Hello, we’re Utility Warehouse

You probably won't have heard much about us, but we're one of the UK's biggest, home-grown success stories of the last 20 years.

We're a FTSE 250 business and knocking on the door of £1 billion in annual revenue.

We provide your energy, broadband, mobile and home insurance in one. So you can stop thinking about bills, passwords and price comparisons, and get on with the important things in life.

And we know we’re onto something - but we’re only just getting started…

About the Role

As part of our award-winning Customer Services team, you'll manage technical issues such as slow internet speeds, poor or no connectivity, noisy line or no dial tone faults, data and email retrieval issues, billing and barring issues and much more across our telecoms products.

As a team we are mainly technical, but there will be occasions where we help out our colleagues in other areas by supporting customers with general queries too.

This isn’t a role for the faint-hearted. No two customers, problems, or resolution journeys are the same and it’s our job to ensure that whatever the issue, our customers receive the award-winning customer service which UW is known for.


  • You’ll be the first point of contact for our customers across our multiple contact channels (mainly phone, but may also include email and live chat)
  • You’ll be delivering a first class customer experience to every caller, going above and beyond to resolve their issue
  • You’ll be looking to resolve customer issues there and then - first call resolution is one of the key focuses of our team
  • You’ll be working with sometimes limited information provided by the customer
  • You’ll be troubleshooting everything from the service entry point (phone socket) up to and including some device support (for more info visit the troubleshooting section of our website or click here)
  • You’ll offer new or additional services where appropriate.

Additional info:

You will need to be available between the hours of 09:30 and 17:30 for your first six weeks to complete our training programme.

About you

You’ll be a natural problem solver with a keen interest in giving great customer service and working with technology. You may not have experience working in a technical contact center, but you’ll need to understand the basics behind how different broadband services are delivered (ADSL, PSTN, FTTC and FTTP).

You’ll also need to understand the basics of home/internal broadband networks (LAN’s), the frequencies they’re delivered on (2.4ghz and 5ghz) and how to resolve issues such as latency, internal Wi-Fi obstacles, DNS and external factors such as firewall and browser issues.

Don’t forget though, you’ll need to be currently residing in the UK with eligibility to live and work in the UK too.

What you’ll need

We will supply the equipment needed for you to do the role but you will still need a stable and strong internet connection. Our minimum requirement for internet speed is 25Mbps Download and 4Mbps Upload.

A dedicated, quiet work space with a work station, plenty of natural light, access to fresh air and no distractions. This cannot be a communal or space that is shared by other household members

Don’t forget though, you’ll need to be currently residing in the UK with eligibility to live and work in the UK too.
