Customer Service Officer

Our Work

We handle enquiries and complaints from the public through phone, email, etc.  We manage calls and enquiries from all walks of life every day.  Being different from other customer service centres, 1823 will provide you with sufficient opportunities to get familiar with the organizational structure and functions of the government as well as specialist knowledge related to different government departments.  Comprehensive on-the-job training will be provided to you.  Working with 1823 will enable you to acquire customer service skills, enhance your ability to communicate effectively and broaden your horizon. 

We work on shifts, including on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays as well as overnight shifts (5 days’ overnight duty in around 2 months).  If you would like to take rest days on different days, working on shifts may fit you better.  In order to ensure that round-the-clock service be provided to the public, you will need to work as scheduled in the event of inclement weather such as during typhoon and black rainstorm.
