Join us now as a Quality & Customer Experience Manager, working proactively with our customer facing teams to ensure we deliver a consistently brilliant service that our customers deserve.

Reporting to the Head of Quality & Customer Experience, you’ll oversea an effective best practice framework, through which improvement objectives can be delivered. You’ll lead your team to investigate complex customer complaints in a challenging and time bound environment, in line with the Housing Ombudsman’s Complaint Handling Code. Working collaboratively with frontline teams, you’ll adopt a solution focused approach to discovering underlying issues through root cause analysis, driving early dispute resolution and embedding a culture of brilliant customer service to ensure solutions are found and put in place to prevent future complaints.

You’ll also assist in the development of continuous improvement within customer service and use customer feedback to increase reliability and consistency in the delivery of service standard across the organisation, as well as escalated complaint handling.

  • You’ll have extensive experience of delivering service improvements in a heavily regulated, operational environment – experience within Housing Associations and/or Local Authorities, accompanied by knowledge of the Social Housing White paper and/or practical Housing Management experience would be beneficial.
  • You’ll have experience of leading, managing and developing a team.
  • You’ll be competent at analysing and interpreting complex information, and be able to provide remedies and solutions that maintains customer service at the forefront of all decision making.
  • It goes without saying, you’ll have strong communications skills, both written and verbal, with demonstrable experience of influencing, negotiating and engaging with cross functional customer facing teams. The ability to be highly organised and to balance competing priorities is a must!
