Contract Type: Permanent – up to 20 hours per week across lunchtime hours


Our client protects millions of people in the UK who belong to defined benefit pension schemes. Their members rely on them to look after their pensions if their employers collapse and the pension schemes cannot afford to pay what they promised.

They are excited to be able to recruit for Contact Centre Advisor’s to join their award-winning team on a part time basis working up to 20 hours per week covering the lunchtime hours.

Their Contact Centre Team is at the heart of what they do there, offering excellent customer service to the members who call in to speak to them. 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 they do.

As the first point of contact in response to their 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 their members overcome what can be confusing, difficult or challenging times. This means that they 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.

Their 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 their dedicated team of professional trainers. You will be joining an environment that requires absolute dedication to the member and also understand that whilst they make it clear this is not a sales role, they do have clear service level objectives that need to be met.

They are looking for individuals that are looking for a part time position, this position will be covering core hours between 11.30 and 14.30 and there is an option to work a few additional hours either side.  Their contact centre operates Monday to Friday only.
