements of our Talent School and we bespoke them to your brand with an emphasis on personality and customer engagement.


As if all of that wasn’t enough, the final feather to our bow is our recently launched, exciting new tracking software, PromoPlan. With this clever tool, we can demonstrate at any time to our clients the sales and productivity of every temp. You will be able to measure if the temp is providing a good return on investment and review your KPIs to ensure that they are being achieved.
