Customer Relations Assistant, Maidstone
Our Adult Education centres host tutors and students from Kent Adult Education and Kent Training and Apprenticeships, who come to study a range of subjects from IT and languages to arts and crafts, like pottery or silversmithing.
We are looking for somebody to join our Maidstone team in our new venue at Oakwood House, Maidstone. The role will be based in Maidstone but, on occasion, you may be asked to help cover one of our other centres.
Your role will be to act as the main point of contact between us (Community Learning & Skills / Kent Adult Education) and our customers. You’ll be providing information and guidance on our courses and services, enrolling people onto courses, managing student data, setting up classrooms for teaching and ensuring a safe learning environment. There will be a mix of telephone, email and face to face communication. The role is interesting and varied and we need somebody who can work under their own initiative.
You should have good customer service, sales and interpersonal skills as well as the ability to collate and manage information. You should have a good working knowledge of Microsoft Office and be willing to learn to use our bespoke management information system. You will possess Level 2 or GCSE Maths and English or equivalent.
The post requires a flexible working approach, and we endeavour to be flexible in return. The working pattern will have variable hours and, because we run evening classes, will include one evening attendance per week (up to 10pm) during term time. There may be some Saturday attendance too.
This post is considered by KCC to be a customer-facing position. The Council therefore has a statutory duty under Part 7 of the Immigration Act (2016) to ensure that post holders have a command of spoken English/Welsh sufficient for the effective performance of the job requirements. The appropriate standards are set out in the Job Description/Person Specification.
