Barclays is one of the world’s largest and most respected financial institutions, with 329 years of success, quality and innovation behind us. We offer careers that provide endless opportunity – helping millions of individuals and businesses thrive, and creating financial and digital solutions that the world now takes for granted.

We are currently operating in a hybrid working environment, meaning that many colleagues spend part of their working hours at home and part in the office, depending on the nature of the role they are in. Please discuss the detail of the working pattern options for the role with the hiring manager.

  • Reviewing relevant information and making decisions and actions autonomously in a fast-paced environment
  • Applying your knowledge of social media to support customers proactively through this unique channel, whilst conveying the right message in a public forum
  • Alongside customers, collaborating with Team Leaders, Operations Managers and colleagues across relevant areas find solutions and maintain positive relationships
  • Pro-actively identifying fraudulent accounts – understanding the complexities of bankruptcy IVA and Trust deed regulations and laws

What We’re Looking For

  • Experience within customer service with the confidence to communicate with a range of customers across different channels (chat bots, email, telephony, social media)
  • Good knowledge of Barclays products and services
  • Skilled in mentoring, educating and coaching of customers
  • Ability to self-manage workload and pro-actively support less experienced colleagues

Skills That Will Help You In The Role
