Working Environment

“We work in a very supportive environment and you can ask questions or seek guidance without being judged”.

Team Huddle

“Every morning my team meets in a huddle to review the previous day and to share their successes and review anomalies. A really good way of energising our team”

First few months at Hellios

Part of our selection process is to integrate people into our business as quickly and as smoothly as possible. Everyone has an induction programme to introduce them to all parts of our business and to understand different roles and responsibilities. A thorough induction is key to retaining our people and helping them to be effective at work.

Here are comments about our induction programme:

“I remember being introduced to everyone on my first day and that made me feel really welcome”

“My induction and training was thorough and there was an assurance that no question was seen as stupid. A lot of time is spent on understanding calls and listening to others before you are involved”

Programme in Service Delivery

“The benefit of the workshop was giving me the confidence to know how to add value to a meeting with my customers."

 

Programme of Workplace Excellence

“The business tools really helped me to calibrate communication with colleagues by recognising that people have different styles and ways of working. It helped me understand why people behave in certain ways at work.”

Career development

One of the upsides of working for a small, dynamic business is that there are lots of opportunities for career development. As part of our organic growth some people’s roles have changed significantly, and they have taken on more responsibility as technical leads, service delivery managers or used their experience in customer service to transfer into product development and business analysis. With a solid foundation in customer service, the sky’s the limit!

Ken Gillings

Technical Lead, Supplier Support Team

My career at Hellios started on a temporary basis and within a short time of joining I was offered a permanent role. I changed my personal plans to take up a permanent role at Hellios and as the opportunities have presented themselves I have not looked back.

I have had lots of input into my current role on one of the customer service teams.  My past experience has been called upon and I have had the chance to lead by example, to mentor and support my colleagues from the outset.

My role has evolved over time and the opportunity to take a customer facing role to two major banks was made available. This was an interesting role especially as it was new and exciting to be one of the pioneers. More recently I was appointed as one of the Technical Leads for  one of our customer service teams and have responsibility for content of calls, quality of service and delivery. I enjoy recruiting and training new hires and being the first point of support for anomalies and issues encountered by my colleagues.

I am attracted to the ethos of Hellios and the desire from the top to deal professionally and to a high standard with our customers and with the people who work within the organisation. In my case, our managers listened, respected and recognised the direction in which I wished my career to develop.

Case Study

 
 

Vicki Fleetwood

Team Leader

My career expectation has been exceeded as my role has changed a lot over recent years. I started in Operations as a Customer Support Advisor and speaking with customers was the best way to learn the business, our processes and how to answer customer queries. I moved role to review the data submitted by our customers and from there took on a technical lead role which requires high attention to detail among other things.

I have also been point of contact for one of our customers in the defence industry and this broadened my knowledge and skills of our service from a customer’s perspective.

Recently I have been appointed Team Leader for one of our customer service teams. I am taking part in a programme of management training to increase my skills and knowledge as a line manager.  It includes some personal coaching and mentoring which will be invaluable.

Hellios is a niche business and I joined with no prior knowledge of its service, but I was attracted to the opportunities of a growing business. I can see others around me who have also moved into areas to which they are most suited.

It is easy to talk to the managers at Hellios and as well as my appraisal, I have also had regular conversations about my preferred career path and destiny.

Personal development

Personal development is high on our agenda at Hellios and we have found one of the most successful ways is to give our people the chance to work outside their usual environment.

Hellios works with The Outward Bound Trust to offer personal development through the outdoors including a weekend residential programme in the Lake District.
