Key responsibilities include:

  • building and maintaining excellent client relationships, offering help advice and support;
  • creating briefs, updating support tickets and working closely with the technical team to action work requests;
  • scheduling;
  • estimating and quotations;
  • quality assurance;

  • social media and blogging;
  • generating reports;
  • assisting new business sales;
