Now the role:

As a Customer Service Consultant you’ll be the first point of contact for our customers. People call for a variety of reasons from sprained ankles to life threatening Illnesses and you’ll need to treat each call with the same level of care and compassion as the last. It can be challenging at times.

Helping you grow your career at a company that’s all about its people.

Giving you the freedom to work from home and maintain a great work life balance. However if you’d like to come into the office more often, that’s fine too!

  • Support customer enquiries through both inbound and outbound calls, ensuring each customer has a great experience whether it’s the first call of the day or the last
  • Pre-authorise or decline treatment in line with Bupa policy coverage, responding with empathy at all times
  • Accurately maintain our customer database, ensuring all conversations and outcomes are recorded

  • Great listening and communication skills with the ability to respond with empathy
  • A mix of flexibility and resilience to deal with a variety of enquiries
  • Confidence using a PC and the ability to multitask though we have a range of support tools designed to help you on the phone with customers.
  • An enthusiastic, positive attitude with a real desire to help others
