That’s why, for over 100 years, we’ve continued to evolve and adapt.

This is the job
Here at the AA, our Service Delivery Customer Service Advisors are the engine that keeps our motors running. Working in partnership with our Emergency Breakdown department, our Customer Service Advisors guarantee we get help to our members as quickly and efficiently as possible, wherever or whenever they’ve broken down. This critical role works behind the scenes to coordinate the appropriate support, whether that’s liaising with local garages or getting our AA patrols on route, so our members can get back on their journey safely.
What will I be doing?
You’ll be working in a fast-paced environment taking a variety of inbound and outbound calls. This can range from speaking to our outdoor patrols and local garages so they can support our customers in breakdown situations, to customers using their membership entitlements. Acting as a problem solver, you will be proactive and ensure the correct support is provided to our members quickly and efficiently, which also involves providing updates to our members, whilst reassuring them that help is on the way. No matter what the call, you’ll play a key part in delivering a first-class customer service experience for all our customers. This is a rewarding 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.
What do I need?
You don’t need any existing experience of our products as you’ll be given excellent training and the support you need to succeed.
You’ll need to be enthusiastic, self-motivated and happy to pitch in and help others.
As a minimum requirement you’ll need:
- Excellent communication skills
- The ability to work as part of a team
- Willing to work on a 24/7 365 shift roster
- Available for training starting on the 11th July
We’re always looking to recognise and reward our employees for the work they do. As a valued member of The AA team, you’ll have access to a range of benefits including:
- Diverse learning and development opportunities to support you to progress in your career
- 23 days annual leave, increasing to 25 days after 5 years’ service, plus 8 bank holidays
