The main purpose of a customer service specialist is to be a professional for direct customer support within all sectors and organisation types. You’ll be an advocate for Customer Service who acts as a referral point for dealing with more complex or technical customer requests, complaints and queries.

As an expert in your organisation’s products and /or services you share knowledge with your wider team and colleagues. You gather and analyse data and customer information that influences change and improvements in service.
