Brisbane City Council’s multi-channel Contact Centre enjoys an enviable reputation for providing exceptional service to residents, businesses and visitors. As a result of continued growth, we are now seeking a number of customer service professionals to join our team.

Induction training commences late July 2021 at our Chermside site and will run for 4 weeks with additional on the floor support and ongoing coaching, feedback and development.

What is on offer?

  • a commencement base salary of $63,765 p.a. with 6 monthly increments, based on performance, within the commencement band level
  • comprehensive induction training and ongoing development
  • exceptional superannuation benefits including a 14% employer contribution
  • the option to have a rostered day off every fortnight after induction training 
What we are seeking?

  • a stable work background with experience in providing quality customer service in a high volume, complex customer service environment
  • a commitment to your own performance and achieving the objectives and key performance indicators for the role
  • well-developed communication and interpersonal skills and the ability to maintain effective working relationships with all stakeholders.
  • strong team skills
  • exceptionally good PC and systems skills
  • a positive customer focused attitude
  • the willingness to receive and act on feedback
  • high levels of resilience and the ability to work autonomously
  • a self motivated, reliable and conscientious approach to your work
