CUSTOMER SERVICE JOB AT MARCUS TODAY

WE ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE IN A CLIENT SERVICES ROLE – FULL OR PART TIME

Marcus Today is on the lookout for two experienced full-time or part-time (3 days a week) client services professionals to join our close-knit and friendly team. We are based in Cheltenham (Bayside) Melbourne.

Unfortunately, Riley is off to America on a three-year sporting Scholarship, an opportunity he can't refuse, forcing us to replace him.

The Client Services Officer (customer service person) will be on point looking after Marcus Today Members along with Chichi and Karishma.

We are looking for anyone with energy and interest and whilst we will post this job advertisement more generally I would like to appeal to you our Members, even if you are currently retired, to think about applying. Bob retired five times – four of them from Marcus Today (that's a lot of gold watches Bob!)

In the past, we have had great success employing mature Members in this role that not only have an understanding of the newsletter already, but have a naturally patient and polite approach to dealing with our most prized asset, our Members.

Whoever you are, if you think this role will suit you we are very keen to hear from you. We are just as happy to consider two people in the role and possibly two people working three days a week each and overlapping for a day (Wednesday?).

About Us

Marcus Today is a financial services company, producing one of Australia’s leading stock market newsletters. We are in a highly scalable business. Apart from subscription products (the Marcus Today newsletter) we also manage funds (approaching $100m under management) and offer educational courses. Founded by respected stockbroker and market professional Marcus Padley in 1998, we are entering an exciting growth phase over the next few years.
