Project Description


We are a London-based Telco who sells advanced services to predominantly small UK businesses and we are looking for an organised and responsible support agent, who is tech-savvy and can guide customers through our products on our website. There is a clear and simple process that you will follow to help customers solve their problems. All support will be done by email and our website – there is no telephone support required.

We are working on "Agile Solutions" which will apply modern Agile techniques from development and apply them to eliminate customer frustrations through customer support and consulting.


You will do two support sessions per day where you will review customers’ needs and:

• Direct the customer to the correct department (e.g. if it was a payment enquiry)

• Help the customer clarify their request (I am sorry it is not working, please could you…)

• Give the customer simple solutions (which they probably would have been able to find on our site anyway)

• Interact with the customer in a friendly, reassuring and professional manner

• Promote any tickets to another department if the problem is beyond your training

When you are not doing the sessions, then you will be working on improvements to our website to assist customers to solve problems themselves.

There is a daily meeting to discuss problems and interesting tickets and a weekly “agile improvement meeting”.
