CATI Interviewing Team Andrea Hayes Team Leader

Andrea joined DJS in October 2016 as a telephone interviewer. She started off working on short consumer projects and quickly moved over to more in depth, complex interviewing, due to her previous call centre/telephone experience. Andrea has interviewed for clients, such as Ofqual, Kingston, and Bargain Booze, to name a few.

Andrea has a wealth of experience on the telephones and customer service. She has worked for large companies, across many sectors including, finance (American Express and Lloyds), as well as successfully running three public houses, whilst bringing up a family.

All her working life, Andrea has worked in people-based industries. Our colleagues and management quickly noticed her ‘can do’ approach, which has led her on to assistant manager/manager positions - an obvious
choice for DJS to take Andrea on as Team Leader.
