We have a fantastic new job opportunity for a Customer Service Advisor / Contact Centre Agent who has a professional and confident telephone manner, with the ability to ask probing and clarifying questions.

As a successful candidate you will join a service that provides free, high quality debt guidance to Customers throughout the UK.

Working as a Customer Service Advisor / Contact Centre Agent, you will handle incoming telephone enquiries from customers needing guidance on a variety of areas.

This will all be captured on the Customer Record System with accurate notes and the result of the call. As a Customer Service Advisor / Contact Centre Agent, you will be assisted through this by a Team of experts and Managers who will coach and help you remotely but with time you will be able to work on your own with support available as required.



As a Customer Service Advisor / Contact Centre Agent you will receive Client based training (virtual) that will equip you with the skills to be able to navigate the areas of specialist guidance options and you will mainly deal with Debt, Managing Money, Homes & Mortgages and Benefits.
