At British Gas, we share a common purpose to help our customers today and secure energy for tomorrow. As a Customer Service Advisor at our Edinburgh call centre, you could play your part. You’ll be joining a team of people from many different backgrounds who are united in living our values, doing the right thing for customers, keeping things simple and being extraordinary together.
You’ll be responsible for resolving a range of enquiries from our residential customers politely and efficiently – whether that involves arranging the repair of a pay-as-you-go meter or replacing a lost meter card.. You’ll take ownership of each call, getting to the heart of the query, deciding the best course of action and providing the kind of service that earns our customers’ trust. At the same time, you’ll be promoting our groundbreaking products such as Smart metering and Hive remote heating control, helping our customers manage their energy consumption and make savings on their bill.
Everyone who calls us needs us, and some of our customers are very vulnerable. As their first point of contact, you’ll make a difference to their lives, so it’s a job with real purpose and satisfaction where your compassion for customers and your passion for providing great service will be all important. If you’ve got outstanding interpersonal skills and take pride in giving your best, our comprehensive twelve weeks training will give you the knowledge to deliver a first-class customer experience.
On top of a competitive salary, there is a performance related bonus, pension, share schemes, 23 days paid holiday plus bank holidays, company discounts and a host of flexible benefits which can be tailored to suit your lifestyle - retail vouchers, gym membership and healthcare products to name a few.
In short, our call centre jobs offer the opportunity to work with people who will inspire you. People who are genuinely enthusiastic about our values. People who share your high standards and your commitment to customer service.
British Gas is a leading energy company and part of Centrica, a top 30 FTSE 100 company, so there will also be a wealth of opportunities for career progression.
We are also interested in any volunteering or community work you may be involved in.
Office location: Scottish Gas, Number One Waterfront Avenue, Edinburgh EH5 1SG
