Our Customer Services team is the first point of contact for our residents who need the Council’s help or advice, so this is a really important role. The successful applicant will be working in a fast-paced and busy environment. You will play a key role in supporting our residents, staff and councillors by providing advice and support on our services on a daily basis, over the phone, by e-mail and face to face in our reception.

  • Have good written and verbal communication skills with an eye for detail.
  • Know how to maintain databases, manage cases like applications and complaints and analyse information.
  • Are comfortable using technology and Microsoft Office.

This is a full-time role; however, we would consider applications from those looking to work 3 days (minimum 22.2 hours per week).  Applicants must demonstrate they meet the criteria of the role as described in the Role Specification.
