Job Description

About Motorway
Motorway is the UK’s fastest-growing used car marketplace – our award-winning, online-only platform connects private car sellers with thousands of verified dealers nationwide, ensuring everyone gets the best deal. Founded in 2017, our technology-led approach has redefined the experience of selling a car, generating thousands of monthly car sales and helping us to grow to a team of more than 400 people across our London and Brighton offices.

About the Role

We are looking for a skilled Customer Escalations Specialist to join a team dedicated to resolving our most sensitive customer journeys, retaining customer confidence in the Motorway brand. As well as supporting our customers, this person will be recording critical feedback to support root cause analysis, and inform continuous improvements to our business model.
This is an exciting role where you will liaise with a wide range of teams and senior stakeholders across the business to solve complex customer issues. This gives you a wider business exposure than you would normally obtain in a customer-facing role, providing the opportunity to work with teams such as Dealer Governance, Legal, PR, Fraud, Quality Assurance, and CX management.

The position involves handling escalated cases and issues, customer feedback, and public engagement on our social media and review platforms, as well as processing customer GDPR requests. This is an outbound role based on internal escalation which allows you to organise and prioritise your own workload, and you will have the unique opportunity to make real positive change in the business moving forward.
There is a wide scope to learn and grow within the role, and a high degree of support and training on offer. We encourage applications from anyone with strong customer service skills looking to take the next steps in their career, or those who wish to continue their development from a previous Escalations role.


  • Managing and prioritising escalations and cooperating with teams across the business to provide customer-focused resolutions.
  • Responding to reviews across Trustpilot, Google Reviews, App Store and other platforms.
  • Social media comment management
  • Managing GDPR requests.
  • Collating data on poor customer experiences and use of the platform to share with relevant teams in support of operational development.

Available shift: Monday - Friday 8.45am-5.30pm


  • Previous experience in a customer-facing role, with experience of taking the wheel and having challenging or sensitive conversations with customers.
  • Investigative, detail-oriented and analytical mindset. Exceptional attention to detail with the ability to arrive at fair, objective, and even conclusions and resolutions which balance empathy and objectivity.
  • Exceptional customer care sensibilities. You're passionate about turning a poor experience into a positive one and are fantastic at adapting, diffusing and learning from customer feedback.
  • Strong risk assessment, prioritisation, and autonomous workload management skills.
  • Ability to work in and contribute to the development of a highly adaptive team with processes in continual development.
  • Exceptional verbal and written communication skills.


  • A competitive salary
  • BUPA health insurance
  • Discounted dental through BUPA
  • Discounted gym membership through BUPA
  • On-Hand volunteering membership + volunteering day
  • Hybrid working - opportunity to work from home one day a week (subject to approval)
  • Pension scheme
  • Motorway car leasing scheme - lease a zero-emissions electric vehicle at a significant discount
  • Enhanced maternity/paternity leave
  • Regular social events
  • Cycle to work scheme
