The Role

We have an excellent opportunity for a Customer Relations Manager to join our Customer Service Centre in Coventry. This is a key role within the business that will see you lead our Customer Relations Team to efficiently deal with grievances in order to improve the customer experience and resolve formal complaints.

The Customer Relations Team's primary function is to manage customer complaints which can vary from housing maintenance issues, rent disputes and external complaints from third parties. The team liaises with external groups and individuals including the Housing Ombudsman, MP's and other third party representatives. You will ensure that the team works with all areas of the business, ensuring that customers are responded to in a timely manner and feedback is given where appropriate.

A key part of the role will be to identify areas for improvement, highlighting root cause of customer facing issues, mitigating risk to the business and supporting the Customer Service Centre in driving improvements to customer service delivery.

About You

You must have experience of leading a team within a complaint handling environment. This should include dealing directly with customer enquiries by email, phone and letter. You will be tasked with motivating and supporting the team providing training, appraisals and dealing with any disciplinary matters.

You will have experience of working with stakeholders including dealing with senior/executive level colleagues as well as third party individuals and groups.

Experience of working within a fast-paced customer service environment is essential. Successful candidates will also have strong interpersonal skills as it will be necessary to build strong working relationships with partners across the business.
