What is a customer service practitioner?
Customer service practitioners are normally the first point of contact within a business or organisation. They are responsible for delivering high quality service or products to customers. Customer service practitioners could be working online, on-site or travelling to homes and businesses.
Customer service practitioners work across all sectors of industry and in all sizes of organisations, but ultimately their key responsibilities are likely to include:
- Understanding customers
- Understanding the organisation
- Following rules, regulations and legislation
- Using systems and technology
- Communicating effectively with colleagues and customers.
Employers will set their own entry requirements in order to start on this apprenticeship, but typically requires five GCSEs at Grade C or higher.
On completion, apprentices will be eligible to join the Institute of Customer Service as an individual member at Professional level.
