Broadband Compare is seeking a Customer Support Representative

At Broadband Compare, our objective is to help Kiwis find the best broadband plan for their needs.  We are shaking things up in the NZ broadband market and with the rollout of ultra fast fibre broadband and the increased availability of broadband in rural areas from the rural broadband initiative, we want to help New Zealand unleash the full potential of the Internet into their homes and businesses.  

There are over 100 different New Zealand broadband providers in the country and at Broadband Compare, we list and compare them all.  We are passionate about helping people get a better broadband connection and save money through using the Broadband Compare website.

Broadband Compare is a rapidly growing division of SLICE Digital and an excellent place to work for people who believe in keeping things simple and having fun.  We are a small team so we want to recruit people who want to challenge the status quo, and make a difference.


About the Role:

In this role, you will be responsible for delivering exceptional support and customer service to any enquiries that come through to the 0508 2COMPARE customer contact centre.

You will be responsible for helping customers to find the best broadband plan for their particular needs at their property.

You will make recommendations and offer advice on the best broadband plans available in the NZ marketplace and you will help with basic technical and broadband plan queries until resolution

Delivering consistently excellent customer satisfaction and first ‘call’ resolution on every interaction with a customer is our goal. 

The Broadband Compare team you will join is exceptionally committed to delivering excellent service at all times.  We are always looking to exceed our customer's expectations and you will need to have the ability to proactively manage all issues and see them through to a positive resolution. 

Initially an office based role in our HQ on Karangahape Rd in Auckland.  Hours are Mon to Fri, 0900 - 1700 for this role but we are considering a move to a rotational roster of 0800 – 2200.  We would therefore be open to part time or job sharing applications.
