We need a shiny-new Hero to join our Customer Support Team
We need someone special to join our Customer Support team. You will have to be passionate about delivering great customer service, have a thorough understanding of our products and how they are used. Working with our despatch team you will make sure all orders go out on time, showroom visitors are greeted, and make sure everything is left neat and tidy by the end of the day.
The Alpkit Support Crew is a tightly knit team without which Alpkit would not be able to operate. As part of an award winning team you will play an important role in ensuring our customers are happy. In most cases we are the customers first and enduring point of contact. We believe in support with personality.
We have a relaxed office environment but we work hard. Tea (and coffee for the non-believers) is always to hand, decent music is almost always on but when there is stuff to do, we knuckle down and get on with the job.
If you are still interested after reading that, then email your CV and covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by 26th Feb 2017.
Customer Support is a rich role that touches on every aspect of the customer experience with us. As part of your daily tasks you will; answer emails, reply to social media posts, answer phone calls and live chats, attend to showroom visitors, resolve delivery exceptions and order queries, process returns, contribute to product support articles and media. You will also have the opportunity to attend consumer facing shows during the year.
Depending on experience, starting salary would be £7.70 / hr.
Hours are 9 - 5.30 Monday - Friday with 1/2 hr paid breaks during the day and 1/2 hr unpaid lunch, so that equates to 40 hrs / week.
