The Role

As a British Gas Home Service team member, you'll be taking a range of inbound calls from customers who need us most. We are looking for individuals that are passionate about delivering outstanding service to our customers and stakeholders. We would like people who enjoy conversing with customers, listening and problem solving to put the customer needs at the heart of what we do. We all play a vital role in energising a greener, fairer future.

What you'll be doing

Customers may be calling with a boiler breakdown, no heating, an appliance repair, or a water leak or maybe they are calling to renew their insurance policy with us where sales and retention play a key part of the role.

Solving for all our customers is our priority. Whether that's finding the most suitable appointment for one of our skilled engineers to attend, working to resolve customer appointment and account queries and complaints or providing options to your customers on ways that we can help look after their home. Your voice will be the first voice a customer hears when they contact us with their emergency or need help and assistance with their insurance policy.

Naturally you should and have clear, empathetic, and calm communication skills both written and verbal. You'll need to be digitally savvy to maintain secure, accurate customer records across a wide range of internal systems. We welcome applications from anyone with the right values and behaviours and an absolute passion for customer service and confidence to promote our extensive homecare product range.
