Customer Care Advisor

MyBuilder.com helps homeowners find reliable tradespeople through the power of online reviews. We’re a market leader in the UK and part of IAC, a well known New York based internet group (Tripadvisor, Vimeo, Match.com, Tinder, HomeAdvisor, etc.). This role is based at our Washington office in Tyne and Wear.

The Role

The Jobs Team is crucial to the ongoing success of MyBuilder. In order to find a tradesperson, a homeowner must first post a job on the site. As the guardians of this process, the role of the Jobs Team is to review these jobs, ensuring they are properly categorised so customers can find the right tradesperson. It’s a challenging role that requires excellent attention to detail and the ability to work well under pressure. You will regularly reach out to homeowners, gathering more information about their job and answering their queries, so a great telephone manner and excellent customer care skills are essential.

Homeowners post jobs on MyBuilder around the clock and the team must be on hand from early until late to make sure there are no delays. Our flexible working pattern means we’re also uniquely positioned to support other functions across the business such as customer service, giving you a varied and interesting role.

You will have a confident and engaging manner, love talking to customers and have the ability to relate to people from a variety of backgrounds. Great teamwork is essential in this role so you will need to be able to interact well with others.

A keen interest in home improvement is desirable but most important is your attitude, commitment to fantastic customer service and desire to learn more. We will then work with you to develop the knowledge you will need to succeed in this role.
