    We know that when people look for new roles, base salary is one of the really important things they look at. Maybe also bonus or a commission payment and that’s it, the total package. Or is it?

    A fond farewell

    When thinking about leaving, my initial thoughts are sadness. I absolutely love my job here at The Lab.  Since joining O2 four years ago, I’ve learnt more than I ever could have imagined. I’ve also had the opportunity to work with some world-class professionals. Without their mentorship I wouldn’t be where I am today; so to those people, I thank you.

    Week in the life of O2 Territory Leader – Day 4

    Firstly I’d like to point out that my diet went super well yesterday….. not. So last night I arrived at my hotel at around 7pm, in Northampton, on the way there from Slough, I nipped into the Paddington shop and bought my daughter a pop-up book of London and sent her a little message from Paddington Bear for bedtime.  If you’ve not seen the film, it’s a must! The service in the store was fantastic and I felt like I had a personal experience that counted.
