Job description

Customer Service Advisor 
Isle of Mann

As a Barclays Customer Service Advisor, you will get an exciting opportunity to act as the first point of contact for our International/Offshore clients. In this role you will provide a confident, professional and knowledgeable service at all times to ensure their needs are met.

Please discuss the working pattern requirements for the role you are applying for with the hiring manager. Please note that as we continue to embed our hybrid working environment, we remain in a test and learn phase, which means that working arrangements may be subject to change on reasonable notice to ensure we meet the needs of our business.

•    Putting yourself in the customer’s shoes and understand how everyday products and services can help our customers now and in the future
•    Using your time efficiently, adhering to personal work patterns and schedules to meet customer demand 

What we’re looking for:
•    Previous customer service skills and experience
•    Good communicator and ability to form professional relationships
•    Ability to effectively plan and organise
•    Effective decision making

Skills that will help you in the role:
•    Previous knowledge/experience within Financial Services would be beneficial 
•    Computer literate and have proficient keyboard skills

Where will you be working?

You will be based in one of our two offices situated in the heart of Douglas, Isle of Man, where you are within 5 minutes’ walk of the shops and harbour. Barclays holds its values at the forefront of everything we do with a firm emphasis on our colleague population and the community we live in. We are a fast paced, future focused organisation with opportunities for development and mobility across Barclays Group.
