We need a shiny-new Hero with oodles of outdoor product knowledge to join our Customer Support Team
This hero is the voice of Alpkit and loves engaging with our customers and hearing about their stories. They are warm and relatable and speak enthusiastically and knowledgeably about our products – they aren’t afraid to ask the customer questions to work out the best product for their needs.
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.
