10 May 2016

North Shields

Vacancy Description:-   

Servicing the needs of national customer base
Problem Solving and offering Support to clients
Checking logs for possible problems and proactively solving them before the issue escalates. 
Dealing with the online systems, interaction with clients via the online chat facility and dealing with customer calls and correspondence.

 

Employer Description:-

Low Cost Parcels was formed in 2012 in response to a clear demand for local, customer focused parcel delivery services. As the market continued to expand, fewer national carriers were prepared to offer account facilities at competitive prices to smaller users, or those with a requirement for good local input and control. As a result, Low Cost Parcels has been able to grow very rapidly, and cater for clients whose businesses need access to national services, but require a more tailored and local approach.

For so many reasons, it is not surprising that over a million satisfied customers have been better served via Low Cost Parcels.

All of the above covers the basics and our history, but tells you nothing about our staff and ethos. “Who Are We?” is perhaps best answered by outlining some real quirks. We really enjoy collecting parcels, whether in large quantities from business users, or single items from home addresses. In our market, this is odd for a start! Our staff will bend over backwards, despite having no formal gymnastic training behind them. Old-fashioned customer service is, in our world, still in fashion. We don’t wear flares but we have a flair for pitching price and service at the right level. We don’t hug trees or sit on bean bags, but Head Office reception has airline seats, and if you call in, you can have a drink at the bar!

We are all set for further rapid growth, and extending LCP’s reach across the UK. As member of the Head Office team, you are integral to that plan, helping to maximise the management of collection and delivery services. Your input will complement the organically increasing parcel volume.

 

Skills Required:-  

Good written and verbal communication skills
Good timekeeper
Excellent IT skills

Qualifications Required:-   
5 A*- C GCSE’s or equivalent including IT, English and Maths

Personal Qualities:-  
Ability to work as part of a team and also under own initiative
Mature
Able to deal with possible customer issues proactively and in a timely and professional manner
Problem solving
