Customer Service (Policy Renewal)

Customer Service (Policy Renewal)

Do you have fantastic people skills? Can you deliver a great customer experience? If yes, we have the perfect job for you in our Bexhill office.

A chance to work in a hybrid way: Once you complete your training and can work independently, you can move to hybrid working. This will allow you more flexibility, as you usually only need to be in our office once a week and work remotely the other days. You can always opt to work from the office more frequently if that suits you better.

Working Hours/ Shift Patterns: 37.5 Hours per week, a Monday to Friday rotational shift pattern between the hours of 08:00 – 19:00.

Location: Our fantastic Bexhill office which is next to the seafront and only a short walk away from Collington station.

Training: The first five weeks will involve both theoretical and experiential learning in the classroom. Then, in weeks six and seven, you will move to Academy, where you will apply your learning and begin to assist our customers with the support of our knowledgeable coaches.

Salary: Starting £24,500 plus benefits and the opportunity for further salary progression.

At Hastings Direct, we have a simple ambition – to be the best and biggest digital insurance provider in the UK. Our Customer teams play a huge role in that, speaking to thousands of customers every day, and delivering the high quality insurance service they deserve. Join our Customer Retention team and you’ll play a key role in our business, helping us to retain our customers by understanding their needs, explaining our insurance products simply and clearly, and ensuring they get the right cover.

Your role:

Joining an extremely busy team, you’ll be dealing with customers who have come to the end of their policy and are looking to renew. So, it’s about explaining why their quote may be different from the previous year, making sure they’re comfortable with their new quote, and handling any of their concerns, so they’re happy to stay with us. That means talking confidently about our products, giving them accurate information first time and making sure they understand everything, so they don’t need to call us back.

What we offer:

Join us and you’ll find a different way of doing things. We call it the 4Cs. So, we focus on getting it right for our colleagues, customers, company and community.

As one of our colleagues, you’ll be helping to drive our growth, so in return, we’ll give you all the support, training and development you need. That includes initial in-house training on our products and systems, as well as taking live calls alongside an experienced colleague, and regular, on-going training tailored to your individual needs. Not to mention plenty of recognition and rewards, and the scope to voice your ideas and put them into practice. And the chance to develop your career across our business, with opportunities for secondments, or to become a coach.

Benefits you’ll receive:

  • Up to 5% annual discretionary Bonus
  • Hybrid working (1 day per week in the office with the option to do more depending on your preference)
