We are looking for an ambitious, people orientated person to join our team as Customer Service Advisor Apprentice. You will need to have excellent communication skills, a desire to provide exceptional customer service and the ability to build relationships with a vast range of customers from all walks of life.

Responsibilities

The Jaguar Land Rover Retailer Apprenticeship Programme is geared toward training the right candidate to become a qualified Customer Service Advisor. But what does a Customer Service Advisor actually do?

A Customer Service Advisor deals directly with customers and acts as a go-between between the customer and Service Technicians, scheduling vehicle service work. They will handle administrative and customer relations aspects of service department operations. Some of the duties include:

  • Interpreting customer concerns and comments and liaising with technicians
  • Booking/scheduling vehicle services
  • Liaising with customers about any additional work required
  • Estimating time and costs associated with repairs
  • Handling customer complaints
  • Responding to customer requests
  • Tracking the vehicle through the workshop

Please note, the Customer Service Advisor role varies slightly by employer based upon the specific needs within the location.

Embedded within your training are the Jaguar Land Rover global training materials. This is the grounding for your future development within the network and our Learner Management System, Excellence will guide you through your short, medium and long term career path.
