Customer Support Agent

Salary:        £23,500

Location:    Kilmarnock

  • Are you proud when you deliver great customer service and are you interested in doing this in a financial services environment? Nice, keep reading…

  • Do you thrive on communicating caring and supportively, using your knowledge and experience gained in your career and life to date? You do? Things are looking good for you here…

  • Are you a natural at guiding people towards a positive solution? You are? Superb!

  • Now … are you a natural at achieving this when the person perhaps feels lost financially and is in a difficult and often complex point in their life? You’re that too? Wow, even better then…

Would you like to work for a global leader & one of the nation’s largest buyers of debt accounts from reputable high-street banks and other institutions?

As debt solutions specialists, they work with customers to help them resolve their debts. They are currently searching for the right people to join their expanding Customer Support Team and help to continue to deliver the best outcome for vulnerable customers.

Industry feedback has them as “best in class” at what they do.

They have presented at UK Finance’s Vulnerability Academy, chaired by the Money Advice Trust, not once, not twice, but for a record breaking five times!

On top of this, they have been successful as an organisation for more than 25 years (celebrating their 10th anniversary in Kilmarnock this year) and will provide you with the knowledge, tools and skills required to be successful in your role. In return, you’ll be passionate, energetic, and focused on helping them to continuously improve their service to customers.

In March 2022, they moved to a brand new office space

The new state-of-the-art office building is called HALO and is located next to Ayrshire college, which is just a few minutes’ walk from Kilmarnock train station. The space has been designed with inclusivity in mind and enables smart, modern ways of working, so that people can be at their best.

So, if they sound like a good fit for you, then let’s move on to the role details …

What would my day look like?

· Helping customers who are experiencing complex personal circumstances

· Discussing, empathising, and encouraging disclosure of information to allow you to help customers

· Communicating with customers and third parties via telephone, email and letter

· Working together with your team and sharing best practices to continually improve service standards

· And finally, when you need any support…. you’ll get it!

What’s expected of me?

· Maintaining consistently high standards of quality during customer interactions

· Know Your Customer – ask the right questions so that you can take the right approach, not necessarily the normal approach

· Adhere to regulations (full training and guidance will be provided)

· Efficiently managing your caseload within agreed targets

· Comfortable using multiple systems (their own bespoke systems and Microsoft packages)

You’ll be …

· Confident & assertive, yet able to show sincerity & empathy when communicating

· Emotional resilience is an absolute must, and with a patient demeanour

· Willing to share your own expertise and ideas
