You’ll excel at motivating others, supporting your team of DCC agents to consistently achieve and maintain outstanding standards of customer service for all our customers.

What you'll be doing

A proven leader, you’ll support your team of DCC agents to deliver excellent customer service through regular mentoring and coaching. And you’ll recognise that it’s vital that we understand the importance of our customer needs, as well as exceeding performance KPI's and regulatory requirements. Bringing your energy and passion for customer care, you’ll support your team, ensuring your agents demonstrate empathy, take ownership of challenges and solve those complex problems. Working alongside your team, you’ll monitor and support your agents so they’re always striving to understand our customer needs and deliver the best customer service possible.
