Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) –  Paisley18 October 2017
This job primarily is dealing with the first point of contact for employees and businesses dealing with the British Red Cross, the contact is phone and email based and very fast paced. The Finance Office was the first resolution team across the business to the queries in regards to the HR system and because of this maintained up-to-date knowledge of the product and the service changes.
