Debbie came to One O One after leaving her previous Convenience Store Manager role which she had worked in since leaving school.
A few years back Debbie thought that she would try a completely different job and went to work for Scottish Gas. She did give the New job at Scottish Gas a fair go but when an opportunity arose to come back into retail with a business well known to everyone in Glasgow but one she had never heard of as they launched their first Edinburgh store, Debbie jumped at the chance to help One O One put down retail roots in a new place.
Travelling to Glasgow for a couple of months to learn all the new policies and procedures, Debbie worked with experienced managers and teams who were very knowledgeable and great people made her want to carry on this journey.
Debbie made some strong relationships when she started and has kept in touch with her management colleagues on a regular basis even though she is further away, running our only Edinburgh store. Debbie said, “I also received great support from everyone at Head office which has helped to make my wee shop a success and continues to deliver great standards and results, week after week since the store launched last February. Management at One O One can be very rewarding as long as you show a determination to succeed and a willingness to learn and adapt.”
In Debbie’s words, “My team at Stenhouse Cross are in a good place and going from strength to strength , The future looks bright for me and I really am proud to be part of One O One Convenience.”
