Job Purpose

You’re a fixer. You make things happen and put smiles on faces. You’ll be helping our students get the answers and information they need to learn, develop and progress. From exam times and course deadlines, to bookings and payments, you’re an oracle of epic proportions. If you went on Mastermind, your specialist subject would be BPP.

You’ll be providing friendly and professional support to BPP customers via telephone and email. Your days will be fast-paced and busy. But you’ll have a team around you, all working together on one common goal: delighting customers with the information they need.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Working cooperatively, flexibly and effectively on your own and as part of a team, delivering support that meets BPP customer service standards.
  • Consistently providing a high-quality service to all customers.
  • Acting as first point of contact for students and customers, taking calls and emails, and if needed making outbound calls. All with the goal of customer satisfaction and retention, while meeting BPP customer service call handling standards.
  • Processing customer transactions using BPP's internal booking systems, within agreed SLAs.
  • Being empathic to individual customer requirements and emotional states, while ensuring customer requests on process change, fulfilment and payment are handled firmly and sensitively.
  • Keeping up to date with any changes to BPP's products/services or processes/procedures which affect the customer service operation.
  • Being flexible and adaptable, in order to effectively support and contribute to developments and improvements within the customer service team and student management centre.
