You will be the first point of contact for our customers and will answer all incoming requests for help via, phone, web chat and emails, details of which you will log on the ticketing system. You will decide on the most effective way to manage each request and will ensure that customers are updated regularly via email or phone until their issue/query is resolved.


    This is an interesting and varied role in a company that has massive Global growth visions and for some it is a perfect stepping stone into cloud based technologies which are fast replacing the older technologies.


    Key Responsibilities and Accountabilities:

    • Responding to customer queries via phone, email and ticketing system
