We have a requirement to appoint several Operational Support Advisors.

Working across Castle Water’s operations, you could be working within one of our Metering, Billing, Payments or Support teams where a high level of numeracy, as well as excellent written and spoken communication are required. Experience of working in a similar working environment would be desirable.

Castle Water is the leading independent water retailer in the UK, the leading supplier in London and the Thames Valley, South East England and Portsmouth, and one of the 5 largest suppliers in Scotland.

Castle Water has a track record of providing excellent customer service, and of developing innovative approaches to utility supply. We developed the first affinity partnership in the water sector, pioneered online switching by customers, and were the first company to transfer customers in England. We have more 5* reviews on Trust Pilot than all other water retailers combined. Our values include treating customers fairly and maintaining an open-door approach with our regulators.

Our philosophy as a company is to provide all staff, at every level, with ongoing training and development.  This can range from Call-Handling and Microsoft Excel, to Business Writing and professional qualifications.

These roles are central to our activities and provide an opportunity to use a range of relevant skills. As our market is relatively newly deregulated, we are looking for candidates who enjoy problem solving and who can work on their own initiative.

This is a permanent opportunity with an immediate start date.
