Communication skills are at the forefront of this role. Candidates must have the confidence to ask more questions, and gather as much information as possible, sometimes under pressure from the customer.

Candidates are to have a really good communication style, as they will be dealing with and at times investigating people who have missed repayments on their car loans. They need to be calm, reassuring, and measured, and need to have the intelligence to ask the right questions, and record and report on this information when they have gathered it.

You will need at least Grade 'C' in both English and Maths and experience in a customer focused role with excellent telephone skills.
