You'll be working in a fast-paced environment taking around 100 calls per day. No two calls will be the same and could range from a standard breakdown call to providing safety advice, updating and changing a policy to dealing with dissatisfied or vulnerable customers. As some calls you deal with could be more complex or involve distressed customers, we like to ensure that there is a strong focus on teamwork, with everyone there to back each other through any difficult situations

  • Supporting our customers through their breakdown journey by actively listening; you’ll provide guidance with your warm and reassuring tone
  • Showing our customers they’re valued by understanding their situation, keeping the conversation constructive
  • Using detailed scripts to gather information from the call and apply logic to assess the best course of action
  • Pushing for better by using resources available to offer the best customer service
  • Maintaining composure whilst reassuring customers, providing safety advice and promptly sending support
  • Retaining high volumes of call information whilst updating multiple IT systems accurately and swiftly

We’re looking for someone to become:

  • A guardian: you’ll be supportive with the ability to remain warm and kind, even in the face of conflict
  • A champion: you’ll make our customers feel respected and valued
  • A problem solver: you’ll understand incoming information and make logical decisions quickly and efficiently
  • A self-starter: you’ll be proactive taking pride and ownership in your work while working towards targets
  • A composed operator:you’ll cope well in pressurised situations, maintaining resilience whilst managing setbacks effectively
  • A multitasker: you’ll be able to retain and sort incoming information accurately and swiftly

Here's what we offer you:

  • The opportunity to join and learn within a team that’s as driven as they are supportive
  • 23 days annual leave, with the ability to buy holiday
  • Free breakdown membership
  • Employee discount scheme that gives you access to great discounts on healthcare, shopping, holidays and more
  • Discounts on AA products including car and home insurance
  • Access to employee inclusivity awareness networks

The Recruitment Process

No CV, no problem!

We believe that you can be a great fit for this job based on your behaviours and natural abilities, rather than your past experience, so you don't need to submit a CV with your application. Instead, simply complete our application form and you'll be sent a series of games that will identify your natural strengths and preferences and will determine your suitability for the role. In return, we’ll automatically provide you with some valuable feedback.

Your interview

If you fit the behavioural profile to thrive within the role and environment, you will then be invited to attend a final stage interview which lasts approximately 60mins. You’ll meet with our friendly interviewers for a competency-based interview that contains a role play.


Once we’ve made you an offer and completed your pre-employment checks, you’ll receive your contract.

Training and going live on the phones!

From the first day of your journey at the AA, we’re here to support you at every step. Our expert trainers will guide you through your first few weeks of your induction where you should expect to learn lots about how you’ll support our customers in a fun, collaborative and engaging learning environment.
