What does an average day look like? Now there’s a question!

  • A typical day will see you working up to 8hrs per day in a lively & vibrant environment. With an hour for lunch and breaks you always have time to catch up with friends, grab something to eat or perhaps pop into the shops.
  • You will start your day signing into your systems to make sure you are ready to take your first call of the day.
  • You will talk to a variety of customers with different needs. Some may want a quick update or to provide further information, others may be frustrated and may want to challenge the process.
  • Some days will be quiet with rest periods between calls, and other days could be busy with everyone wanting your help at once.

What do we need from you? People skills and confidence in your PC skills!

  • A good attitude and the ability to interact with lots of different people.

This is also where the nerves kick in, and mistakes may happen, but don’t worry, we expect that. We make it our responsibility to look after you with full support from experienced members of the team on hand to help.
  • Days away from your desk to support in the local community, perhaps painting a hospital wing or cleaning a beach are some of the favourites.
  • Winter and summer parties, usually held in fabulous venues. Free food & drinks!
