Loreburn will provide your equipment and you will not feel alone between taking calls, emails and enquiries via digital channels and working with your team, colleagues as well as others, you’ll be in touch with lots of people.  Our company catch up days will ensure you always feel part of Loreburn and your team are only ever a Microsoft Teams call away!

  • Demonstrate excellent customer service experience
  • Can demonstrate high levels of resilience with the ability to plan and organise yourself to deliver your outcomes within a fast paced environment
  • Are comfortable with the degree of lone working the job entails managing your time and work tasks – you’ll be trusted to get on with things, and will need to work efficiently
