Courtney Walker

Courtney Walker (19) has secured a Bond Street role with Nails Inc, the UK's most successful luxury nail bar chain for 3 days a week, whilst still juggling her studies for a Diploma in Beauty Treatments at Level 3 at Barking & Dagenham College.

I just love it", was how Courtney described her job as a manicurist/pedicurist which she started in early April 2013. She studies for her Level 3 Diploma for the other 3 days a week. "Monday is my only free day to catch up with all my course work with but this practical experience is really worth it. "My tutors at BDC have been really helpful", she added "they have given me so much advice about the industry. They inspired me to apply for the Nails Inc role.I was persistent and just kept applying and then when I was told I had the job it was amazing." Courtney, who also qualified as a painter and decorator at BDC before transferring over to a beauty therapy career, was named as Beauty Student of the Year 2012.
