Some of the key responsibilities for our advisors are: Handling inbound messages from new and existing customers on our digital channels (Web Messaging, SMS, email, and Social Media), booking flights, assisting in any queries, and engaging with our frequent flying members. Offering our customers irresistible, effortless, and memorable experiences, providing advice and guidance to help them find the right product that suits their needs. Ensuring high levels of attention to detail and providing accurate information, to minimise the need for the customer to contact us again. Maximising revenue at every opportunity, by listening to customers and their needs. Working towards monthly sales, productivity, and customer satisfaction targets. Attending and contributing in team meetings and briefings. Sharing and receiving best practice with colleagues. Proactively ensuring that your individual coaching objectives are met and that your skill levels are constantly developed.


About you

Would you love to be on the journey with us, welcoming our customer's back to the skies, booking their trips of a lifetime, and delivering the amazing experiences that we are known for? To be successful in this role you will need to have Excellent written and verbal communication skills The ability to multitask and work efficiently Significant experience in Customer Service A sufficient and safe environment to work from home for 60% of your working hours Self-motivation, with the ability to confidently work independently Confidence with technology - we will train you in the systems we use, but sound experience in navigating a laptop and the internet is essential. Covid-19 has presented us with a unique opportunity for our teams to work more dynamically than ever before. Our people work 60% of their time at home, and 40% in the office at Pobl house in Llansamlet, Swansea. As an example, on a 5-day working week, this equates to 3 days at home and 2 days in the office. However, once you are fully developed in role, we are prepared to increase the amount of homeworking if this is your preference.Please note that in the for the first four weeks after training has ended, you will be required to work in the office for a minimum of two days per week to ensure you are supported whilst new to role. We know sometimes technology can be temperamental, so one stipulation we do have is that you reside close enough to Pobl House to be able to get to the office and continue your shift if you experience any technical difficulties at home. You will be employed on a full-time basis on an annualised hours contract, which means that there are no set shifts each week. You will be contracted to work 1,950 hours across 12 months, and the number of hours that you work each week could be flexed up or down to meet the demands of the business (however your basic salary will remain the same each month). You will be able to view your shift pattern for the whole year and, if we need to shorten or lengthen your shift, we will give you 28 days' notice to do this*. The shortest shift you could be scheduled to work is 4 hours, and the longest is 10.5 hours. Our people enjoy the flexibility of knowing that when work is quiet, they are scheduled additional time off without using any annual leave. We are happy to answer any questions you have about annualised hours contracts during the application process. Our training now has a blended approach, some of which will be digitalised and completed at home, combined with classroom-based learning. But don't worry, you will be supported throughout the training course by one of our amazing Customer Centre trainers. If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you!
