We have a full-time vacancy for an experienced Customer Services Administrator at our busy hire depot in VERON, 89510, France (7 kms from SENS, Burgundy). The business has 6 full time staff.

Candidate Profile: You must be really excellent at and enjoy delivering great customer service, be methodical, organised, have an eye for detail and possess very high standards.

In addition, as a busy operation, there is much general business administration work to achieve too so you should be a well organised general office administrator who is comfortable dealing with all day to day office tasks.   

The position is principally office based so you must possess excellent computer skills, a relaxed and comfortable telephone manner, be self-starting and self-managing.

  • French language an advantage but not essential.
  • You must be a non-smoker (we do not allow smoking indoors or outdoors on site).
  • You must be entitled to work in the EU (All UK and EU citizens are eligible but if you are not an EU citizen, please explain how you are eligible to work in France in your application).
  • You must have a full, clean driving licence.
  • References from at least two previous employers will be required.

Employment Terms:

  • Full-time, permanent position.
  • Social security declarations will be made in France and salary paid in Euros.

  • Salary by negotiation depending on age and experience. As a guide, the Nett Salary (take home pay) is expected to be in the range of €1300 - €1800 per month.  
  • Annual leave allowance 25 days per year.
  • Possibility of on-site accommodation by negotiation.
  • Start date: Immediate/by arrangement.
