Are you ready for a career?
Do you like variety in your work?
Do you truly believe customers should be at the heart of every decision?
Then consider our award winning claims function here in Ipswich as your next career opportunity. You’ll join an energetic Travel Claims department based in Ipswich Town Centre, just minutes from the train station.
You will be first point of contact for our customers reporting travel claims in their time of need. This could be anything from flight cancellations to theft. Sometimes our customers become ill or injured whilst on their travels, so you’ll support our customers through these times of need so being truly understanding and empathetic is very important for our customers.
When you join AXA you will learn all about travel insurance and over your career with us you will learn more about general insurance which will help show you what other potential opportunities this could lead to across AXA UK.
Every role is important to the success of our business and making sure we are there for our customers when they need us. That means you could start your journey dealing with post queries or straight on the phones helping our customers, but it all matters.
Travel claims is not easy, it’s tough sometimes so you will need to demonstrate a high level of customer service with a desire to do the right thing for your customer and excellent problem-solving skills. We represent our brand every time we answer the phone so brand awareness and business acumen is crucial.
We also need you to be adaptable to change quickly, who knows when the next volcano will erupt!
Our contact centre is open between the hours of 8.00am - 8.00pm, Monday to Friday and Saturdays between the hours 9.00am-5.00pm. We run shifts to cover all of these times so you must be able to commit to shift patterns.
Our core AXA values are a must:
• Putting our customer first. They are our future.
• We want you to have courage and bravery to be able to make the right decision and challenge us where you think we need to improve!
• Integrity is our compass. We need to trust our selves and each other. We need to trust our judgments in order to make the right decisions.
• One AXA – we are stronger when we work together. You need to be a team player.
We want you to have self pride in what you do and what you achieve so a passion to get things right for your customers is essential.
Empathetic and understanding, you’ll have communication skills which are second-to-none and the ability to build relationships with customers.
You should also have:
• Experience in working as part of a team in a frontline customer service role, ideally in a claims or office environment.
• A professional approach to customers and colleagues.
• Excellent computer skills.
• An inquisitive nature.
• A strong proactive and pragmatic approach.
• Ability to effectively manage your own workload and prioritise effectively, whilst maintaining an excellent level of accuracy and attention to detail.
The start date for this position will be the 03rd of June.
