City: OXFORD, Oxfordshire

First 3-4 months will be 100% office based - once fully trained will be a hybrid role

The work involved in this role is very diverse: from taking customer calls, to using detailed procedure notes and complex information systems to process applications, and responding to a high volume of emails. It’s fast-paced, where changes to the way you work need to be swiftly implemented to reflect ever-changing legislation, and where an ability to learn quickly and retain information is a definite advantage. Your experience of providing excellent customer service will also be used every day, as you make contact with customers via phone and email.

Key responsibilities:

  • Input data to register applications for Selective Licensing.
  • Process applications using agreed procedures and guidance to meet performance and quality targets.
  • Undertake regular training as required.
  • Work with the team to provide excellent customer service by ensuring phone and email cover during the team’s core hours (08:30-17:00 Monday-Thursday, 08:30-16:30 Fridays), and by meeting agreed targets in relation to call-answering.
  • Pro-actively seek to improve quality in processing, both as an individual and supporting others in the team to do so and engaging positively with feedback when provided.
  • Liaise with colleagues and external customers to resolve queries.
  • Complete work as allocated by senior staff, prioritising where needed to ensure that agreed targets are continuously met, escalating when appropriate.
  • Follow all Council procedures in respect of customer feedback, including complaints.
  • Carry out any other duty compatible with the overall objectives of the Selective Licensing Team.
  • Work collaboratively and in an integrated way with colleagues, other teams and across services, providing support and input where necessary.

CV Tips

Your CV needs to be current with your most recent role. We won’t be able to submit it with any unexplained gaps in employment. It will save time and improve your chances of success if we can put your CV forward immediately without having to ask for revisions.

Your CV must cover the “Essential Requirements” of the role. Ideally you will address the “Essential Requirements” on each job description page directly, in a bullet point list. Please include any DBS details and other qualifications called for.

Your CV should clearly state that you are available to start work either immediately, or at short notice. In general, our clients are unable to work with notice periods of more than 1 week from the point at which a role is offered, 2 weeks at the very most.

We do not put forward covering letters, so please ensure that your CV in contains all relevant information being called for.

We recommend that you consider sending us a CV suitably tailored CV for each role that you apply for. Job board aggregator sites will generally store only one version of your CV, which can be a bit limiting, so this is to your advantage.
