Processing of warranties and service request.  Conducting Health & Safety Inductions e.g. staff, visitors and contractors.  Reporting on daily incident e.g. near misses, hazards and other Health & Safety responsibilities also assisting with Account invoices queries, e.g. GL coding of site invoices and etc. What is your favourite part of your role? Knowing that a concerned or worried customer e.g. customer with a problem toilet, shower or faulty tap is happy and satisfied, their problem is sorted ASAP and we look after the labour charge.  This ensures our customers TRUST in the QUALITY OF OUR Product and Service. What advice do you have for someone who wants to do a similar role to you? Always greet with a smile, a simple sorry and thank you can usually make a positive difference. Focus on a can do attitude, even if you’re not sure what to do, apply humour within the team and always treat people with up most respect.
