Customer Care Advisor
MyBuilder.com helps homeowners find reliable tradespeople through the power of online reviews. We’re a market leader in the UK and part of IAC, a well known New York based internet group (Tripadvisor, Vimeo, Match.com, Tinder, HomeAdvisor, etc.). This role is based at our Washington office in Tyne and Wear.
The Jobs Team is crucial to the ongoing success of MyBuilder. In order to find a tradesman, a homeowner must first post a job on the site. As the guardians of this process, the role of the Jobs Team is to review these jobs, ensuring they are properly categorised so customers can find the right tradesperson. It’s a challenging role that requires excellent attention to detail and the ability to work well under pressure. You will regularly reach out to homeowners, gathering more information about their job and answering their queries, so a great telephone manner and excellent customer care skills are essential.
Homeowners post jobs on MyBuilder around the clock and the team must be on hand from early until late to make sure there are no delays. Our extended working pattern means we’re also uniquely positioned to support other functions across the business such as customer service, giving you a varied and interesting role.
