ABOUT THE ROLE
📍Based circa 3 days a week at our HQ in East London!
Goodlord’s mission is to provide the best renting experience in the world and we’re on the hunt for a Customer Support Hero to help us achieve this.
No two days are ever the same at Goodlord so what you’ll be up to will vary. The pace we move at also means priorities will change and you’ll need to be comfortable with this (we’ll support you!).
These are the things that will be core to your role and will keep you busy on a day to day basis:
- Working on live chat, inbound phone and email enquiries to proactively solve some challenging technical and navigational issues for our customers.
- Offering and delivering first class customer and user experience
- Identifying root causes for simple issues which cause customers to contact us repeatedly - and helping us solve them
- Implementing creative solutions to proactively resolve potential issues for customers at first point of contact.
- Managing/contributing to projects aimed at optimising resolution workflows and improving the Customer experience
- Being an advocate for our users and working directly with our Development team to help improve our products
- Help us become an industry-leading and award-winning customer service team, where the emphasis is on delighting the customer rather than merely satisfying them
You should apply if:
- you are able to switch between multiple platforms with speed and accuracy
- you get on with everyone and adapt your style to communicate most effectively with them
- your written and spoken English are envied by others
- you’re a quick-thinker and can diffuse difficult conversations with empathy and humour
- you’re super organised and have proven your ability to prioritise effectively and meet deadlines
- change doesn’t faze you; you take the rough with the smooth and take people with you on that journey
- you are energetic, creative, curious and confident
- you are full of ideas, are not shy about expressing them and get excited about executing them
- you have a positive attitude and work well under pressure and targets
And it would be super great if:
- You know what it’s like to work in a young company and love the vibe (and sometimes chaos!)
- You have previous experience of working within a customer/technical support team delivering first class customer experience.
We started Goodlord because we wanted to make renting simple and transparent for everyone involved: the agent, landlord and tenant. We knew generation rent would lead to more tenants, with higher digital expectations and we were confident we could provide a solution.
And we did. Like all high growth companies it’s been a bit of a roller coaster journey, but we’re now stronger than ever, with over 2500 happy customers and exciting new products. We have ambitious plans but with William Reeve at the helm alongside co-founder Tom Mundy and a brilliant team of over 250 talented Goodlordians we are confident we’ll achieve these.
Our values guide our decisions, the way we work, our culture and the people we ask to join the team. We work hard, have fun and support each other. We’re not afraid to make mistakes (we’d never learn if we didn’t) and we’re always looking to challenge ourselves. Our style is collaboration based on honesty, friendship and respect.
And in the past year we’re proud to have been recognised as a Great Place to work. No one likes a show off, but we can’t not shout about this. We’ve worked hard to make Goodlord great, and it’s important you know this isn’t just words on paper; Goodlordians have validated this which has led to us being accredited:
- 9th in Deloitte’s UK Technology Fast 50
- 10th Great Place to Work in the UK large-sized businesses 2022
- 23rd Wellbeing Great Place to Work in UK Large- sized businesses 2022
- 18th best workplace for Women in UK large-sized businesses 2022
- Excellence in wellbeing for our dedication to goodlordian’s wellbeing
- Verified by Flexa as a Flexified employer - Top 100 for 2022

The FlexScore® is the result of a rigorous 2-step verification of a company’s flexibility
First we assess the flexibility options Goodlord provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure Goodlord is as flexible as they say they are. Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.
We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.
