The Role

Our client, an established business in the electrical supply sector, are seeking a Sales Administrator to join their team on a Maternity Cover basis. Working as part of a small team, the Sales Order Processor will be responsible for ensuring customer orders are processed and invoiced efficiently, and excellent customer service to their clients is at the forefront of all their client interactions.

  • Contacting customers to confirm receipt of orders and answer any questions
  • Resolving delivery issues and liaising with the distribution centre
  • Organising invoicing for customer and other administration tasks
  • Maintaining good relationships with customers
