Customer Support Advocate (French Speaking) at GoCardless
London, GB

Go the extra mile to delight our customers.

GoCardless is growing fast. We’ve built a world-class product that opens up Direct Debit to small and medium-sized businesses across the UK, Europe and now Australia! We have recently extended our offering to multinational companies like the Guardian, TripAdvisor and Box. Thousands of businesses already rely on us to handle their payments, and hundreds more join us every week.

We're looking for bilingual candidates who are fluent in English and French to join our day team (Monday to Friday 9.00am to 6.00pm) and provide first-rate support and guidance to our UK, European, North American and Australian users. The expected start date is Tuesday 2nd April 2019.


The role

We pride ourselves on listening to our users and doing everything we can to solve their problems, from sending an email to getting a new feature added to our product roadmap.

As a member of our Support team, you'll represent the customer's voice across the company. As your knowledge and experience grows, you’ll have opportunities to help inform our product roadmap to ensure we are always building something people want.

You'll work as part of a wider team of around 15 who work with our UK, European, Australian and North American merchants to solve tough problems and provide world class service. You’ll be working remotely handling calls and emails from our merchants and from customers using GoCardless to pay, utilising our in-house systems to help ensure that you can deliver the best support experience possible.

We've built a friendly, collaborative culture, where we hire and develop driven people that share our desire to do work we can be proud of. We value learning and feedback, and are devoted to encouraging and supporting each other's continual professional growth. Once you’ve built the core foundations of knowledge required to succeed in your support role here at GoCardless, there will be scope for you to develop a specialism and take on more responsibility as our team continues to grow.
