We are a leading digital bank on a mission to disrupt the banking industry. We’ve built an app with smart money management tools to help our customers live a healthier financial life.
As our customer numbers continue to grow, so does our need to hire fantastic people to serve them. Our Customer Onboarding team members are our greatest asset – representing Starling to the people, and businesses, that rely on us to help manage their financial lives. As a Customer Onboarding Team Member, you’ll be responsible for ensuring our customers have a great first experience with us, opening personal or business current accounts. If you’re able to work in an efficient way whilst making confident decisions, this could be the role for you!
Starting salary of £24,500 pro rata. This is an entry level role with a huge focus on your attention to detail and willingness to learn – you don’t need previous banking experience!
What does a day in the Onboarding team look like?
As Starling is a branchless-bank, we don’t ask customers to provide paper copies of their ID documentation or join a long physical queue to open their accounts. Our onboarding process is simple, quick and efficient. Customers can open accounts through our App by recording a quick video, filling out their personal information and uploading photos of their documentation. Your role as an Onboarding Team Member would be to review the information provided, liaise with customers through our App or via a phone call for more information and approve or decline their application. We want our customers to have a speedy onboarding experience, this means we’re looking for motivated, diligent Starlings to join our team.
After being accepted to Starling for a personal account, we get to work on our customers’ business account applications. Our App guides customers through some questions about their business – about their corporations status, the type of business that they are and information about where their customers and suppliers are. There is ample opportunity to add information or upload photos of documents that verify the business. Your role here is to explore the information provided, understand whether it fully supports the application and approve or decline the account. This requires a keen eye for detail, but also an inquisitive nature leading to confident, timely decisions.
Which team will I join?
We interview candidates based on requirements for both personal and business onboarding, after your interview we will make a decision which route is best for you based on your skills and experience.
Shifts & Working Arrangements:
We enable our customers to manage their money 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Whenever they need us, we will be there. We are looking for people who can commit to 15 hours per week between 1.30pm-10pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Your shifts will stay the same every week (once your training is complete) so you will know your shifts in advance to help find that work life balance.
