Of all the agencies I signed up with, Hays is by far the best. Rebecca in Belfast patiently listened to my preferences and concerns, kept me updated, and went above and beyond to find the perfect role for me.

Customer service talent is in high demand – with calls and queries not only increasing in number, but in complexity. While a growing customer base is always positive, it’s also creating a surge of pressure on businesses and their staff, causing talent attrition to increase. Organisations are having to react quickly to combat the effects of the talent shortfall, which has resulted in an increase in vacancies.  

The COVID-19 pandemic proved a turning point for customer service, with people increasingly turning to digital channels for logging their queries. This digital focus is only going to increase, with the most advanced organisations at the point of being able to leverage real-time customer behaviour data to deliver a simplified customer experience proactively and pre-emptively. 

It usually starts at £21,000 for a customer service advisor role, but this is dependent on location. As a customer service team leader in London, you would be looking at a typical salary of £31,500 and as a customer service manager £52,000. 

With call volumes growing and queries becoming more difficult to resolve, the skills required in customer service now require a more strategic focus. Although the tools and channels used to problem-solve are now more digital in nature, customers still want personalised care, and therefore empathy, collaboration and communication are just as important to success as speed, agility and product knowledge.
