Job Description

Are you keen to work somewhere that’s stimulating and friendly with countless opportunities for growth and plenty of freedom to make a real impact? This could be the place for you!

We are looking for a Dutch speaking Customer Support Associate at INSHUR. Based in or around Amsterdam, you’ll be working on re-inventing insurance in exciting markets across multiple territories, including the UK, New York and Netherlands, and new European countries and US states as we expand.

Reporting to the Customer Operations Manager, you'll be joining a friendly team of 14 who believe in delivering a world-class service experience to differentiate INSHUR from your average Insurance company and making a real difference to our customer's lives. Most of our team is based in the UK and in NY - you'll be the first Customer Support Associate in the Netherlands. We'd like to hear from you if you're able to commute to Amsterdam when there's a need to meet with our Head of Insurance Operations and also to travel to our beautiful Brighton office in the UK to meet with the rest of the team for your onboarding. This is a very exciting time to join us!

What you'll do

As our Customer Support Associate, you will provide our customers with insurance and technical support directly via phone, email and chat. This role is key to INSHUR’s growth and ensures the best possible experience for our customers.

We don’t have a checklist of skills - our hiring process is much more around aptitude and passion so don’t worry if you’ve not used a particular tool or checked off all the skills and experience listed below.

That said, below is a guideline of skills for you to take a look at that we think would make you successful in this role:

  • Handle inbound calls, chat and email from our existing customers on a range of insurance-related queries
  • Respond to all customers in a timely, efficient, polite and professional manner
  • Adhere to the Customer Support Team's SLAs and KPI's
  • You will ensure customer satisfaction by making our customers feel like they’re dealing with a person – not an insurer
  • Have a thorough understanding of our products and use this to help answer our customer's queries
  • Accurately log all information on customer policies and our in-house systems
  • Assist in processing renewals, mid-term adjustments and cancellations on existing insurance policies
  • Identify ways to improve our customer journey, using your initiative to suggest effective solutions
  • Undertake other administrative tasks as may be deemed necessary from time to time and provide cover for other members of staff
  • Play an integral part of a growing team with the aim of continuing our international success

Requirements

We'd love to hear from you if you:

  • Have a minimum of three years of experience working within a high-performing customer support environment
  • Fluent in English and Dutch
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Experience with Zendesk

  • The ability to adapt to a given situation without compromising standards
  • You are able to work a 40-hour shift pattern between the hours of 8 am - 6 pm Monday - Friday

The FlexScore® is the result of a rigorous 2-step verification of a company’s flexibility

First we assess the flexibility options INSHUR provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure INSHUR is as flexible as they say they are.
