Customer Services Assistant
It’s all about delivering excellent customer service. If you’re looking for a role that will offer you variety, the opportunity to meet people, and an amazing location to work in, we’ve got the job for you.
What it's like to work here
Created as the perfect house in the perfect setting, Berrington Hall has many secrets for visitors to uncover. In this, one of Henry Holland's first houses, visitors can explore the family rooms and see how the servants moved around the house unseen by the family and guests.
The interiors include Biaggio Rebecca ceilings, fine period furniture and there are some pieces on display from the Wade Collection. The house is surrounded by Capability Brown's final landscape. Though it has a slightly austere exterior, the house has delicate interiors and a homely, welcoming feel.
What you'll be doing
Our commercial work is essential to our continued funding. Whether it’s the car park, visitor reception, retail shop, or our café or restaurant, you’ll be part of the operations team, responsible for ensuring that we continue to deliver excellent customer service every day.
You’ll be responsible for ensuring the presentation of our commercial areas is spot on, engaging our visitors, making them feel welcome and keeping all areas clean and tidy. You’ll be responsible for working across all areas of the operations team, providing support to the teams as needed. You’ll tell our visitors about the amazing work we do and what their money is funding.
