As well as dealing with incoming calls efficiently, accurately and promptly, you’ll need to make some outbound calls and communicate with them in writing too.

What you need to bring is a methodical, yet flexible approach, great listening, learning and multi-tasking skills, the ability to connect with everyone you deal with and lots of enthusiasm for selling our products.
