Customer Service Adviser
At Direct Line Group we support thousands of customers with their insurance needs each and every day. Whether it’s through simple amends to their policy, talking through their options or just helping to put things right. Our Customer Advisor roles are at the heart of what we do!
Our salary package starts from £22672 (includes 9% pension contribution), plus an opportunity to earn an additional bonus up to £4,200 per year for sales roles.
What you’ll be doing:
You may already know about our brands and some of the Insurance products we offer, but in our Leeds team they focus and support customers with roadside recovery or with a claim when something may have gone wrong!
You’re going to be taking calls, helping with queries, keeping them safe on the roadside or supporting them through a claim which is upsetting for many. You’ll need to be a great listener; be able to adapt your approach and most importantly just be there to support our customers when they need us most.
Some days can be a little bit busy, but the team are absolutely outstanding, and we’re proud of our DLG team culture.
What we’re looking for:
No matter what stage of your career you are at we offer full training and support in these roles, so you really don’t need experience. But if you do have experience there is plenty of opportunity for future development and learning.
Our Roadside Rescue shifts can often be between 7am and 10pm Monday to Sunday. We pay additional shift allowances for consultants that are required to work unsociable hours so that we are here when our customers need us. In these roles you’ll work shifts across these days which we'll share more about during your application. However, with our mixed model way of working you'll have great work life balance.
Your training will be over 8 weeks, some will be onsite in our Leeds office, giving you additional support from your trainer and a chance to integrate with your team, and the remainder you will complete at home.
Once your training is complete, you’ll be in the office 1 week in 6, a great opportunity to be with your team, and the rest of the time you can ditch the commute and work from home. All you'll need when working from home is an internet connection and a quiet space to work. We’ll provide you with everything else, from a tailored training academy to a technology bundle to suit your needs. We are on a transformation journey to The Contact Centre of the Future, which will be customer centric and data driven, therefore it is essential you have computer skills for this role.
