  • Creating, by being innovative and agile

  • Collaborating with our community to achieve successful outcomes.

Our Christchurch based Contact Centre team provide a 24/7 dedicated service to our community and are a key link to our customers.  Due to the nature of our industry, there are times when we need to respond in emergencies and because of this, our team is tight-knit and supportive. We are especially committed to working our shifts and stepping up, occasionally at short notice, to cover unplanned leave or to assist in emergencies.

If you are proactive, flexible and willing to step up when needed and you have a passion for providing outstanding customer service, then please read on…

  • excellent verbal and written communication skills and a demonstrated ability to work effectively as part of a team

  • excellent interpersonal skills, with a positive attitude and a strong desire to seek the best outcomes for both Orion and our customers

  • sound computer skills including Microsoft Word and Excel

  • the ability to prioritise workloads and make sound decisions based on relevant information, while under pressure
