Do the right thing for our customers, our company and your career. 

The Account Consultancy Team (ACT) is based within the Commercial Servicing Network Europe. This Team is a multi-market team and we are tasked with assisting Managers of Account Development (MADs) with enquiries from external Clients as well as urgent, complex cases.

This will involve interacting with all necessary departments or teams within American Express to respond to and resolve urgent enquiries from GCP account managers and written cases. The resolution of these cases raised is not the end of the journey: ACEs will review if a root cause analysis is required to discover pain points in our processes that are impacting our business.

You will work cases from GCS on the phone or CLIC and you will use your outstanding Relationship Care skills to aide resolution. For cases outside your range of knowledge, you will review who is best placed to solve them and retain ownership until confirming their resolution to the clients.

ACT is a vibrant, very collaborative team with a great teamwork environment. Team members relish a challenge, display problem solving abilities and enjoy the prospect of facing new types of enquiries every day.
