CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVES

About the job
Are you a naturally happy person? Do you believe in spreading the good vibes far and wide? If so, you're definitely EE. Join our Contact Centre family as a Customer Service Representative and you'll find yourself surrounded by like-minded individuals who enjoy solving problems and enhancing customers' lives every day.
It's a role that's as fun as it is varied as you take calls from all kinds of people with all kinds of questions. Whether they'd like a bill explained, a payment issue resolved or a contract upgraded, it'll be down to you to listen to them, understand their needs and come up with the perfect solution to suit.
It won't always be a walk in the park. Meeting challenging targets, staying positive and polite on every call and supporting the odd frustrated customer are all part and parcel of the job. But if you can bring the patience, enthusiasm and people skills it takes to put customers first and help us achieve our ambition of being the best for service, the rewards are 100% worth it.
