GoCardless is used for domestic and international payments by 75,000+ organisations and counting, processing more than $30 billion across 30 countries. We’re an award-winning London based fintech, with additional offices in Riga, Paris and Melbourne.
GoCardless is on a mission to become the world’s bank payment network. Customer Operations is set to play a vital role in the business’s ambition to reach this goal. This team is responsible for scaling, optimising, and at times creating sustainable operational processes that will help the business evolve and thrive in the Open Banking industry. This role is vital to the successful delivery of the company's objectives and ensuring we’re supporting our Customers’ journey from day one.
If you’re eager to make your mark and are looking for an exciting challenge, this may be your role. You’ll be working closely with our customers and touching base with a variety of teams and stakeholders within GoCardless. You’ll also have the opportunity to develop your communication, operational, and prioritisation skills. Though you will be expected to hit the ground running, you’ll be part of a dedicated team that’s well-established and has a focus on developing careers. To that end, before you start, there's paid training, an induction, and a thorough onboarding process, so you get comfortable with the GoCardless product. If you’re happy working in a fast-paced environment where the work is varied and challenging, then this is the role for you.
This role is part of the Customer Operations group and is responsible for supporting customers and carrying out Customer & KYC responsibilities such as carrying out KYC checks, providing an excellent level of service by owning customer queries relating to product usage, general enquiries and troubleshooting.
While setting up this team, we will begin by dedicating the team to tasks related to customers or KYC. The role is expected to eventually blend KYC and customer skills, making it an excellent career path in Customer Operations as both are very essential skills in fast-paced fintech. Not only will it allow for two essential skill sets to be developed and mastered that are key for the fintech industry but it will allow for development and growth into a multitude of pathways such as AML Analysis, senior customer support and potential management opportunities.
