Are you looking to change your line of work? Do you have a clear credit and criminal record?

Would working for a large, well-known UK retail banking brand enhance the credibility of your CV?

If you’re a natural when it comes to talking to people and you’re the type of person who recognises and appreciates excellent customer service, we may have the opportunity for you.

These are rotational shifts, 12pm to 10pm working 5 out of 7 days and do include some weekend work. Pay rates are higher for the less sociable hours, however we believe in matching the right person for the job instead of trying to make people fit working hours that don’t fit their lifestyle. So, if you’re interested in this job and have a regular pattern of hours that you can work, we’d love to hear from you as there are so many vacancies for your skills with Lloyds Banking Group over the next few months that we’re sure we can find something that suits you.

Career progression prospects are high if that’s what you’re interested but most important stability of income is on offer with these permanent positions and you’d be working with a fantastic employer.

No previous experience is necessary, just a good knowledge of basic Microsoft Word, Excel and familiarity with using the web will hold you in good stead. Previous customer service experience is important but doesn’t have to be from a call centre background, if you’re used to dealing with customers face-to-face, you have the potential to become an exceptional Customer Service Advisor by phone.

The recruitment process takes a couple of weeks, you’d expect this though as a customer of banking services, you want to know that the people handling your calls can be trusted with people’s sensitive and personal data. Once you pass the vetting process, you have the chance to join a large, busy and friendly contact centre team, taking calls from a wide range of people and helping them resolve their queries. Whether customers call to transfer money, set up a standing order, or simply check their balance, you’ll be ready to provide a professional and helpful service, every time. And you’ll use your computer skills to record your results.

Your work location is easy to get to with it being located on Robertson Street, G2 8JD just a stone’s throw from Glasgow Central Station. There are a couple of bus stops within a few meters of the site on Argyle Street. Local buses, 1, 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E and X4 all service this location.
