Customer Advisor

You'll be helping customers who are having problems with their services. Each call can be very different. You might be helping people to understand their bills, getting them back online when their connection goes down or talking them through our products and how to use them.

It's not an easy job. There, we said it. Customers can be frustrated or angry that they've lost their connection or their bill is higher than expected. So it'll be your job to calm the situation, ease the tension and get the problem solved. We also use lots of different systems so you'll need to be confident with technology.

You'll need to be someone who is:

  • able to get on well with people
  • confident to have difficult conversations
  • respectful of other people's point of view
  • not easily upset or offended by others
  • able to think quickly and be calm in stressful situations
  • genuinely motivated to help people and solve problems

We'll give you all the training you need. When you start you'll get 12 weeks training on our products and services, systems and processes, and handling real customer calls. You'll have people around you to support you, regular coaching and training updates to make sure you're always at the top of your game.
