My client who is a highly successful global unified communications solutions organisation is looking for an experienced 1st Line Customer /Application support person to join a team of professional and friendly team who support their cloud based virtual call centre solutions

They are looking for curiosity coupled with a desire to make a difference.

They are not looking for people who always have the right answers but instead, those who are willing to find a solution or ask for help if they don't know the answer. Those who will not take no for an answer and are willing to stand up and be counted.

This is not a standard customer Support role as there is a much more than usual technical bias. You will also be able to prioritise ever changing targets and finish what you start.

You must have either a degree or other qualification in a computing related field or be able to evidence an active interest in technology/computing on a personal basis. If you are someone who tinkers and tests and plays around with things then we would like to talk to you.

About the Role:

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. As this is an application Support role you will be interested and be able to easily pick up how their products work and then be able to help customers with issues and configuration requirements. The best bit will be trouble-shooting with them and getting stuck into some challenging problems that you help them to resolve
