We have exciting opportunities to join Leicestershire County Council as a Customer Service Advisor handling Environment and Transport enquiries within our busy Customer Service Contact Centre team on a casual contract basis.

This role is to handle seasonal peak demand specifically relating to school transport enquiries via inbound calls within our busy contact centre. 
This role is both demanding and challenging so high levels of resilience is essential. You need to be able to work at pace and be confident and comfortable when speaking with callers, who will usually be parents or relatives.

Full time positions are 37 hours per week working 8 hours a day anytime between 8:30am-5pm Mon-Thurs and 8:30am-4:30pm on Fridays. On occasion it is necessary to work later than these times dependant on the needs of the business so flexibility is required.
