For our customers, you'll be more than just the friendly face and voice of Santander. You'll be a listener and problem solver. Whether you're helping someone with a simple cash transaction, aiding them with technology in the banking hall, transacting with them over the phone or protecting your customers against fraud and scams, you'll never know what the next challenge will be.
What's not in doubt is that you'll have plenty of support. Life in a branch can be busy, varied and challenging, so we're a close-knit team.
You'll be totally flexible in your approach and comfortable in undertaking a broad range of activities. This means not limiting your time and focus on one particular element of your role. You'll thrive on the variety this gives you and take satisfaction for operating in a multi-skilled environment. You're the eyes and ears of our business after all.

- Acting as the first point of contact for customers in branch or over the phone
- Assisting with day-to-day transactions, queries and servicing
- Answering customer calls into our contact centre
- Building relationships and finding solutions
- Developing your knowledge of services and products to help our customers
- Identifying new ways to improve the customer experience
What you'll bring.
- Proven ability to deliver outstanding customer service either from a face to face or a telephony background
- The ability to communicate effectively with customers to truly understand their needs
It would also be nice for you to have.
- A real desire to go above-and-beyond for customers
- Effective team working skills with a flexible, can-do approach to work
- Openness to a broad range of activities even if outside of standard expectations
- Ability to grow, adapt and change accommodating business needs and priorities
What else you need to know.
- The role is based in our Sunderland branch.
- This is a full time role, working 35 hours across Monday to Saturday across the hours of 8:00am - 6:00pm
- Given the recent impact of the Coronavirus outbreak we will be conducting all interviews via telephone or video-conference where possible
