  • Building quick and empathetic telephone rapport with field engineers in pressurised situations, helping them to resolve time critical issues. 
  • Assisting customers with replacement product quotations during technical support conversations for quick issue resolution. 
  • Providing engineering information to office colleagues to support them in dealing with the technical complexities of their role.
  • Contributing to technical related projects and training as required. 

What we offer

Our employment package is attractive. We offer a structured induction programme and further training relevant to the job role, including a high standard of internal technical training and external programmes and courses. We offer competitive salaries, a 5% employer pension contribution, and following a successful probationary period, you become eligible for 25 days holidays + bank holidays, life assurance cover, an employee assistance programme, a company sick pay scheme, bonus related to our sales, a generous long service scheme, a cycle to work scheme, funded social activities and plenty of free onsite parking, tea and coffee. We have a great team who work well together and provide a welcoming and supportive environment.
