Barcelona: Join Our Team - Part-Time Customer Support & Business Operations Co-ordinator - Afternoons

Released 26th April 2023. (1 Positions Available. Afternoon Hours. 4 hours per day Monday to Friday. Please only apply if you are available long-term)

Are you a self-starter? Well, read on!

Play a valued and key role with a growing online e-commerce retailer. 

We’re currently a 5 person team with some team members based in Barcelona and others working remotely. The business mainly serves the health and wellness space. We manufacture and retail a large range of physical products. We have one of the best reputations in the industry for both quality and customer service. The business has been running for over 16 years, and it’s time for us to expand in our own market and into other markets - so we need extra hands, stat! 

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

E-commerce businesses require a huge mix of skills and activities. The business is looking for a customer support person and daily business operations co-ordinator who is willing to learn the customer side of the business from the ground up. This will mean becoming an expert in the customer service functions.

Here’s what your day would look like:

  • Answering calls, emails and live chat from customers, helping them to choose the right products and smoothing out any issues they might be facing
  • Processing orders and managing parcel logistical operations

It's not required for you to have experience in any of these areas. If you do - that's great (especially if it's UK-based). But what we want most is someone who is switched on and ready to learn. 

WHAT ARE THE DETAILS?

For the first few months, you’ll get to train in customer support, one on one, in Barcelona. Doing some hands-on work together to begin with means you can transition to working at home or from a co-working space on your own at a later stage or stay put in our Barcelona office with us! Great for those wanting to work from home!

Our team works Barcelona hours 9.30am-6.30pm. 

Although the hours are part-time, this is a long term role. You’re not just looking for a job; you’re looking to build or expand your customer service skillset and be a key member of a growing business. This is for someone who wants to learn all the gritty details of making an online business thrive from the customer service and operations side. You’ll be an integral part of our growing company, so we’re looking for a minimum 12 months commitment. BUT, we want this relationship to be so successful you will be happy to stick around much longer than that.

Earnings will be above average.  Afternoon role is 4 hours. The shift time varies (depending on your availability). Earnings will start at €800-€1000 per month (depending on experience). After initial one to one training, this is a remote working contract for a company based outside Spain. Great for working from home or you're very welcome to continue working with us at our co-work space!
