Job Description

Customer Care Advisor/Retention Team - German Speaking
18,500-19,000 Monday to Friday

Our client is the leading online pet healthcare retailer in the UK, offering a comprehensive catalogue of pet products that range from prescription medicines, to premium quality pet diets and accessories. They have grown rapidly in the UK, France and Germany these last years and have made several acquisitions of competitors to solidify its position in the market. The office environment is fast-paced but very supportive, and there is vast scope for individuals to learn and grow their own skill set. We encourage our staff to use their initiative fully, and are very receptive to new ideas.

We're looking for a Customer Care Advisor to join our Retention Team. Customer Care is where we aim to stand out and differentiate ourselves from other companies in our space. We intentionally use the term "Care" not "Service" as we believe there is a difference. Our aim as a Retention Team is not to push sales onto our customers, but rather to provide an aftercare service and make ourselves available. We offer a genuine convenience to our customers and we want to keep it that way to enable their pets to live long and healthy lives!

We're a talented, dynamic team who do a lot to forge a sense of togetherness with regular social events that have ranged from paintball to karaoke! There's a friendship that runs through our group that makes working together pleasurable and our office a fun place to be.
