You do not need any formal qualifications to work as a Customer Service Advisor, your natural people skills are much more important in a role like this so just a good knowledge of basic Microsoft Word, Excel and familiarity with using the internet, competent typing capabilities and an excellent telephone manner will make you a great fit for this position.

A strong background in customer service, telephone support or call handling will be advantageous but if you're used to dealing with customers whether it is face-to-face or over the phone in any capacity then you have the potential to become an exceptional Customer Service Advisor.

The recruitment process starts with a criminality and financial probity check alongside an assessment day. The assessment day will consist of a call listening exercise, data entry and aptitude tests, but the entire process can take a couple of weeks as you will expect. It is important that customers know that the people handling calls, enquiries and administration duties can be trusted with sensitive and personal data and so the criminality and financial probity vetting process to ensure that candidates have a clear credit and criminal record is an important step.

You will be given full classroom based training lasting 2-4 weeks, this training will usually take place Monday to Friday between 9:00am and 5:30pm. Following successful classroom training you will graduate into handling calls with modest targets and full support before progressing into the role fully on a rotational shift basis.

Finding the right balance between your work and your lifestyle is really important but we know it is not always easy, that is why we want to draw special attention to the rotational shift pattern associated with this role. A rotational shift pattern will include a combination of mornings, afternoons, evenings, days and weekends on a 4-week rotational basis. The main thing to remember is that your shifts can fall anywhere between the hours of 8:00am and 9:15pm and you must be able to work any shift between these times.

This award-winning mobile network provider is all about the customer and their experience, as a Which? Recommended provider for 8 years running, the business has gone from strength to strength launching into new services, markets and customer propositions. Being able to include a period of time working for this fantastic employer on your CV will be excellent for applications into a similar role with other employers but it may not be necessary, high performers will often find that they are invited to stay on extended contracts in the same or a similar role after the initial contract has expired.
