We are looking for enthusiastic and committed part-time telephone advisors to join our Customer Services team to deal with enquiries coming into our contact centre, provide guidance and information, and process customer requests covering a variety of services on behalf of the Council and its partners.

You will have recent experience of providing information and advice to the public in a busy customer service environment, preferably telephone based, and be capable of handling a range of situations with tact, diplomacy and empathy.

You will have excellent listening and communication skills, the ability to converse with all types of people, a polite and courteous attitude, and a commitment to providing excellent customer care.
