About Zopa

We give our customers a fair deal as standard and our products are built so that we win when you win. We have handy tools to get stuff done and helpful people always at the end of a phone – meaning managing your money is no sweat. We’re built for the future and evolve as quickly as possible, we’ll always listen to what you want, and do our best to change to meet your needs.

We’ve built a bank. But we’re a FeelGood money company at heart.

Job Description

We’re empowering people to FeelGood about their money.
 
We’ve been on this journey since 2004, when we built the first ever peer-to-peer lending company to give people access to simpler, better-value loans and investments. When it comes to money, we think everyone deserves a fair deal, so since we launched, we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of customers to take the stress out of money by building our business on honesty, transparency and trust.
 
Our journey’s always evolving, and we’ve just launched a bank. But a different type of bank – one that empowers its customers to take control of their finances and FeelGood about their money.
 
If you embrace being challenged beyond the norm, aren’t afraid to think differently and are motivated by working somewhere you can really make an impact, you’ll love life here at Zopa.

Zopa has built a team that is delivering outstanding growth. As part of our expansion into savings products, we are looking for a talented Customer Service Specialist to join us in ensuring the best possible experience for our P2P Investors and Zopa Bank Savers.  
 
Your role as a Customer Service Specialist within Investment and Savings, is to engage with new and existing clients daily via telephone, chat, and email. With a clear-cut and thorough approach, you will help our lenders and savers to understand our products and ensure that their accounts are set up correctly. You will be building rapport with our clients on a daily basis and gathering feedback in order to provide Zopa with a consistent insight into to what lenders and savers would like from Zopa and what they like or dislike about our product offerings.

This role is a 6 - month Fixed Term Contract and we would like all training to be done in the office - we are opening to flexible working once training is complete.

A day in the life:

        Consistently build relationships and trust with new and existing lenders
        You will be in it together and assist with answering calls on our borrower line should this be needed
        Whether you are helping new lenders with the account opening process or educating on product offerings and services, you will be passionate about improving the overall lending experience
        A quick-thinking problem solver, you will identify issues encountered by our lenders and offer simple explanations and solutions
        You will manage your diary effectively, promptly following up with calls and emails
        You will remain flexible to perform ad-hoc tasks as and when required by the business
        You will attend frequent meetings with Management in order to provide consistent insight into what's working and what lenders would like

About you:

        You will be a Customer Champion and understand the importance of treating customers fairly. You will hold a track record for going the extra mile in order to ensure that the customer feels valued
        You have the confidence, patience and flexibility necessary to connect with a wide range of people and adapt effectively in a fast-paced environment
        You are capable of thinking on your feet and communicating effectively, asking clarifying questions and offering simple explanations to complex issues
        Alongside your natural rapport-building talents, you are a fast learner with an exceptionally high attention to detail, able to adapt efficiently to new concepts and systems
        You are energetic and driven, able to work with minimum supervision
        You are always striving to better yourself, focused on growing a rewarding career within client services
        You look forward to contributing positively to the team dynamic and hitting the ground running, true Zopian style
        Previous experience working in a similar role would be ideal
        You will be confident in Excel, educated to at least A-Level standard & hold a grade C or above in Maths and English GCSE
