Senior Customer Services Officer

Location:  Leicester             Salary:  £23,000 pa

At Cambridge & Counties Bank, we’re justifiably proud of our exceptional customer satisfaction rate of 98% and delighted that 99% of our customers would recommend our services to others.  We achieve these extraordinary standards by providing the very highest quality customer service through a wide range of customer support contacts and interactions.   

We are looking for people who have had experience working in a customer facing environment, and who have the ability to talk to customers in a way that creates a positive and memorable customer interaction every time.

You will deliver a consistently high quality of service to our deposit customers and partners, with specific responsibility for new account opening and the more complex customer interactions. You will assess individual risk profiles of each of those customers and ensure full compliance with the relevant regulations and our Bank’s policies.

Experience and an understanding of Anti Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations is vital, as when necessary, you will be assessing the risk associated with our customers, identifying any gaps in our knowledge about them and then rectifying the situation in a straightforward, customer centric approach.

You will also meet the day to day needs and enquiries of our customers, for example savings account withdrawals and closure and fixed rate bond maturities and reinvestments, always ensuring compliance with product terms and conditions.  You will engage with customers withdrawing significant funds, or closing accounts, in order to enhance our level of customer insight, and to support h2er customer retention.
