We create innovative solutions that revolutionize and improve the life of professionals in the sector of classical music. muvac stands for well done, reliable, creative and respectful. Our work is characterized by a deep respect for the arts and illustrates that we understand the business of classical music and the needs of the professionals.
**Knowledge of the classical music sector and the realities of musicians and ensembles is therefore required for this position.**
We are looking to recruit a new colleague to provide customer and administrative support.
This is initially a part-time role from 32 hours per week with the possibility to grow to full time.
We are looking for a positive colleague who is well-organised, hard-working and enthusiastic, as well as friendly and approachable. You have a keen eye for detail and an eagerness for planning and organisation. You should enjoy working with an international team with the ability to both collaborate and work independently.
You will have two main areas to focus on: first is customer support (helping our users) and second is office administration (providing administrative support to the team).
We see our customers not as clients but as partners, working closely with them, building trust and meaningful professional relationships over time. We understand customer support as a key and very important part of the overall experience of working with our platforms and historically, this has been the part that our customers value the most, granting us with the highest marks.
We take support as a way to help and to measure the overall customer happiness. We use bad experiences our customers have to improve our products and processes, and turn that experience into a positive one. Our support team is a vital connection to our customers other members of the team don’t have, and we use that link to determine how to make our products better. We let people vent, and we understand their frustration. We stop and think to ourselves, “How can I make this person’s experience better?” Then if we can, we do it.
What’s required is a will to make people’s day better, to teach them how do to things, to surprise them with speed and accuracy and become leaders in the support industry. Ultimately, as you will manage the communication with our users, you should be able to act as the face and voice of our brand.
