About the role

We’re looking for a service advisor at our Harry Fairbairn BMW branch in Dumfries.

This customer-facing role will be a great fit for someone who’s already worked in a customer service position, and genuinely enjoys exceeding expectations and creating positive outcomes.

Day-to-day duties

  • Handling all customer requirements for service and vehicle repairs in an efficient and professional manner.
  • Liaising with the workshop and bodyshop to progress work through the system.
  • Controlling all computer-based jobs, purchasing and invoice processes, ensuring the financial interests of the customer and the company are protected.
  • Letting customers know of any faults or repairs found on their vehicle and providing them with clear and accurate solutions.
  • Treating any dissatisfied customers with empathy and understanding, reassuring them that we can solve any issues should they arise.
  • Maintaining customer records such as vehicle details and service histories accurately and efficiently.
  • Maintaining knowledge of aftersales products and services, upselling where appropriate.
  • Making sure the customer database is updated and accurate at all times.

Essential skills

  • A passion for great customer service and the confidence to resolve any issues that may arise efficiently and in a timely manner.
  • Demonstrable computer literacy and knowledge of IT systems and applications.
  • The ability to multi-task and be highly adaptable within a busy environment.
  • Strong communication and influencing skills, with the ability and desire to explain complex information accurately and concisely to help our customers.
  • Strong organisational skills to schedule work effectively, balancing the needs of the customer and the capacity of the workshop.
  • Ability to prioritise your workload.
  • Ability and willingness to work with defined processes and guidelines.
  • Good core administration skills to accurately capture customer details to the required standards.
  • A full UK driving licence.

Nice to have (but not essential)

  • Experience of upselling products or services is desirable.
