Customer Excellence Associate (Internship)

Operations /
Internship /
In 2017, our founders started Sarwa due to a lack of financial services offered to most of the world, and out of a need to help empower people in the region to invest in their financial future. Sarwa is poised to continue growing into the go-to platform for people to grow their wealth.

We do this through expert, affordable and easy investing. We're a small team working on the region's first and fastest growing investment and personal finance platform, making investing easy, low-cost and transparent, with a human touch woven into every step of the process.

We are a remote-first team. Where you choose to work is up to you — we have an office in Dubai and Abu Dhabi that you can utilize as often or little as you'd like. 

We’re looking for a Customer Excellence Associate to provide our customers with a one-of-a-kind experience through offering exceptional support to our clients. You will be the bridge between our operations and the customer experience. Your primary role will be to resolve any issues or answer any questions customers may have in their entire experience with Sarwa. You’ll also be the first point of contact for our clients. This means that in addition to handling our support line, you’re proactively finding solutions to outstanding problems. 

Customer Excellence is one of the defining aspects of our brand, and we pride ourselves for making every single client feel special, respected and trusting of our service. This is what makes Sarwa the preferred investment platform in the region.
To succeed in this role, you must be genuinely excited to help customers, a natural proactive problem-solver, and a level-headed, patient person.

    • High attention to detail - you always catch mistakes such as typos, no matter how minor
    • You are able to multitask, prioritize, and manage time effectively
    • You have a BSc/BA in finance or a related field

What you'll do

    • Manage large amounts of tickets via incoming phone calls, live chat, and emails
    • Escalate and route client concerns to the appropriate team, and follow up to ensure they are solved
    • Assist clients in operational tasks such as account openings
    • Strategically think about and provide improvements to enhance operational efficiency
    • Act as the internal voice of the customer, and vocalize customer pain points
    • Handle customer complaints, provide appropriate solutions and alternatives within the time limits; follow up to ensure resolution.
    • Take the extra mile to engage customers and achieve world-class customer satisfaction ratings
