We are a multinational company, more than 800 people work in our office in Budapest.
We are hiring new colleagues who speak foreign languages: German, French, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Turkish, Czech, Russian for Service Desk Agent positions to help foreign customers via phone and email. This is not a sales job, you won’t have to sell anything!
When you start working you will participate at a 3 week–long training to learn the basics of information technology and to get to know your new colleagues. This training is paid as if you were working (full salary).
When you start the job you can always turn to your mentor with any questions, he or she is always there to help you.
We have several career opportunities, after spending some time at the Service Desk you could become team leader, service manager, mentor or trainer.
You will see that the atmosphere is great, we have colleagues from several countries. If you work in the French team, you may meet people from Belgium, France or even from Mauritius. Of course in the Dutch team you will mostly speak in Dutch and English.
It is a great opportunity to meet people from foreign countries, make friends and to improve your language skills at the same time. Hungarian knowledge is not necessary for this job as everybody speaks English in our team.
The Service Desk Agent job is about helping foreign employees in their own language via phone and e-mail.
For example there is a French/German speaking employee who calls because he forgot his Windows password, you will need to generate one and give it to him/her. Another example is when the customer does not receive e-mails in Outlook, your task is to take over his PC and solve the problem. There are procedures to follow for every case, you will have the necessary knowledge after completing the 3 week-long paid training, even after the training you can always turn to your mentors with any question. The clients who call us are employees of large corporations working in an office abroad.
We cannot publish the name of our company in social media and on this page because of our internal policy, however once you filled out the application form, you will receive detailed information about the job via email. (Company name, salary etc.)
