Our client, a long established Financial Services Firm, are looking to recruit a number of skilled Telephone Negotiators to join their Debt Recovery and Collections team in their vibrant, Sheffield City Centre based offices.

For over 40 years, this Firm have been helping people manage their credit payments, working closely with customers to find affordable and sustainable solutions that are right for their individual circumstances.

* Dealing with customer complaints, queries, concerns and disputes in a manner in line with company brand and proposition.

* Displaying the highest level of verbal and written communication to customers, responding to customers via telephone, email, letter and fax.
* Arranging Payment Plans with customers, discussing sensitive information and different solutions to get them where they need to be.
* Liaising with all departments across the business to ensure the timely and professional delivery of services.
* Reporting back issues to your Team Leader.

The Candidate

You must be able to effectively demonstrate previous experience in a similar, customer focussed role. Minimum 1 years' experience in a similar, telephone based customer service role is necessary - due to the nature of the role and the business, candidates must also be able to demonstrate previous experience in adhering to FCA/FSA guidelines (coming from a Banking, Financial Services or Insurance background).
