  • Process orders, forms and applications
  • And much more!

What are we looking for in you?

  • Minimum 2 years’ customer service experience, preferably in a call centre
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills
  • Time management and organisational skills
  • Problem solving ability and ability to remain calm under pressure
  • A strong customer focus
  • Great attention to detail
  • Sound computer and keyboard skills
  • Experience within the electrical industry an advantage (but not a requirement)
