If that’s you, then you’ll love this role.


The offices are based in a modern Technology Centre in the North West but this role is a remote-working role from home, for the right candidate we are accepting applications from across the country as we see remote working becoming a more central part of our business as we move to the next level.

You’ll be expected to liaise with clients such as the BBC, Toyota, National Grid, Chubb, and E.ON to name a few and you’ll be happy to attend internal meetings to keep track of projects that our development team have on the go. It’s an exciting, high-energy environment.

We’re looking for someone eager to learn and progress - so your attitude and ideas are way more important than your experience to date but you’ll have some impressive stories to tell us about how you add real value wherever you've worked.

This role may suit someone who has previously worked as a self-starter or a Customer Success role or within Software Development as this role boasts the opportunity to really be involved with business growth and strategy, as well as having an involvement with software project delivery.

Most importantly, will be your enthusiasm and passion for the business and its service offerings, as well as your ability to inspire, lead and motivate yourself and others around you to deliver quickly, accurately and to the highest of standards at all times.

For the right person, this is a fantastic opportunity and it could shape your career forever. We are looking for someone with previous customer support experience that can get started quickly to make a fast and positive impact. Full support & training to learn the business operating systems and procedures will be provided.

Homeworking is the new-normal now but there may be the occasional period where we get together at the head offices for bi-annual meet-ups. You would be required to have a stable home internet connection of at least 10mbps to ensure you can work online for this position. This position is a part-time role with flexibility and has the potential to grow into a full-time role for the right person - or work alongside other part-time team members.

Your first chance to show us what you’re made of will be your application.

In return for your hard work and commitment, you will be rewarded with a competitive basic salary as well as additional benefits including industry-leading healthcare after a qualifying period.

We look forward to hearing from you.


  • BUPA healthcare
  • Company pension scheme
  • Office parking (if we ever need to meet up)
  • Laptop & phone facilities delivered to you
