  Job Description

The aim of your role will be to champion the interests of our customers with hotels, our suppliers and within the company itself to ensure that the customer comes first, along with dealing with the more day to day tasks.

The main part of your role will be providing high quality customer service through emails, telephone and social media. Customers will present queries, complaints and problems that need to be dealt with quickly and efficiently with a personal Skoosh touch. While most of our customers complete their reservations online, you will also need to assist those who would rather speak to someone.

We’re a small, personal company so once you’re familiar with customer services you’ll be able to contribute in all parts of the business. We like every team member to look to improve the way the company works with regards to the processes in place, the focus on the customer and relationships with the suppliers as well as in any other way they feel will help.

This is a great opportunity for someone who is interested in working in an independent non-corporate environment.
