Our customer service team are on the front line at MyBuilder. We are the eyes and ears of the company and the voice of our customers. We help people resolve their issues and turn unhappy users into evangelists. We proudly believe in the service we provide, promoting long-term usage with a keen focus on customer retention.

Your role

As a customer dispute advisor, you are responsible for helping our customers resolve their differences. Home improvement projects are complicated and things don’t always go according to plan. If a relationship turns sour, our customers come to us for support. There are often two sides to a story so, as marketplace referees, we have to remain impartial and fair. Where possible, we try to patch things up by listening to both parties, asking questions and encouraging dialogue. Otherwise, we provide high-quality advice so that both sides can act for themselves. To achieve all this, you’ll need to build rapport, manage expectations and deliver clear, effective recommendations.

Responsibilities include:

  • Owning escalated cases and managing the customer dispute process
  • Speaking with all parties involved in a dispute and attempting conciliation
  • Providing clear and straightforward advice that guides all parties to a timely resolution
  • Educating our customers to promote a positive experience of using MyBuilder
  • Identifying and escalating high-risk accounts for further investigation by our Trade Quality team
  • Comprehensively documenting all case information
  • Helping Government organisations with their investigations
  • Managing your own varied and complex caseload alongside other activities
  • Developing and improving internal policies, procedures and tools

Who we’re looking for

This is a senior customer service position. While you don’t need specific qualifications for this role, you should have a track record of handling complex customer complaints or disputes. We’re especially interested in meeting people who can demonstrate the following qualities and skills:

  • Balanced and easy going - navigating emotionally charged disputes between tradesmen and job posters can be challenging at times.
  • Strong interpersonal skills. An effective listener who can negotiate and give clear advice to people in difficult situations.
  • Fair, yet able to make tough decisions.

  • Organised and comfortable managing a high volume of cases at any one time.
  • Previous alternative dispute resolution experience would be beneficial.
  • Comfortable with technology. Able to quickly learn new applications and processes.
