Job Description:

This is a new role, and another BIG one as we expand, the right candidate will be overseeing our customer service team. We are looking for the right person who not only puts the customer first, also all those teammates who they will be responsible for. Not only do we want you to oversee the team, we want you to help expand the business, so this role is going to be perfect if you are a commercially minded people person who knows how to build awesome self-sufficient teams.

  1. Supervise, train, and mentor a team of customer service representatives to ensure they provide excellent service as well as conducting regular performance evaluations and provide constructive feedback.
  2. Develop and implement training programs to enhance team skills and knowledge alongside fostering a positive and productive work environment that encourages teamwork and professional growth.
  3. Oversee day-to-day operations of the customer service department to ensure timely and efficient resolution of customer inquiries and issues. Handle complex or escalated customer complaints and disputes, ensuring satisfactory resolutions.
  4. Implement and maintain customer service policies, procedures and standards whilst continuing to monitor and improve customer service processes to enhance overall customer satisfaction.
  5. Prepare regular reports on team performance, customer feedback, and operational efficiency for senior management.
  6. Oversee the implementation and maintenance of customer service tools and software, such as CRM systems, helpdesk platforms, and communication channels ensuring the team is adequately trained on the use of these tools to maximise productivity and service quality.
