Bob started his career in 1995 working for The Link and then transferred over to O2 when they purchased the company. Bob came across as a Senior Branch Manager and he wanted to stay in his role, as he had heard that O2 was a great brand to work for.
What Bob enjoys about his Store Leader role is the variety, but he has also had the opportunity to try different roles and get involved in projects that have been really interesting and have helped changed the way that we operate as a company.
Commenting on why he has stayed with O2 for so long, Bob says, “It is because of the people I work with and it is a great place to work. No day is the same, so there are loads of interesting things happening all of the time. You never stand still and you get a lot of satisfaction from doing a good job – be it with the customers and providing an excellent service for them, or seeing your team develop and move into other roles within the company. It’s knowing that you have played a part in that.”
If he had to give one tip to anyone who is thinking about applying, it would be: “You don’t need to know all about the latest phones and tech, as we can help you gain the product knowledge you need. We just need people who want to be here and do a great job, and enjoy working for a fantastic company.”
