Contact Centre Advisor
Contact Centre Advisor
Contract Type: Permanent – Full Time
Hello, we’re the Pension Protection Fund. We protect millions of people in the UK who belong to defined benefit pension schemes. Our members rely on us to look after their pensions if their employers collapse and the pension schemes cannot afford to pay what they promised.
We are currently looking for a Contact Centre Advisor to join our award-winning team and become part of the future of providing excellence of service to our members.
Our Contact Centre Team is at the heart of what we do here at the PPF, offering excellent customer service to the members who call in to speak to us. As the Contact Centre Advisor you will gain the opportunity to join an organisation that values and respects their members and always has service at the forefront of everything we do.
As the first point of contact in response to our member’s queries you will be entering a world of variety, not only on a daily basis but as each call raises a different query you will be immersed in helping our members overcome what can be confusing, difficult or challenging times. This means that we do not work off of scripts, you will need to be able to show empathy and have a calm, natural yet professional communication style; explaining complex issues in a clear and engaging way.
Our Contact Centre Advisors are required to have recent contact centre or customer service experience predominantly delivered by telephone. There is a minimum requirement of GCSE Maths and English (or equivalent) at Grade 4 (C grade) or above. Experience of working in the financial services industry would also be beneficial, but is not essential; full training will be provided by our dedicated team of professional trainers. You will be joining an environment that requires absolute dedication to the member and also understand that whilst we make it clear this is not a sales role, we do have clear service level objectives that need to be met.
We will consider applicants looking for Part Time hours across 5 days per week or even a possible job share as well as full time applications. Our contact centre operates Monday to Friday.
