Good communication skills, the ability to work independently and as part of a team will be essential. You will be comfortable with a range of technology and able to pick up changes to our processes quickly. You will be keen to learn, developing your skills and sharing knowledge to provide guidance and solutions. 

Ideally you will be educated to A level (or equivalent) with Maths and English at GCSE grade 4 or higher (or equivalent) or be able to demonstrate relevant experience working in a customer focused environment.

We are committed to providing competitive employment packages that support your well-being. You will have access to a benefits package, including leading health facilities, staff discounts and travel schemes, along with a generous holiday allowance and highly attractive pension scheme.
