Supporter Care Officer – Ration Challenge Call Centre Opportunity!

  • Act for Peace is a leading humanitarian aid and development agency
  • Use your customer service skills to make a difference
  • Work with an award winning fundraising team
  • 5 days per week casual from April – end June 2018
  • Location: North Sydney/Milsons Point – brand new modern creative space

We are seeking some talented, passionate, inspirational and fun call centre phone gurus to become part of our award winning Ration Challenge campaign for 2018. In 2017 more than 14,000 people took the Ration Challenge and lived on refugee rations to raise money and awareness for communities threatened by conflict and disaster. They ate the same as a Syrian refugee living in a camp in Jordan and raised over $3.2 million dollars!

Come and join us in this year’s campaign and use your customer service skills and talents to welcome, coach and keep in touch with our Ration Challengers over the phone.

In this position you’ll work as part of our team to provide exceptional supporter care through outbound telemarketing and some written communication via email. The successful team members will have exceptional supporter care skills, solid customer service experience in both inbound and outbound query handling over the phone, excellent interpersonal skills, a fun and friendly phone manner and the ability to connect and inspire others.

Experience using Salesforce or other cloud based platforms is desirable but not essential as full training will be provided. This is a 5 day a week casual position from April until the end of June and will be based in our modern and creative call centre in North Sydney/Milsons Point (close to both train stations), including a brand new office with bike racks, showers, multiple hang out areas, an onsite cafe and more! The hourly rate will be negotiated depending upon the skills and experience of the successful candidate. Eligibility to work in Australia will be essential.
