  • A genuine passion for delivering outstanding customer service
  • Have the ability to listen and to understand what the query is by asking the right questions, then resolving them for the customer

  • Experience of working within a savings team in an operational environment at a small bank or building society preferable
  • Strong knowledge of all savings regulations and legislation which directly impact savings administration activities, e.g. Anti-Money Laundering, Know Your Customer, Financial Services Compensation Scheme etc.
  • Excellent communication skills – written and oral
  • Have good PC skills. These are essential as you'll need to navigate around different systems quickly and efficiently whilst speaking to customers.
  • Be a great team player

Key Responsibilities

  • Handling all telephone and written (email, secure message, web chat, internet) enquiries from both prospective and existing customers
  • Ensure that every customer interaction has a positive outcome - making sure you do the right thing for our customers is key to our success.
  • Updating customer records with details of any contact from them
  • Reviewing applications which fail account opening checks and contacting customers for additional information where appropriate
  • Ensuring all savings activities follow the Bank’s policies and procedures
  • Undertake appropriate training to develop personal knowledge and skills on the main savings administration activities
  • Maintain and develop strong customer service relationships with savers
  • Identification of improvements and changes to the savings customer experience and administration processes
