About the Role
Join us as a Customer Service Representative and you’ll spend your time taking calls from our customers about everything from insurance quotes to policy renewals and complaints. But ours isn’t an average call centre. What makes us different is that we truly understand what matters to our customers – and we’re committed to doing the right thing for each and every one of them.
So instead of being heavily target-based, success here is measured on the experience you offer customers and how you make them feel. It can be fast paced – but we’ll ensure you’re up to speed with our products and industry leading approach, so you’re empowered to resolve every call in the best way possible.
Due to Covid, you may be required to work from home depending on the government updates. You will be asked about your capability to work from home during your telephone interview.
Whether you’re joining us from a similar role or looking to kick-start your career, you’ll need to:
Share our passion for providing stand-out customer service
Be an excellent communicator, both written and verbally, with good attention to detail
Have a strong work ethic and relish the opportunities for self-development
Be passionate, proactive and comfortable working in a busy, buzzy environment

Our Aztec West office
There’s plenty to enjoy at our lovely office in Aztec West. It’s a buzzing, collaborative space where teams work hard and have a great time doing it.
