Your Contact Centre Manager Role:

We are looking for an experienced Contact Centre manager with a track record of success and in particular knowledge of running a small Contact Centre for a period of no longer than 4-6 weeks to provide the Executives with the technical advice to oversee the changes required to address the issues identified and other critical issues that might come up during the diagnosis stage. This is a short and sharp intervention but crucially we are looking for someone that will in a short period transfer knowledge and skills to the existing team and provide the Executive with a performance template to track the performance of the team on a real time basis.

- Develop KPI balanced scorecard
- Review and put in place appropriate business process as applicable
- Introduce quality control checks system for the Customer & Community Manager(CCM) to reduce error rate in key areas where the performance of the customer service centre impacts on the business. This is to be developed in conjunction with key stake holder`s IT, finance, maintenance, operations etc
- KPIs need to be developed that meet the needs and expectations of customers. It is recommended that a new set of KPI`s are developed that are used across both housing and repairs initially with a single set being used once integration is complete. KPI`s should include:
- 95% of Calls answered (calls abandoned under 10 seconds should be removed)
- A service level of 80% of calls answered within 20 seconds instead of 90/30
- Call quality (to be measured against a scoring mechanism for recorded calls)
- Customer satisfaction (for the Contact Centre transaction rather than the whole experience which should be measured elsewhere- we would recommend after call automated surveys which we can help you with)
- Staff satisfaction a measure to be developed
- First point of resolution to be defined clearly so that it is clearly understood.


There are numerous opportunities to improve the service but making changes to the Repairs operation will make the most significant difference at this time. There is a need for greater control and management of the Contact Centre service in order to deliver better service in a value for money environment.
