MEMBER EVENT: The Breadth & Reality of Call Centre Work

3:00 pm
4:00 pm

Our members are often looking for a job which is: flexible; gives a chance to help others; allows for variety and problem solving; offers a chance to work in a fun team; offers security. Not all call centres are script following, high target environments and for many of you, this might just be a good place to come and ask questions and dispel a myth or two. Michael King is the CEO of Senior Response - a call centre which specialises in providing services to those people who need a call centre to deal with 'inbound' enquiries (ie - customers calling with queries, problems and questions).

We’ll cover these key points:

- The breadth and reality of call centre work

- A day in the life

- Skills needed: a desire to help others; problem solving, and more

- Typical salaries and working patterns

- What to look for in a call centre
