Role Description

We have a vacancy for three motivated individuals to join the Customer Services team as Information Assistants. The role of Information Assistant is designed to provide an excellent first line support service for IT and Library queries both in person, on the phone and via online channels.  There are two roles available, with one based at the Campus West Library and one based at the Kings Manor Campus.

Customer focus forms one of the core staff values within Information Services and we hold the Customer Service Excellence accreditation. The Customer Services team play a key part in delivering excellent customer support to all our users and all team members spend a high proportion of their work time actively delivering customer support.
