What can ACNT graduates expect when starting work with Blackmores?
ACNT graduates can expect to work with like minded people who are committed to promoting and applying the principles of naturopathy.

Qualified naturopaths are employed in several departments within the company, including Education and Advisory, Professional, New Product Development, Technical, Sales and Scientific Affairs.

ACNT graduates working at Blackmores display a professional approach and demonstrate a high standard of knowledge of natural therapies.

What are the career prospects for graduates?
ACNT graduates who take up a role within Blackmores can find excellent career opportunities in different areas of the company. Our Naturopathic Advisory Service employs qualified naturopaths in either part or full time roles, our Training Department offers opportunities to develop a career in training people at all levels, from healthcare professionals such as GPs, pharmacists, naturopaths, to trade and consumer training. Naturopaths are employed in our Professional Department, in Product Development and technical areas as medical writers and in sales roles. Additional qualifications in business or marketing would also place a graduate in an excellent position to take on roles in other areas of the company. Blackmores employs more naturopaths than any other company in the world.

Blackmores places the highest importance on education, as we strive to motivate people to take control of their own health and wellbeing. We applaud the emphasis of ACNT in providing quality educational programs, to equip graduates with skills and direction that will allow them to lead fulfilling professional lives, to make a positive difference to the health of others, and to assist in establishing natural healthcare solutions as the first choice for all Australians.

An interview with Helena Keenan

Spa Training Manager

What is your position at Voyages?
My title is Spa Training Manager. It is a Group role and I am responsible for training the spa staff on all seven properties in the use of Sodashi Product and the menu of services at each spa. I also assist in the implementation of customer service standards and recruitment.

What can ACNT graduates expect when starting work with Voyages?
The Voyages ethos is to offer holiday experiences that nurture body, mind and soul. They do this by specialising in resorts or lodges that are located in remote and natural environments allowing guests to experience all the natural beauty that Australia has to offer. Hence, our spa menu reflects this with a focus on pampering and relaxation.

Where can they work?
Our spa facilities are located mainly along the Eastern seaboard of Australia beginning at Heron Island and moving up to Brampton Island, Dunk Island, Bedarra Island, Silky Oaks Lodge (in the Daintree Rainforest), and Lizard Island. Lastly but not least we have a beautiful facility at Cradle Mountain Lodge in Tasmania.

What is the quality of ACNT graduates?
ACNT graduates meet with the very high standards expected of our staff. They always demonstrate a good understanding of what is needed when working in a hospitality environment with a strong customer service focus.

What are the career prospects for graduates?
For those who are interested in furthering their career within the spa industry, working within the Spa Division of Voyages is a wonderful way to get a solid grounding in their practice as a therapist but also to gain a strong knowledge in business management. For those who demonstrate the right leadership qualities there are career paths within Voyages to move up to Spa Superviser and eventually to Spa Manager. This experience once gained can take you anywhere.
