Contract Type: Permanent
Closing Date: 27 July 2018
As a Deport Support Administrator you will receive and manage in-bounds calls over the phone and give pragmatic advice to the depot teams. Typical technical advice can include information about new product lines; advice on effective installation (non-electrical only); arranging deliveries of special depot requests and occasionally liaising with other product suppliers as required. Alongside managing the calls you will also help Howdens to continually improve its own manufactured products by spotting themes and trends in the types of issues that you deal with.
This is an engaging administrator role where you are required to build really strong and meaningful working relationships over the phone where your effective listening, administration and problem solving skills will be frequently tested and perfected. You must be an efficient and accurate administrator of data and ideally have a working knowledge of installing typical joinery products for example kitchens and internal doors. Whilst joinery knowledge is helpful to identify common issues, full training will be offered for the right person with the right personal skills and attitude.
