CUSTOMER SERVICES - IT'S A PEOPLE THING

It's not about what you know. It's who you are. As a Customer Service Advisor you'll be doing one of the most important jobs in our business looking after our customers. Which means building relationships, getting to know what they do, how they do it, and most importantly, how we can help them do it better.

In this role you'll be responsible for delivering a best-in-class service whilst using product knowledge and expertise to maximise upselling opportunities. Your days will be spent communicating with customers on the telephone, via email and responding to website requests. You'll manage an order from enquiry to post-hire feedback, taking ownership of the customer journey and building relationships with regular customers. You'll enjoy thinking on your feet and using your initiative to ensure we deliver the very best experience for our customers and that we continue to improve our service.

  • Exceptional communication skills including negotiating and influencing. You'll have the ability to engage and build relationships with both internal and external customers

  • Comfortable using your own judgment and initiative to make decisions in line with our company policies and pricing structures

  • An effective team member with a highly supportive, collaborative approach

  • A flexible and adaptable approach, you'll enjoy a varied work day in a fast-paced operational environment where you'll manage multiple tasks, deadlines and targets whilst maintaining high standards of accuracy

  • A commitment to continuous improvement, puts forward and acts on suggestions to improve processes and service levels

  • A good level of computer literacy in MS Office packages. You'll embrace learning new IT systems and enjoy making the most of technology in your job role
