A snapshot of your role
This is a dual role:
1) PROJECT MANAGE the implementation and installation of software at client sites
2) TRAINING YOUR CLIENTS to use the software.
In this role you will have plenty of face-to-face client contact and you will need to have very refined customer care skills as well as patience and the ability to communicate persuasively (and calmly) with your clients who will need software training but who have a low IT knowledge base.
It’s a lovely role in a lovely friendly family owned business where staff tend to stay for years. The role itself is varied as you will work on several projects for different clients at any one time, and you will forge trusting relationships with your clients. T
