The Role

Your responsibilities will include taking a variety of interesting and challenging calls, some of which include making various changes to our customer's accounts and answering complex queries whilst keeping to a first call resolution. Here at SSE we pride ourselves on delivering excellent customer service and stand by our core values making us a great place to work, which is what makes us one of the biggest energy competitors out there. We're not just an energy company, we're here to listen and provide an excellent range of products and services, as well as saving our customers money where we can.

Our call centres are open 8am - 10pm Monday to Friday, 8am - 6pm Saturday, and 10am - 5pm Sunday. Our full time Advisors work 37 hours on a variable shift pattern within these hours. To be there when our customers need us, we ask for flexibility to work up to 2 late shifts per week and weekend working is required.

Our part time Advisors work from 9.30am - 2.30pm, Monday to Friday. A small degree of flexibility could be considered with these core hours after training.

You'll be adaptable to change, as this is key to your success as well as the growth of our business. You'll think on your feet, listen to our customers, display empathy and ensure you meet the customer's expectations. You'll work individually, as well as being part of a larger team in a fast-paced environment where you'll thrive to be the best.
