About the role
Based in our Exeter office this is an exciting opportunity to join our Customer Service team within the Life insurance area of our business.
You will be providing an efficient, professional and high quality customer experience dealing with telephone or written enquiries from new customers in our contact centre regarding their protection policies. Guiding our customers through their policy we’ll need you to respond flexibly to customer needs and take responsibility for the resolution of customer enquiries. This is a phone based role with an element of administration in processing the customer’s request.
You will be working 37.5 hours per week (Monday to Friday), your start and finish times will be between 8.30am and 6.30pm on a rota basis.
We will be reviewing all new applications on the 2nd January 2018.
There are permanent and fixed term contract opportunities available.
Previous customer experience would be beneficial but most importantly you will need plenty of confidence and the personality to make a positive impact on our customers. You will take many calls a day, but you see every one as a new challenge and opportunity to deliver excellent customer service.
You’ll need the ability to learn and retain product information on an ongoing basis and be able to explain technical subjects in an appropriate manner for different customers to understand. Once learning and understanding about our products you will then be able to build an excellent rapport with our customers, being quick to understand their needs.
You’ll be a great team player and someone who is passionate to make a difference. You will have a real talent for making customers feel special when you’re on the phone, it’s in the way you talk and just as importantly, in the way you listen. Using your initiative you will be able to solve problems and come up with great pro-active solutions.
While some similar experience would be great, it’s not essential as long as you’ve got a great way with people, lots of enthusiasm and a willingness to learn – then our training will take care of the rest.
