For more than 30 years, Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) has helped innovators, enterprises and their investors move bold ideas forward, fast. Today, we provide a full range of banking and financing services to businesses of all sizes in innovation centres around the world. SVB Financial Group, the parent company of Silicon Valley Bank, has had a presence in the UK since 2004. The bank is committed to supporting disruptive technology and life science businesses within the UK’s vibrant innovation sector, including The Foundry, Made.com and ECI Partners.
SVB Financial Group has approximately 2000+ employees, over $40 billion in assets, and serves entrepreneurs around the world through its 28 offices in the United States and international operations in the UK, Ireland, Israel and China.
SVB has built a culture based on five core values: being enterprising, ethical, driven, dedicated and united. Both internally and with our clients, we value professionalism and emphasise its importance in communication, responsiveness and approach.
SVB’s singular focus on technology and life science businesses and the venture capital and private equity firms that serve them, the breadth of the services it provides to its clients, its global growth strategy, and its core values create a unique and satisfying environment for members of the team.
Client Service Advisors (CSA) serve as the primary contact for telephone and email requests including technical support for SVB clients relating to Cash Management and Debit/Charge Card related products. CSAs are responsible for understanding, researching and/or escalating a variety of client service and/or operational enquiries. Many SVB clients will be global, holding accounts in the UK &/or US, so setting client expectations and delivering consistent follow up with them is a critical deliverable in this role. The CSA is accountable for delivering a one-stop client experience and ensuring seamless coordination when other colleagues are engaged. CSAs have to demonstrate experience in the ability to identify and resolve client problems/issues, and product and service issues. CSAs have accountability for understanding and adhering to bank policies and procedures, complying with legal and regulatory requirements are also critical components in this role. Collaboration with other CSA colleagues and operational support teams is imperative to delivering on the client experience and satisfaction, and ultimately contributing to the company-wide net promoter score (NPS) targets and objectives.
CSAs must be able to assess client service situations, direct solutions, and provide a high level of proactive follow-up to clients. They must be articulate and able to discuss all of the bank’s primary products and services comfortably with clients. They develop relationships through outstanding service support to SVB clients, and represent the SVB brand.
A “continuous improvement” focus is required to drive improvements in efficiency and to spot opportunities to automate, simplify and streamline in order to enhance the client experience and further differentiate SVB.
