Our hybrid working practice is designed to help you achieve the right balance between working in the office and working from home, whilst ensuring that our clients’ and firms’ needs are met.

    The Role

    This is an interesting but demanding role which requires you to be speaking with customers on the phone for long periods of the day, carrying out a variety of important duties such as:

    • Take ownership and responsibility of debt recovery cases
    • Research and analyse cases in order to decide the best course of action
    • Produce and check outgoing letters and documents
    • Undertake telephone collections
    • Engage with debtors to find constructive solutions
    • Deliver tangible results within agreed timeframes

    Are you the right person?

    You may suit this role if you are a proactive self-starter who works well under pressure, who is passionate about customer service over the telephone, learns quickly and can prioritise your workload, taking initiative when required. This is a great opportunity to join a friendly but hard working team who apply a ‘can do’ approach to their daily work.

    We are happy to hear from you if you have the above qualities, whether you have previous experience in a similar environment, are wishing to make a career change perhaps from a retail background or venturing into your first professional job from school, college or university.
