*DESCRIPTION*

iwoca is breaking down the barriers that stop Europe’s 20 million small businesses from accessing finance. Traditional bank loans have slow application processes, inflexible terms and burdensome criteria. In contrast, we use cutting-edge technology to offer flexible access to credit with a five minute application process and a decision in hours.

Since 2012, we've lent over £400 million to over 20,000 businesses across Europe. Our customers include everything from cafés to car dealers, salons to solicitors. Along the way we have built a sophisticated technology platform, won numerous awards and grown a fun, and vibrant team.

However, we’re still near the start of our journey – our aim is to finance a million small businesses within a decade and so we need more smart, hands-on people to help us reach this goal.


*The role*

At iwoca, we really love our customers, we want them to have the best possible experience. Our Customer Support Agent will be responsible for ensuring that no customer is left unattended and that every call is diverted to the appropriate team. You'll also be tasked with engaging with our customers and using your sales ability to ensure all customers are knowledgeable about our product.

* Previous experience in a call centre is desirable
* Strong communication & listening skills with an excellent telephone manner and a passion for delighting customers
