What you’ll do

In this role you’ll be applying your customer service expertise when dealing with and referring customer queries.

  • Improving processes and procedures to maximise customer satisfaction and efficiency

  • We’re also looking for you to demonstrate:
  • The determination to go the extra mile for our customers every day to provide that truly personal service

  • Strong keyboard skills and the ability to multitask, allowing you to navigate different systems and process information while talking to customers
  • Good organisational skills and an enthusiasm to keep learning and developing new skills

What else you’ll need to know

We’re here for our customers, whatever the time of day or night, so you’ll need to be flexible and commit to working a rotating work pattern.

Your hours of work will be between the hours of 7am and 9pm Monday to Sunday on a rotational shift pattern. You must be fully flexible and able to commit to the full range of hours.

Any hours worked outside 8am to 9am / 8pm – 9pm  will also attract an additional shift premium payment
