Through regular investment in market leading technology, we are paving the way for courier services to be more intuitive, more capable, and more responsive in real time than ever before!

Due to the nature of the role, we really do need you to already have Customer Service experience, ideally via phone and email, and not be fazed by a fast paced, changeable and pressurised environment. Any calls you take are processed on CitySprint's online booking systems, so any previous experience of similar systems is a big bonus! But if not, don't worry! You'll have a supportive and experienced team behind you all the way, helping you to gain the knowledge you need to be fantastic in this role.
