Permanent Customer Service Advisor

Directline Group – Posted by AdminManchester, England, United Kingdom

Job Description

What being a Customer Service Advisor involves

Whether working in Service or Sales, our Customer Advisors are responsible for creating the positive experiences that have made Direct Line Group the UK’s leading home and motor insurer. Bright, friendly and dependable, our brilliant teams are focused on doing the best by our customers. They’re the ones with the first-class communication skills we need to be a first point of contact on each call. And they do it professionally and efficiently, every time.

If you’re a flexible and confident communicator, you could find a role where your personality and passion allows you to make a real difference to the customer experience. As the voice of our business, you’ll have the opportunity to represent some of the nation’s best-loved brands. With so many insurers being supported by our call centres, you’ll be interacting with a wide variety of different people – which means no two days will ever be the same.

You could find yourself selling the benefits of travel, pet or motor insurance. Or perhaps you’ll be expertly managing a query, issue or complaint. Whatever your role, you know that when a call comes through, it could be anyone from any walk of life – so you’ll have to adapt your approach accordingly. You’ll follow scripts in certain areas, but as you get to know our customers, your extensive training and natural enthusiasm will allow you to take ownership of your role by doing what you do best – connecting with people and understanding their needs.

Skills and qualities you need

There’s no single type of person that works here. We welcome confident, sociable individuals who bring their whole selves to work. That includes all the life experience, personality and talent that makes them different. Because it’s these things that help us to truly understand our customers.

As we offer training, experience in previous sales or customer service roles is desirable, but not essential. But a few other things we look for are:

  • The ability to communicate persuasively
  • Sharp thinking and an eye for detail
  • Helpfulness and a customer-first attitude
  • Drive and enthusiasm for meeting targets and deadlines
  • PC literacy

If you do join us and you also have friends with these skills and qualities, we have a Refer a Friend scheme that pays you £500 for each of your friends that join our business. It’s a win win situation!

Shifts between Monday – Friday 08:00 – 21:15, Saturday 09:00 – 17:00 and Sunday 10:00 – 17:00

Career benefits and rewards

Rewarding you is really important to us, as well as offering a competitive salary and generous holiday entitlement; you can take advantage of a wide range of benefits. The best part is you can pick and choose the benefits to suit your own lifestyle, but also pass on some of the savings to family and friends. Here are just a few we have on offer:

  • A competitive salary, benchmarked against our competitors, which will grow as you do.
  • Pension 9% of your base salary, you can choose to contribute less or more than this, and anything you don’t wish to put in to your pension you can take as cash instead!

  • Attractive holiday entitlement
  • 50% off our Home, Motor and Pet insurance
