The Requirements

Join us as a Telephony Customer Service Representative in Southend on Sea

  • You’ll become the first point of support for our NatWest customers in one of our telephony teams
  • This is your chance to help us make banking simpler, more responsive and personal
  • You’ll match your amazing customer service with your motivation to develop and succeed with us
  • We’ll support your personal development with training to achieve the industry recognised Professional Banker Certificate within the first two years
  • You'll start on a competitive and flexible reward package of £18,775 (pro rata for hours worked), and after a great first year, we'll put this up to £20,025

What you'll do

Whether it’s carrying out day-to-day banking transactions like paying bills, or helping our customers identify products and services that are right for them; you’ll be on the other end of the phone.

We'll look to you to let our customers know their options when banking with us, so they can make informed choices.

You'll help our customers by:

  • Making a positive impact on every customer call, efficiently and effectively having the right conversations with them to meet their needs
  • Problem solving and building excellent relationships over the telephone, and providing a friendly, timely and professional service
  • Building real connections, being dedicated to finding the right solutions for customers

The skills you'll need

Previous experience of working in a customer service role is ideal. Contact centre experience is an advantage, but not essential.

What is vital is your dedication and passion when it comes to helping our customers. You’ll need to be a real people person, with excellent listening skills and communication abilities.

Resolving the complex problems won’t faze you as you’ll have built a fantastic knowledge of our products and services to help answer any number of customer queries.

You'll also need:

  • The determination to go the extra mile for our customers every day to provide that truly personal service
  • Good organisation skills and the ability to multitask (as you'll be navigating different systems and processing information when talking to our customers)
  • The desire to learn and develop your own skill set, and good keyboard skills

What else you'll need to know

We’re here for our customers, whatever the time of day or night, so you’ll need to be flexible and commit to working a rotating work pattern.

The Centre is open between the hours of 7am and 11pm Monday to Sunday, and your shifts will be allocated on a rotational basis between these hours. You must be fully flexible and able to commit to the full range of hours.

You will be required to work a Saturday or Sunday each week but not both.

Bank Holiday working is a feature of this role.

We’ll discuss your hours in more detail with you during your interview stage.

You'll enjoy a comprehensive training programme, and on-going coaching and support to enhance your development. When you're ready, we’ll help take your career to the next level.

How we'll reward you

You’ll start on a competitive reward package of £18,775, your package includes the chance to join our retirement saving plan, and to choose whatever protection, healthcare or lifestyle extras you want from RBSelect, our fully flexible reward programme.

Visit our reward and benefits page for more information on the benefit packages we offer.
