Customer Service Representative Apprentice
Our client is seeking enthusiastic, reliable and bright candidates wishing to gain knowledge and experience in frontline customer service.
The Level 3 Customer Service Specialist Apprenticeship that we are offering, will allow you to kick-start your career in an industry that is constantly evolving, dynamic and transformational.
The steps you take will provide you with valuable first-hand experience, knowledge, skills and qualification to help really drive your career forward. We are here to guide and support you every step of the way!
The service team is a seamless extension of the company’s brand, committed to service excellence and passionate about delivering relationship-based service, rather than transaction-based interactions. The company aims to provide high-touch experience for their customers each and every time, personifying what it means to be a trusted advisor in answering questions, solving problems and recommending plans and upgrades that meet customer needs.
The purpose of this role is to deliver exceptional customer experience to consumer and business clients, breaking the mould from the telecom industry’s notoriously poor customer service.
Due to the critical nature of the company’s infrastructure, a Customer Service Representative will need to work both quickly and carefully by providing front line technical support to their customers; turning a potentially unhappy customer into a happy one.
As an Apprentice Customer Service Representative, you will gain the knowledge and understanding required to run through all potential questions and concerns which may come from customers, and to understand how best you are able to help them and potentially rectify their concerns.
