A multi-award-winning organisation (27 national and European customer service awards to be exact!), we employ around 350 people in the UK and we are looking to recruit new Customer Service Advisers based at our Edinburgh headquarters.

As a responsible business, we want to make sure we are doing the right thing for our customers, our people, local communities and the environment. To help us achieve this ambition we recently launched our 'Making a Positive Difference' vision.

  • The ability to use your own initiative when required to resolve queries
  • Evidence of the ability to turn negative situations into positive ones, ensuring we deliver great outcomes for our customers
  • The ability to identify the root cause of an issue for customers using factual evidence in order to solve problems, while managing potential objections
  • Evidence of working with a high degree of accuracy and strong attention to detail
  • The ability to negotiate effectively to deliver successful outcomes that benefit both our customers and our business
