Our client is currently recruiting for Emergency Call Handlers to work in their Bicester office, taking 999 ambulance calls. We're looking for people who want to make a difference and are looking for something other than the normal 9-5 job. Previous office or NHS experience is not required, but good customer service skills must be demonstrated. Successful candidates will receive substantial training and investment, after which they will be taking calls from the public for this service using the in-house computer systems with ongoing support. There will be further opportunities to progress.
