We offer relaxed and friendly working environment in exchange for committed and positive attitude and the willingness to hit company targets. Our company employs a lot of students as we always try to offer hours to fit around the studies and offer an opportunity to pick some extra hours during holiday breaks. 

This is a contact centre role. The primary activities are making outbound calls to help progress applications made for credit or taking inbound calls from applicants. It is calling individuals who have shown interest, therefore it is not a cold-calling based role.
