We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and experienced Customer Service Advisor on a full-time, fixed term basis for our busy contact centre, based in Alexandra House. This position is offered on a fixed term contract for a period of 6 months with the potential to be extended.

Contribute to the provision of high quality, professional customer facing services.

Skills and Experiences

About You

You should have extensive customer services experience – within a contact centre or in a face to face environment and you will ideally have experience of local government, housing association or local government housing experience. 

This role is dedicated to the repairs and housing team and as a result, we are ideally looking for someone who has previous experience in dealing with customer queries relating to repairs, rent enquiries, reporting and other housing related enquiries. 

Although this position is predominantly based in the Digital Contact Centre, flexibility and adaptability are a must as the role will be based across the whole of customer services and you may be expected to move to other services or locations (including face to face centres) in line with business requirements.
