Are you keen on a career where you be interact with customers on a daily basis? This course provides people with the skills and qualifications needed to impress a potential employer in the sector.

Customer service really matters. Gone are the days when the success of a business came down to two things: product and price. In fact, the way businesses look after their customers has become one of the most important drivers in today’s competitive climate.

But what value can employers put on someone who’s able to give their customers a better experience? Well, it’s believed that it’s cheaper to keep existing customers than find new ones. And it’s also thought that some customers would even pay more if that have a better experience. So there’s no denying that good customer service skills can make a big difference to any business.

During this two-week training package, we’ll teach the skills needed to thrive in this role. From the importance of being the public face of the business you represent, to understanding how to listen to customers. The training we provide will also equip you with knowledge around administration and the working environment. Basically, in a couple of months, you’ll have everything you need to impress an employer – and then some! Here’s a closer look at the elements of the training package.
