Hello. We’re Severn Trent and we think water is wonderful. And we’re pretty keen on people too.
24 hours a day, 365 days a year we serve 4.8 million households and business across the heart of the UK. Each cuppa drank, each toilet flushed is only possible because of the 7,000 brilliant team members working across our patch.
We welcome people from all walks of life and celebrate individuality. We know diverse minds, experiences and backgrounds help us to learn and better serve our customers and the communities where they live.
If you want to do more because you care, we’d love to talk to you. There really is something for everyone here.
Here at Severn Trent we take pride in knowing we come to work each day and help make a difference to our customers, working together with our colleagues to solve problems as soon as we can.
Our Customer Advisor role sits at the heart of this value with the opportunity to really make a difference to our customers.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
We’re looking for people to join us in our Customer Service department in Shelton, Shropshire (SY3 8BJ) to support our customers – and with no scripts or sales targets you can be your best self.
At Severn Trent, we want people, not robots.
Haven’t got customer service or water industry experience? Don’t worry, we can help you with that – we’ll give you all the training you need to succeed.
You’ll be the voice of Severn Trent. But just as important, you’ll be listening to what customers tell you and helping them with the right information. Every call is different; one minute you’ll be helping someone with their bill, the next you might be dealing with a leak. So, if you’re a good listener with attention to detail this is the role for you.
You’ll work in our busy customer hub full of like minded people. It’s a great open plan office environment with canteen that serves fantastic food. There’s fun incentives, free parking, regular competitions and prizes up for grabs too (Plus, you’ll get free tea and coffee, all made with our marvellous water of course).
Don’t worry if this is something that you’ve not done before. We’re interested in what you can bring to the role. In return we’ll give you six weeks of training, so you’re well prepared and confident to take calls from our customers. So that we can make sure that you have all the training you will need to really excel, if you have any annual leave booked during the training period, we may need to ask you to join us at a later date after your holiday.
And it doesn’t end there. Our continued training helped one in three of our advisors progress their careers within two years. Wonderful!
Our water is vital to our customers, so we need to be around when they need us. you’ll be working shifts totalling 37 hours per week between the hours of 7:45am and 9:00pm, Monday to Friday and Saturday’s 8:45am to 5:30pm (but of course, that means you’ll get time off in the week).
Don’t worry – you’ll always have plenty of notice of your shifts, plus lots of annual leave. We know you have a life outside work, too!
WHAT YOU’LL BRING TO THE ROLE
Limited or no experience? Don’t worry, we’ve got you.
We want someone who’s keen to make a positive difference to our customers. Your character, positivity and a caring attitude are the things we’re looking for. It’s great if you have some kind of customer focused experience such as retail, hospitality, sales or similar. But even if you haven’t, we can help you with this.
It’s a fast-paced environment so you’ll need to be comfortable in resolving one query and then moving quickly onto the next.
The right skills and experience are important. But if you have the right character, positivity and a caring attitude we want to talk to you, too.
We welcome people from all walks of life and celebrate individuality as we know diverse minds, experiences and backgrounds help us to learn and better serve our communities.
We want people who show up and get involve. Those who are ready to be part of something bigger and who want to make a difference because they care.
