We are looking for a highly motivated, enthusiastic individual with excellent communication and customer service skills to join our Customer Logistics team at our Southampton (UK) Training Center. You will be someone who is customer focused yet commercially aware, has experience dealing with hotel and transport bookings, and has a keen eye for detail. Although we are part of a large global organization, we work hard to retain a strong family culture. As part of our Customer Focus team, your role is highly valued within our business area.

  • Providing back up support for accommodation, flights, visa and uniform activities
  • Working with your customer focus team colleagues to gather feedback and help champion and deliver improvements to our customer experience
