For too long car buyers have had to negotiate a confusing, tired and fragmented marketplace that is light years behind other retail sectors. Until now. We are ripping up the rule book and breaking the mould of a lender in the used-car market.

Oodle Car Finance is changing the way people buy cars, by putting our customers’ needs front and centre of the second biggest retail market in the UK. We are bringing the used-car market bang up to date by building modern, digital, retail processes around what the customer actually needs. We primarily provide loans for our customers and link them up with some of the UK’s best car dealers .

To help us achieve our ultimate mission to create a best-in-class consumer experience – where our customers reap the benefits – we are looking for exceptional individuals to join our team. And revel in the ride. We need outstanding people with strong academic achievements, along with buckets full of energy, desire, curiosity and a can-do attitude to thrive in a fast-paced (and fun) entrepreneurial environment. Everyone at Oodle has an input on how we develop and how we change the game.

As part of our customer-facing teams, we are looking for key individuals to liaise with customers when they have missed a payment on their loan.  This involves extensive communication via email and phone, listening carefully, working closely with the customer and proposing solutions to ensure that payments are made. 

All interactions with Oodle customers are conducted with the highest standards and comply with regulatory requirements as well as working in an efficient, timely manner. Previous experience working in telephone-based customer services or a customer-facing role is desirable, but not essential – more important is your desire to work with people and solve problems. You should have a professional and approachable manner, be empathetic, proactive and hardworking with excellent organisational skills.

 

Benefits:

We are an extremely fun and outgoing team of just over 100 people, who all sit in one big open plan office, and we value candidates who have a desire to get their hands dirty and hit the ground running as we bid to change the used-car industry. Ideas are our fuel, so if Oodle sounds like a place where you can help us shape an industry, please send over your details.

Oh, and we also offer a competitive salary, benefits, a bonus scheme, share options and 25 days paid leave.  This position works shifts – there are three and you will rotate through them weekly: 9am to 5pm, 10.30am to 6.30pm and 12-8pm.  You will also need to work one Saturday in four, 10am to 6pm (and we give you a day off in the following week).
