Astraline, their in-house call monitoring centre, offers customer-led flexible solutions for a variety of services including Telecare, Lone Worker monitoring, Out of Hours call handling and Anti-Social behaviour.
They are now looking to appoint a Telecare Operator to join them on a fixed term contract for Circa 30 - 35 hours per week.
Through effective call handling, you will deliver an excellent telecare and emergency repairs service to a diverse range of older and vulnerable customers. Demonstrating empathy and appropriate care to their customers, you will respond to and prioritise alarms generated by the Telecare Monitoring System and take appropriate action when dealing with Lone Worker Alarm calls.
So if you have experience of working in a telephone based customer service role then they would love to hear from you! All that they ask is that you are highly flexible, able to work a variety of shift patterns and have strong communication skills, giving you the ability to empathise with vulnerable customers.
Able to work independently and on own initiative, you will operate as a committed team member and be able to cope with competing demands. Those who have experience of working with older / vulnerable people are highly desirable but not essential – what’s more important is a positive and enthusiastic attitude and the willingness to learn.
There are a number of reasons why you should join them – they can offer you a work and home life balance, development opportunities and a great number of benefits including childcare vouchers, free parking, pension scheme, life assurance, an Employee Assistance Programme, Simplyhealth cash plan and free refreshments!
