Future prospects

Dependant on performance the successful candidate may be offered a permanent role within the company as Customer Support Technician or within the Design team. This would be a similar role, however, it would have more responsibilities. Several of our staff started as apprentices and have moved into project management, digital marketing, and our management team.

Things to consider

This is a computer-based role so you will be on a computer for long periods. Once trained you will take a large volume of calls and will need to always be friendly and professional to our clients. We are a technical company, but customer service is at the forefront.

As per the above there will be an initial need to be flexible about whether working in the office (Gov rules permitting) or from home, so an appropriate space and environment will be required for this.
