What is the role?

We’re not your typical debt recovery company – we truly want to understand our customers’ circumstances then work with them to set affordable and sustainable repayment plans.

You are our top priority from day one and we’re passionate about working with you to fulfil your potential. We are really proud of our onboarding journey and the level of support you’ll be given to help you succeed. Initially you’ll join our office-based induction that is all set up for effective social distancing, and you may move out to work remotely further down the line once you feel competent and confident in your role.

What are we looking for?

People who:

· are great listeners

· can have a great conversation

· enjoy working in an outcomes-focused environment

· can work to targets to achieve bonuses

· can adapt well to change in a fast-paced environment

· enjoy taking ownership and strive to get the best solution in place for the customer and for PRA Group
