It is our people that make the difference, and their innate ability to handle customers with honesty and integrity. It’s not something that can be taught, it’s something special that’s rooted in all of us.
Connecting with customers from all walks of life and from all corners of the earth, our Customer Contact Advisors, Customer Relations Advisors and Sales Agents make all the difference at the end of the phone.
Roles and Locations
Customer Contact Advisors, Manchester and Newcastle
Handling customer queries from across the globe, you will handle a wide range of queries and enquiries. You will instinctively know that a great customer experience ensures customer satisfaction, and potential for repeat custom. Our advisors know and understand that exceptional customer service is personalised, pro-active and reactive, as well as seamless.
Customer Relations Advisors, Newcastle
No two calls are the same. Dealing with people who are sometimes in a high state of emotion, takes a certain type of person, someone who thrives working at pace, who looks for opportunities, finds solutions and loves fixing issues. Someone who is always positive and professional, no matter what the problem is. Our Customer Relation Advisors are experts in finding pragmatic solutions to sometimes tricky problems, they understand one size doesn’t fit all, and always strive to be the best they can be, every day and on every call!
Sales Agents, Newcastle
To succeed in this exciting, diverse environment, you'll need a real passion for sales, travel and holidays. You'll thrive on the diversity of sales challenges - one minute you can be booking a one-way ticket from Newcastle to London, then on your next call a luxury holiday package to Barbados. Most of all you'll enjoy the thrill that comes with achieving high sales targets in a target-driven environment.
Whichever role most suits, you'll be making sure our customers are looked after. You'll be their first port of call, setting the tone with a warm welcome. You'll be reassuring, letting each caller know that you're there with them throughout their British Airways experience.
These are varied and challenging roles, but you enjoy solving complex problems so you'll be in your element here. With a proactive approach, you'll share what you know when it helps, listen to questions and do everything in your power to fix anything that is wrong, immediately.
We set high standards here, but we match them with world-class training, so you can take real time and ownership of the service you give our customers.
We are recruiting at both our Manchester and Newcastle centres.
