Employer in Slovenia

Owner of Mič Styling Hair Salon

Mitja's Story

 “At the salon, our language is our hands and scissors, in other words, it is our work.” With this statement, Mitja from Mič Styling wanted to emphasize that it is skills that count, not knowledge of the language. This is therefore why they made the decision to give an opportunity to a person with international protection. Mič Styling is quite a large company that regularly employs people and has an open work culture and intensive foreign exchange. They made contact with an international protection beneficiary through a special tender financed by Schwarzkopf for financing scholarships for vulnerable groups.

“At the salon, our language is our hands and scissors, in other words, it is our work.”

The person they brought in does not have any formally recognized education in Slovenia, but has plenty of practical experience. She has been working as a hairdresser for more than 15 years and had her own hairdressing salon in Iran. The company is currently arranging documents for her to apply for the workplace training programme for persons with international protection through the Employment Service of the Republic of Slovenia.

This is not the first time Mič Styling has employed someone from a vulnerable group. As part of this employment, Mitja’s expectations of their new colleague in no way differs from what he expects from his other employees.
