Our bright and spacious office is located bang in the centre of Clerkenwell, the most interesting creative hotspot in London. We enjoy shiny Apple products, excellent coffee, free lunches, lively banter and the most competitive office table tennis league in town (probably). Come and join our team!
Our customer service team are on the front line at MyBuilder. We are the eyes and ears of the company and the voice of our customers.

What the role involves
In this varied role, your job will be to support and delight customers on both sides of our marketplace. If a homeowner is struggling to log in or find a tradesperson through our platform, you’ll provide helpful and friendly advice by email or over the phone. Our trade customers rely on us to get them going on MyBuilder and keep their accounts running smoothly. During a typical day, you might be called on to offer tailored on-boarding advice, resolve billing queries or help someone manage their online reputation.
Playing referee in the marketplace isn’t always easy and sometimes our customers can be frustrated or upset when they contact us. While it can be a challenging role at times, our advisors love the satisfaction of solving problems, overcoming objections and making our customers happy.
Who we're looking for
We’re keen to meet people from all backgrounds, although we do look for some experience of working in a customer service environment.
You are a people person and making others happy comes naturally to you. You know when someone is struggling and instinctively want to help them out. A natural communicator who understands the importance of language and tone, you love to chat and take pride in writing a great email. You are passionate about technology and excited about what we are trying to achieve. Most importantly, you have a genuine desire to provide fantastic customer service.
Individuality, enthusiasm and dedication are some of the qualities we value in our employees. We like people who volunteer before they’re asked, have a go at something they’ve never done before and who smile at the end of a tough day. Here are some of the other qualities we look for:
- Exceptional verbal and written communication skills.
