Customer Loyalty is a diverse and rewarding department in which you’ll have a vital role to play. You’ll talk to existing policyholders towards the end of their policy and use your superb sales skills and customer service talents to win their business again. This is an exciting area of the business to work in, especially if you thrive on being challenged.
You’ll need to be an all-round excellent communicator and a great negotiator. Your friendly, helpful, understanding approach combined with strong product knowledge is what will make all the difference to customers. You won’t be able to please everybody every time, but when you do come up against difficult circumstances, you’ll deal with them positively and proactively, handling objections with confidence.
You'll stay up-to-date with a set of standards and procedures designed to help you understand the policy holder's circumstances, ensuring they get the best possible service and value for money.
