- Explaining fully to customers any faults or repairs found on their vehicle and providing them with clear and accurate solutions.
- Treating any dissatisfied customers with empathy and understanding and having the confidence to take a positive approach in finding solutions.
- Maintaining knowledge of aftersales products and services, and upselling where appropriate.
- Making sure the customer database is updated and accurate at all times.
- A passion for great customer service and the confidence to resolve any issues that may arise efficiently and in a timely manner.
- Demonstrable computer literacy and knowledge of IT systems and applications.
- The ability to multi-task and be highly adaptable within a busy environment.
- Strong communication and influencing skills, with the ability and desire to explain complex information accurately and concisely to help our customers.
- Strong organisational skills to schedule work effectively, balancing the needs of the customer and the capacity of the workshop.
- Ability to prioritise your workload.
- Ability and willingness to work with defined processes and guidelines.
- Good core administration skills to accurately capture customer details to the required standards.
