Nominations are now open for those who think they have the metal to become the President of the Fellowship for British Hairdressing.

The ultimate organisation within British hairdressing, with the role of President being as important as it is both challenging and busy.

As Fellowship’s current President, Karine Jackson, is entering her final year in office, nominations are now open for the next potential leader to put their name forward.

One successful candidate will go on to follow in the footsteps of Joshua Galvin, Andrew Collinge and Beverly C MBE, as President of one of the most important bodies in British Hairdressing.

The voluntary role requires substantial commitment, with regular meetings with the Council, sponsors and wider industry representatives. The President works closely with the Chairperson to plan and organise events, oversee the Fellowship magazine and awards, and promote both the Fellowship and British hairdressing as a whole.

Prospective candidates will be invited to meet with the Fellowship Council in November, to explain how they plan to endorse and enhance the Fellowship. Then the Council decides on a President-Elect, who will be put to the membership at the AGM in April. If there is widespread disapproval in regards to the choice, members can reject it and the Council will be tasked with finding a more suitable nomination.

There is still plenty of time for potential Presidents to throw their hat in the ring, with the final deadline of Friday, October 26.

Any interested party should contact the Fellowship office on 01295 724579, or by emailing to request a job description and more information.
