Customer Service Adviser Level 1

Your team will be answering customer enquiries for a wide range of services and logging their requests with different teams.

You’ll be supporting people over the telephone, through e-mail and face to face in our customer service centre or at one of our city centre reception points.

There are several opportunities within Customer Services, including Housing, Adult Social Care, Parking and a busy Contact Centre. Work will be varied and wide-ranging to meet the needs of the service.

You’ll have guessed from our introduction, we’re changing lots of things at the moment to improve things for our customers and we know that our people are really important to getting things right.

In some of the service areas we are experimenting with how we do things so one of the most important strengths we’re looking for in our people is the willingness to try new things and to help us to change things that don’t work.

So, if you care about people, want to help them and if you want to join us in shaping Customer Services then one of these roles might be just what you’re looking for.
