Anya O'Callaghan

Recruiting Anya O'Callaghan as marketing, education and business development officer is paying dividends for award winning hair salon Spirit Hair Team in Ystrad Mynach.

Anya, 25, who is working towards an Apprenticeship in Social Media for Business delivered by training provider Educ8, was initially employed part-time to organise online training workshops with the company’s suppliers during the pandemic lockdowns.

An “invaluable asset” to the business, Anya’s role is now full time and has been extended to cover business development, recruitment of apprentices, website development, social media marketing and making learning more accessible to apprentices with additional learning needs.

Business owner Janine O'Callaghan is delighted with her daughter’s work which is expected to boost the company’s turnover by 12% this year.
