Solution bringers. Day makers. Extra milers. We are the AA. And we keep everyone’s show on the road. There for our members wherever and whenever they need us, we’re always ready for anything. That’s why, for over 100 years, we’ve continued to evolve and adapt. Today, as the nation’s number one motoring organisation, we offer a range of excellent products and services to millions of customers. As an Emergency Breakdown Customer Service Advisor, you’ll always go the extra mile for our members. In return, we’ll go the extra mile for you, with excellent training, support and development opportunities.

This is the job

You could help up to 100 new and existing members a day by taking calls when their vehicle has broken down. You’ll be the first point of contact to support our customers through their breakdown and help them to continue their journey. You’ll ask the right questions and get the information we need to identify their location and log their breakdown on our system, so we can enable the right service to help them. This is a rewarding, but challenging role where you will be supporting our customers in difficult situations, therefore sensitivity and empathy combined with excellent communication and listening skills are crucial to put our customers at ease.
