Job Description


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

Every one of our Credit Specialists represent the American Express brand.

American Express is a global service company, providing Card Members with exceptional access to products and experiences that enrich lives and build business success.

In the Spend Enablement team, you will be responsible for managing first contact resolution with Card Members whose accounts have been set up for a specialised spend review. You will make sound decisions on lending, taking into consideration the Card Member’s payment history and other mediating factors. You will think on your feet and make judgement calls regarding each account.

  • Review card holder spending needs and make lending decisions;
  • Negotiate for the collection of payments from high risk cardholders;
  • Uphold the American Express brand image and customer loyalty through outstanding customer service;
  • Work to the highest standards with a balanced delivery of both customer experience and shareholder value.

Offer of employment with American Express is conditioned upon the successful completion of a background verification check, subject to applicable laws and regulations.
