About us

Camden is building somewhere everyone can thrive, by making our borough the best place to live, work, study and visit. Because, we’re not just home to the UK’s fast-growing economy. We’re home to the most important conversations happening today. And we’re making radical social change a reality, so that nobody gets left behind. This is an exciting time to join our team at Contact Camden in their offices at the Crowndale Centre, two minutes from Mornington Crescent Station, providing a variety of key front line services as a Customer Service Officer.

The role

You will be expected to work as part of a team to provide high quality customer care within a multi channelled Contact Centre, taking ownership and accountability for resolving calls, emails and face to face interactions from our citizens.   

You’ll be joining 80 other Customer Service Officers – who provide customer service support across a range of different services from Council Tax, Parking, Housing and Supporting Communities.

We have a big focus on development – this means getting you involved in projects/improvements, having career conversations and getting you ready for your next step and your Team Manager/Performance Coaches will hold regular coaching conversations with you to support you in improving the quality of your customer conversations.

This role also requires a DBS Check.

Ideally, we’re looking for someone who has excellent customer service skills and previous experience of working in a customer service environment.

Most importantly, the right candidate must show positivity, take ownership of customer contact in order to ensure a resolution for the citizen, be self-motivated, enjoys working with people and take pride in delivering a high-quality customer service for the people of Camden.

You will demonstrate the ability to resolve front line customer service enquiries and take decisions to a high standard across multi channels. You will work flexibly with the ability to move across services and channels to respond proactively to changes in customer demand.

You will also take personal responsibility for making appropriate decisions for our customers with minimal supervision.

Previous knowledge and experience of working within a Contact Centre environment would be desirable.

If you feel you can demonstrate the skills, knowledge and behaviours outlined above then we would love to hear from you.
