A Carnoustie woman’s customer service skills have been recognised with a top Scottish award and a luxury prize.

Susan Dunn, who works in the Spar at Carnoustie High Street, was named Employee of the Year at the 2015 SLR Rewards ceremony which was held last week in Glasgow.

The prestigious award recognises Susan as the best employee working in the convenience sector in Scotland.

Susan was presented with a commemorative trophy from sponsor company Mondelez International in the Grand Central Hotel on Thursday, June 4.

She also wins a luxury overnight stay in any one of a number of posh hotels across the UK, complete with dinner, bed and breakfast.

The awards are organised by the Scottish Local Retailer magazine and is a highlight of the industry calendar as it showcases and rewards excellence among the Scottish sector.

Scottish Local Retailer Publisher, Antony Begley, commented: “Susan is a hugely impressive member of staff, with an ambition level to match her work rate and dedication that will no doubt see her become a manager of the future. She is currently a senior supervisor and is clearly very professional and focused. She’s also a community councillor and plays an active role in her community, which has helped her relationship with shoppers. She’s just the sort of employee every retailer is after, in fact.”
