Bloom & Wild

Customer Service
London, UK
Posted on Wednesday, June 26, 2024
Hi, we’re Bloom & Wild. We don’t just send flowers. We help our customers to care wildly. Caring wildly is celebrating the little things we all do for each other every day. Not just the big occasions. It’s being there for the highs. Stepping up for the lows.
Care has been at the heart of our business from the start. From the products we source, and the packaging we send them in, to the way we look after our colleagues, our customers, our planet, and the communities around us.
Founded in 2013, our mission back then was to make sending and receiving flowers the joy that it should be, by harnessing technology, brand and letterbox delivery. We announced £75 million Series D funding in 2021 and that same year acquired bloomon in The Netherlands and Bergamotte in France. Together, we’ve fulfilled and delivered over 20 million orders (and counting!), making us the largest direct to consumer flower business in Europe.
Now home to a family of 3 beautiful brands, we’re driven by our vision to create the destination for making life a little more thoughtful and beautiful. And we won't stop at flowers and plants. Starting with the Bloom & Wild brand, we're expanding our gifting offering to other categories like cakes, candles and cocktails. This is all part of our ambition to build Europe's #1 direct to consumer gifting destination.
🛠️ Customer Delight @ Bloom & Wild
On the frontlines of our customer experience, we work hard to find ways to bring joy to our customers every day. We work around the clock to delight our customers at every turn - ensuring no question goes unanswered, and always looking for ways to improve the customer experience within the team and across the company. And the good news is, we're growing!
Our work environment is fast yet supportive and encouraging, and you would be a part of a tight-knit team that sits alongside our operations squad. This is a great chance to join a high-growth startup and apply your existing skills and experience within a fun and passionate team.
⚙️ What you'll be doing:
You’ll help with a range of inbound queries; ranging from delivery to flower conditioning (don’t worry we provide you with training!). Most importantly, you'll be the voice of our customer.
This is a full time position and we're looking for someone who is available and committed to working over the weekend consistently. The role requires occasional working from our London-based office.

Responsibilities:

  • Provide inbound support to our customers via email, phone or live chat, making sure their queries are met with care and delight
  • Keep a finger on the pulse when speaking with customers; to proactively identify trends in their feedback and voice to the rest of the team for potential improvements to our processes, product and technology
  • Support other members of our Customer Delight team with queries and mentoring new joiners
  • Assist with day-to-day operational processes e.g. supplier management, order processing, delivery queries
  • Adhere to call and email targets set by the team

✅ You’ll love this role if you…

  • Are open to working flexibly - rotational weekday and weekend work patterns will be required
  • Ideally have experience in a consumer facing company with a strong customer ethos
  • Are compassionate and have brilliant people skills
  • Have experience and aptitude with major MS office software
  • Have experience working towards targets, meeting and exceeding these
  • Above all else, we’re looking for someone to bring high energy and positivity to this role, in keeping with our company values
  • Dutch or German language skills would be a plus!
These are some of the skills and experience we think will enable success in this role, but please don’t worry if you are missing some of these. We’re committed to building a team made up of different strengths, skills and experiences, so if you’re excited about our values, passionate about what you do and would like to join us in doing things more thoughtfully, we’d love to hear from you.
🧭 Our ways of working
We do things a little bit differently. From inventing letterbox flowers to founding The Thoughtful Marketing Movement. We’re big on collaboration, empathy, knowledge sharing and growth, and our values drive our priorities every day:
Lead change for good: we have the guts to try new things and step up to do what matters most
Think deeply, act swiftly: we make sure there’s thoughtful rationale behind our approach and always act swiftly to implement ideas
Care wildly: we pour care and creativity into everything we do and pay attention to the things that make a difference
Stay open, be curious: we’re open about what we’re doing and why, and we welcome challenges from each other
We really believe in the power of face-to-face connections - be that through a shared project, a learning and development opportunity, or an after work social - and trust our teams to make the right decisions (for them and us) about where and how they work each day. Our working patterns are flexible and vary across the business, depending on the type of work, need for collaboration, and personal and wellbeing circumstances.
🏡 Belonging @ Bloom & Wild Group
We know that we learn through our differences, and building a diverse team has always been central to creating the best experience for our customers. We value all backgrounds, perspectives, ideas and experiences, and encourage everyone to share their opinions openly within our caring and inclusive team.
🌟 (Some of) The good stuff
