Are you looking to work for an award-winning, top employer in Sussex? Are you resilient, positive and able to problem-solve?

I am recruiting on behalf of a company based in Burgess Hill for a home-based Technical Customer Support Advisor. Working 37.5 hours a week, the hours are 7am-4pm. This will include Saturday and Sunday every week, and 3 other days in the week - these 3 days will be flexible. Although this is home-based, you need to be based within 2 hours of Burgess Hill as you will be required to go into the office still for training, reviews and updates. Sometimes this may be at short notice.

This role is a temporary, ongoing contract, which will be paid weekly through Pier Recruitment.

Training will take 6 weeks and be based within the company offices in Burgess Hill, Monday-Friday 9am-5pm. Once completed, you will be given all required hardware to be able to be based at home.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a leading company. You will be fully supported and be able to take advantage of the various benefits they offer when onsite, such as a gym, subsidised restaurant and free parking.


Duties will include:

  • Taking inbound queries via telephone and email in relation to a specific product
  • Dealing with distressed patients - as these are calls are out of hours, they will often be emergencies
  • Offering support and advice or escalating where necessary
  • Processing orders
  • Extensive database management
  • Building strong working relationships
  • Other duties as required

Experience required:

  • Emergency call/situation trained
  • Strong technical mind
  • Customer focused
  • Confident making decisions
  • Patient and able to calmly deal with distressed people
  • A background in support for either a product or a service
  • Be comfortable working alone
  • Excellent communication skills and telephone manner
  • IT literate
