At Standard Life, we know that your life is full of choices, not least about where to develop and build your career. With a passion for customer service, we know all about working for a better future – we do it every day. Now, as part of the Phoenix Group, we can offer you a career opportunity second to none with a successful and growing life savings business

Could you put yourself in our customer’s shoes?  If so we’d love to hear from you!

As part of our Process Hub in our Customer Operations department, you’ll be dealing with our customers every day, building customer relationships by understanding and meeting needs.

Strong numerical skills and excellent attention to detail are absolutely central to the role as you’ll be updating, calculating and processing important information for our customers. It’s also important that you’re a confident, clear communicator both in person and in writing.  But that doesn’t mean you need to be a seasoned financial services professional. It’s not even vital that you’ve worked in an office (though it might be useful). What’s important is that you have solid customer service experience, together with the pride and passion to make a difference to our customers’ lives on a daily basis. 

What we offer

Bring your skills and dedication to our industry leading pensions and savings business - now part of the Phoenix Group - and you can look forward to a great career with us: we’ll recognise your efforts, support your development and help to drive your ambitions.

Your starting salary will be from £17500 up to £19000 depending on your experience. Once you start with us this will be reviewed on an annual basis and as you achieve set milestones your basic salary will rise accordingly.   You’ll also have the opportunity to earn up to 8% - 16% annual bonus, alongside 12% non-contributory pension (worth £2100 to £2280pa), private healthcare, a generous holiday allowance of 31.5 days with the option to buy and sell additional holidays according to your needs.  This coupled with ongoing training and development and a wide range of exclusive lifestyle offers including discounted gym memberships, cinema tickets and retailers will allow you to grow your career whilst maintaining a positive work / life balance.
