Who are you?

You are organised and efficient and able to cope with repetitive tasks under pressure at times. You love people, you are a great communicator and can talk to anyone and are passionate about doing the right thing – nothing is too much trouble.

Main things you'll deliver

Often the first port of call for our customers, whether that be for information, or to buy a ticket, your job is to make sure the customer has everything they need to travel confidently by train.

As your experience grows, you will become the font of all knowledge about not only the customer's SWR journey, but about key destinations, attractions and London transport.

You will need to be flexible in your approach and not afraid to get stuck in with a variety of tasks as you are responsible for your station and making sure it meets the quality and safety standards our customers expect. Whether this be checking everything is working and safe, to clearing up rubbish, or providing a helping hand to a customer, you are the face of SWR and can make a difference to someone's day.

To help you deliver great customer service we will give you the tools for the job. These will range from the smart technology you will need to offer the best possible up to the minute information about our services to the outstanding training programme that will give you the knowledge to provide customers with the correct ticket for their journey.
