Position Summary

We are now seeking to appoint a range of customer service support agents as we strengthen and deepen our relationships with our customers, to focus on dealing with customer enquiries raised via E mail and live chat.

Contacts may come at any stage of the customer lifecycle and will include questions about eligibility for loans, loan applications, servicing, payments details changes and collections activities.

In most cases the nature of queries raised will be routine and predictable and will be capable of being answered largely using preexisting templates (with appropriate personalization)

Part of the nature of the role is to identify unusual, complex or highly sensitive cases and escalate them internally where required for specialist attention.

Such escalations may be because of customer vulnerability or other special need or because of a non-standard set of circumstances, previous service failures or other cases of customer distress.

This is an exciting time to join us at Gain, as we are in a period of transition. A Key goal for Gain is to make our customers service experience better.

This has 2 strands to it

  • Reducing the complexity and frequency of the need for customer contact
  • Improving the ease of transaction and consumer experience when contact is made
  • As well as dealing with routine enquiries the team will be asked to contribute to suggestions for process and system changes to make customer’s journeys easier and simpler.

    The role holder will be skilled at using interrogating and understanding account management systems to identify customer and understand the nature of their account.

    The role holder will respond politely, accurately and in line with house style guidance in everyday British English to a range of written customer enquiries which arrive both by online live chat and email.

    Voice interaction with customers is possible but will be rare. Most Voice interaction will be dealt with elsewhere

    The role holders will work with colleagues and managers to identify and solve customer queries and will be familiar with the limits of their personal authority levels, the location and appropriateness of standard templates and the circumstance in which escalation is required.
