    Hello @Ziadawn

    Thanks for reaching out to us. It is a good question! Unfortunately, I haven't got any expertise in this area. This means I am hoping our wonderful community members see and respond to your post soon! However, in the meantime, I am wondering if these Indeed reviews for working with The Body Shop help? You can find them at https://uk.indeed.com/cmp/The-Body-Shop/reviews?fcountry=ALL&fjobtitle=Consultant. I hope this helps!  :)

    I haven't personally but i know someone who is one. It's not easy, especially if you don't know many people so to get the sales you may have to go out to put the books through the doors which again is hard work. Body shop is brilliant stuff but it comes at a rather high price, which a lot of people may not be able to afford it.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi @Ziadawn :) 

    How are you doing today?

    It's exciting to hear about your potential Body Shop prospects -are you looking at any potential work from home careers? I was in the same boat this year, as I wanted a role that was remote, so I could manage my chronic illnesses alongside work. These websites might be helpful in gaining more information about working from home and what options are available: 
    If you need any further advice or support, please just let us know :)

    I prefer the Bodyshop their cosmetics are in line with my ethics.  At the moment I just want a part time job, and I am going to do this for now.

    Hi guys, I started the process and enjoyed it to a point.  But some people find it expensive or they hate the way its sold to them.  I found that I was expected to be on social media 24/7 .  It would have been fun because we could get free holidays for reaching targets.  But I'm 60 now , and have commitments.  And if you don't have a car to go to where ever a indoor/outdoor stall is its a lot of work.  If I don't get enough sales to cover travelling, and the stall.

    That's a shame to here @Ziadawn I am glad you enjoyed it to that point though! I didn't know if you saw, Avon have now started the process of opening stores in the UK. They have one so far.
