About

Thirdfort are fundamentally changing the house buying and selling process. Home buyers are currently subject to identity and anti-money laundering checks at multiple times throughout a transaction, including from estate agents, mortgage brokers and lawyers. In addition, these professionals manually input data many times over which is inefficient and takes time away from them providing a great service.

We have developed the Thirdfort app to address these challenges. We leverage Open Banking, electronic identification, data analytics and AI to streamline the administration of onboarding clients and radically improve the process for all parties. Long term, we aim to become the trusted transaction platform for the sector.

Our platform is currently focused on property lawyers to enable them to carry out digital identity and AML checks through the Thirdfort app. Our vision is to supply this same technology to brokers and agents to streamline their processes.

We are a small but rapidly growing team that is backed by some of the industry’s best, including the founder of Zoopla, the Land Registry and top UK law firm Mishcon de Reya.

Description

This is a great opportunity for a capable and hungry customer support professional to join Thirdfort as our first hire in this position and as one of the first employees in our new Manchester office.

In 2019 we have grown from three to 12 people. Since launching our platform eight months ago, we are growing rapidly and now need a Customer Support Executive to assist our increasing number of clients. We are opening a new office in the centre of Manchester in January 2019 and are looking to hire two or three people to help set this up. Our vision is to build this Manchester office into our key client excellence hub where we will grow our customer support, customer success and sales functions.

You will work closely with our Manager of Customer Success who will be based in Manchester and our Co-Founders, Head of Sales, Head of Marketing, Product and Tech teams which are based in London. You will also spend some time in London to ensure the team stays as connected as possible. You will be jumping into a fast, dynamic and ambitious culture that prioritises collaboration, openness and continuous learning.

The job will involve taking ownership of Customer Support and being on the frontline as the first point of contact for Thirdfort customers. You will need to get to grips with our product quickly so you can deal with queries and provide excellent support. You will be integral to feeding back issues and suggesting improvements which will contribute to building a market leading product. You will also be central to continually helping us streamline the customer support process and make it as efficient as possible.

You will be part of the initial team that sets up our Manchester office and will have the opportunity to establish the processes, culture and inner workings of this new part of the Thirdfort business. There is also room for career progression as we intend to scale the team in Manchester fast and you will have the opportunity to help in this process with hiring, training and onboarding new staff.
