What you'll do
At first direct we are here to help our customers live more and worry less. That's why we're available 24/7, 365 days a year. If our customers want to pay a bill at midnight, no problem. We don’t mess about with automated systems, every customer gets through to a real person, every time. We’re literally always on. Working as a Customer Service Representative you’ll answer calls from our customers, take them through security and deal with their requests. These requests could be anything from setting up a standing order, paying a bill or opening a Savings Account. It's important to have amazing discussions with our customers. During these conversations we want you to take a genuine interest by building rapport and asking open questions so you can establish the customer’s banking needs and discuss what products and services are right for them.
