Q: What do you like best about what you do today?
Charlie: I like talking on the phone with customers. That’s the favourite part of my day. I leave work at the end of the day feeling really satisfied that I’ve engaged with some really lovely people. I try to ask the right questions because that can help me identify what people really need, and when people can express that, they feel like they’re heard, they’re listened to and they are valued. The ability to turn a frustrated customer into a happy and satisfied customer, gosh that’s such a reward!
Q: What is one piece of advice you would give to your younger self?
Charlie: Learn to have a bit of a laugh at the flaws that we all have. Learn to accept them. Just be the best person you can be right now. Whatever you want to achieve, you will do so in time. You don’t have to be perfect now, you can grow.
Charlie is currently a Customer Service Team Member with TSA Group. His passion for life and his work shines through in everything he does.
