It's an exciting role that will require a jack of all trades approach and a strong ownership mindset. You'll have a dynamic variety of tasks on a day-to-day basis and face challenges that often require a unique solution.

As you and your team deal with members and their queries, you will gain a valuable, keen understanding and knowledge of their needs. This is crucial information which can be used to optimise our department and organisation as a whole.

Our main mission is to help our members save time and assist them in running their business smoothly. As one team, we act on data to discover, create and deliver what's best for our members.

  • Assistance with escalated queries from members which require a more hands on approach and attention to detail.

What makes you a great fit:

  • You’ve spent at least three years in a team leading job with customer service experience - phone-handling teams with multitasking - handling calls, chats and emails.
  • You’re organized, pragmatic and capable of leading an interdisciplinary team; we’re after someone who’s not afraid to take the initiative and remove any blockers wherever necessary. Our goal is to provide a quality leading industry service and assistance to our members that leaves them delighted.
  • You’re comfortable working in a fast-moving company where priorities can change and processes may need to be created from scratch.
