Job Summary

The Role 

Smart Metering Appointments Advisors are responsible for delivering a high quality Customer Experience, through a combination of inbound and outbound dialling to SSE customers in order to arrange an appointment to have their Smart meter installed.  Customer service is at the heart of our values and is essential to building a long lasting relationship with customers.  You will be required to deliver a high standard of service based on a detailed knowledge and understanding of Smart Installation procedures and processes and also through the managing of customers’ expectations, and with a high level of professionalism. When escalating calls and queries, the situation will need to be clearly and quickly relayed.  You will support the business through ensuring all processes are adhered to and fully compliant.

The customer journey is broken in to three parts:


  • Welcoming and educating
  • Installing and delighting
  • Reassuring and reinforcing relationships


It will be the interaction customers have with our staff that will differentiate our client from its competitors and as a result a level of autonomy will be given to staff to enable them to listen and act on information captured from our customers during conversations rather than working from a script.
