Beauty Pioneer and Mumpreneaur, Claire Raby, Explains Why A Career Change Can Happen Anytime, Not Just In January

As 2024 unfolds, social media, magazine and TV adverts are filled with ‘New Year, New Career’ and ‘New Year, New You’ messages, and as much so many of us seize January as a reinvention month, one businesswomen wants professionals to know that a career change can happen any-time, not just in month one.

Amica Aesthetics Academy and Clinic, an esteemed aesthetics skin clinic and training provider based in the North of England, proudly reaffirms its commitment to supporting individuals navigating career transitions into the thriving world of aesthetics. 

Contrary to popular belief, a career pivot doesn't require waiting for January, it also doesn’t mean it can’t be possible if not accomplished in the first month of a new year either; it's about embracing change whenever the time feels right. Which is a mantra Amica founder and businesswoman, Claire Raby stands strongly by; 

"While the start of the year often prompts reflection on future aspirations, career plans shouldn't be confined to January," says Claire.

She continued: "Personal and professional growth is an ongoing journey, not constrained by set timeframes. Often the pressure of January can make people feel overwhelmed and under-achieving come the last day of the month and still being in the same job or situation that they started the year, but that simply isn’t the case."

Research indicates that job searches spike by as much as 30% in January compared to the yearly average. People often use the festive season to reflect on their careers and make resolutions for change in the new year.

Claire is a seasoned businesswoman, boasting a wealth of experience in establishing and nurturing successful ventures. Her portfolio includes multiple thriving businesses; Amica Aesthetics, Amica Aesthetics Academy, and Amica Pharma.

With nearly a decade of industry experience, numerous qualifications, and a passion for education, Claire established Amica Aesthetics Academy in 2021 and has since gone on to train over 300 students since its inception. The academy's comprehensive programs ensure personalised attention in small class sizes, cultivating essential knowledge for aspiring professionals in the aesthetics industry.

"The growing interest in aesthetics as a career path stems from its embrace of creativity, innovation, and the growing societal emphasis on self-care," notes Claire, emphasising the industry's steady growth in recent years.

Last year, Claire launched her ‘More than Meets the Eye’ campaign, to help change the perception of the industry against those who seek aesthetic treatments and the reasoning behind it, knowing first-hand that choosing to undergo aesthetic treatments to reduce or improve skin concerns is not one to be considered lightly, but more often than not it increases a person’s self-esteem.

As an esteemed Aesthetics Academy, Amica offers a comprehensive range of courses and resources designed to equip individuals with the skills and knowledge required to excel in a career in skin and aesthetics. Amica provides tailored guidance and a supportive community to facilitate a successful career change, no matter what time of year. 

And whether individuals are looking for something within the beauty sector or not, the same ethos of doing what’s right for you, is what would carry you through any season or job change in your life. When the moment for a career transition arrives, it becomes a matter of taking that bold leap of faith, venturing into endeavours that align with your passions and genuine interests.
