What you’ll need to show us:

  • A track record of meeting or exceeding targets.
  • You don’t necessarily have had to have worked in a contact centre before, but you should have worked in a customer service environment where you’ve delivered a first class customer experience.
  • That you are an effective communicator with a warm, friendly, inviting and engaging tone of voice, with the ability to adapt your approach to each customer.
