You should have excellent verbal and written communication and IT skills. You will have excellent customer care and call handling skills, with the ability to take ownership for the decisions you make and work effectively as part of a team. You should demonstrate a flexible approach to work, an ability to prioritise tasks and a willingness to learn and evolve with the service as it develops.

An SVQ2/Higher/National 5 or equivalent level qualification is essential.  A Customer Care Qualification is desirable.
