Field Debt Agent - Watford and Chesham
We are currently recruiting for a Field Debt Agent to join our client on an ongoing temporary basis with the prospect of becoming a permanent employee in the future.
As a Field Debt Agent you'll visit customers at their homes or businesses to talk about unpaid bills and offer a range of solutions. You'll have great conversations with customers to understand their financial situation and ability to pay, with the aim to recover outstanding debt, discuss future payments and ways of reducing energy usage. You'll also be dealing with potential new occupiers and account disputes, reading meters, and if the role becomes permanent you'll be trained to fit either gas or electricity meters and you'll move up the pay scale.
You will also be required to visit customer's properties as part of a warrant team to review the best outcome for our customers.
The ideal candidate will have experience of working with customers as you'll be an ambassador for our client in the local community, and the great service you provide will be a lasting impression on the customer. You'll be confident in communicating with people and you'll be able to keep cool under pressure.
We'll train you in the classroom for 2 weeks, with further training out in the field to ensure that you're up to speed with our processes and policies.
