You will be required to follow our Renaissance Learning UK Covid regulations, in conjunction with government guidelines, whilst working from our office.
You will be responsible for taking incoming calls from our customers and resolving a variety of customer queries. You will have outstanding interpersonal skills and an excellent telephone manner. You must be able to handle your time efficiently and keep calm under pressure. There may be instances where you’ll be required to help out on our online chat platform too.
Working hours for this role is 37.5 hours per week at £10.85 per hour. The Harvest period would run for 3 weeks with the possibility of longer depending on workload. There will be 3 training days from 17-19 August, and a trial day on 24 August to shadow the Customer Service team and make sure all systems are working correctly before 1 September when Harvest begins.
At Renaissance our mission is: ‘To accelerate learning for all children and adults of all ability levels and ethnic and social backgrounds, worldwide’.
Many of us choose to work at Renaissance because we are driven by this mission. Inherent in a mission that strives to serve ‘all children and adults’ who represent ‘all ability levels…and backgrounds’ is the need to recognise the importance of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in our culture, in our work, and in our products.
