  • Be a mentor and role model to junior team members.
  • Lead the shift when the team leader is not present.
  • Handle escalations and complaints within your tier and provide support to Team Leader.
  • Manage inboxes and delegate cases.


  • Team player with superb written and verbal communication skills.
  • Previous experience in a customer service environment or account management is preferable.
  • Proven ability to communicate complex technical problems in "customer-friendly" language.
  • Ability to think outside of the box and find creative ways to solve situations.
  • A working understanding of vacation rentals is a plus.
  • Confidence in decision-making and owning your cases.
  • Previous experience working with Salesforce CRM is a plus.
  • Previous experience with G-Suite.
  • Well organised with the ability to multitask and prioritise workload.


  • Compensation: 165,000 - 180,000 ZAR.
  • Enviable company culture – we've put time into getting our work culture just right.
  • Employee discounts – at heaps of restaurants, shops, gym memberships, cinema tickets, and more.
  • Enhanced Parental Leave – Family comes first. We offer great parental leave to spend time with your new child, regardless of your gender.
  • Pension - We provide a pension scheme for all permanent employees, in line with government requirements.
  • Laptop – For business use.
