As a Customer Services Technician, you’ll be involved in all areas of the business and will quickly become familiar with a variety of business processes.

In this role, you serve as the main point of contact for customers and will be their first port of call for any technical questions they have. As well as strengthening your communication skills, you’ll perform a range of technical tasks such as moving databases, running SQL scripts, and debugging websites.

As an integral member of the team, you’ll be treated as a full-time employee with a role that is crucial to the success of the business.
Some of the things you’ll be doing
As the first point of contact, you’ll be communicating with customers on a daily basis.

In addition, you’ll be liaising with all other departments within the business to ensure the smooth running of our platforms and services.
Investigation & Problem Solving
Whether it be a simple query that you can solve quickly or a more complex issue which requires further investigation to resolve, you’ll develop the skillset to identify the root of a problem and realise a solution.
There’s always an opportunity for you to get involved in a customer-facing project or an internal initiative to improve our business processes.
