Are you looking for a challenging new career in Customer Services?

We are a market leading technology and e-commerce company in the UK and growing fast across Europe. What really excites us is the partnership between technology and customer service that enables us to have a positive impact on our customer's experience. Our customers are at the heart of all we do. We get to know them, their needs and aim to find the best solution for each of them. We can do all of this because we have the knowledge, the investment and the people to make it happen.

Are you someone who can resolve queries by quickly understanding each customer's needs and deliver an excellent customer experience from start to finish? Can you take control of a situation and think on your feet to make smart decisions? Can you work in a fast-paced changing environment? Do you aim to exceed targets and not just meet them? Can you work as part of a team to achieve results? If you can answer yes to all of this, then we could be the company for you.

In our Customer service role you will be primarily answering calls from new and existing customers. We offer a competitive rate of pay of 8 per hour with overtime when available at 12 per hour. It's a temporary 12 week contract, during which time if you show your potential, you will be offered a permanent contract with a salary of 16,664, rising to 18,085 after successful completion of a 3 month probation period.

We are a company that looks to give opportunities and career progression to those that not only hit their targets but want to develop themselves. We have open lines of communication for everyone to contribute their ideas and recognise and reward those that support their colleagues to help grow the business.

What else can you expect? We are a sociable bunch, with monthly get-togethers both inside and outside of work and seven days a week we have free breakfast, fruit and hot & cold drinks. There are many of us who like to take time out to give a little back. There are many charities we work closely with, giving our time as well as raising and donating our money. It's something we all get a lot out of and helps build up an even closer-knit team spirit.

Our office is based in Edinburgh, a 20 minute walk from Waverley Station and has regular public transportation connections to Princess Street. We operate a shift rotation between 08:00 - 22:00.
