This role is 100% service desk scheduling.

Service Desk duties = This person will be mainly office based and will take calls/emails from the above customers, investigate the fault, empathise, schedule an engineer in line with service level agreement, relay the cost back to the customer and log the entire process on CRM system.

Although you do not need to be terribly technical, you are needed to wrap that customer in cotton wool, tend to their every need and go that extra mile that you would not normally expect from a typical service call centre.

Typically the calls do not drip feed in, you may have 10 in one hour and scheduling in engineers under pressure can be stressful at times.

Must have someone calm under pressure.

You will be working in a pair with the Technical Manager in their Virtual Network Operations Centre, some engineers work on site and others are in the field.

The key strength that the employee needs is to be very organised.

There are fixed call out times on Service Level Agreements and if these are breached, they have to give money back so scheduling the right engineer to the right call out with the right skills and within the service level agreement is absolutely key.

Anyone who has worked in a team, run a desk and made decisions on their own and can understand technical terminology would be ideal.

Also these calls are sometimes difficult, customers are not happy when their system is not working, and empathy and a clear understanding of their fault, is very key to this situ.

 

Offices are new, modern and trendy.
