Job Summary:

We're looking for an exceptional Head of Customer Experience Optimization (m/f/d) to join our fast-growing team at Cazoo, helping to transform the way people buy used cars and making buying a car no different to buying any other product online today.
Reporting into the EU Customer Experience Director, you will be responsible for delivering a 5* customer support throughout the customer journey in buying, financing or subscribing to a car across in Europe. You will be overseeing the development and refinement of the customer experience delivered across our customer facing teams, including our Customer Centre Specialists, Delivery Specialists and Service teams. 
You will be someone that enjoys working in a fast paced environment with a hands on attitude and at heart with a data-driven mindset, sharing fresh ideas for how to apply best practice to improve efficiency by reducing operating costs while increasing productivity.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Service Design: You continuously evaluate, expand and design the existing customer journey across off-line touchpoints. To do so, you consider the entire service process and ensure that customers find the right offer for their needs at the most efficient touchpoints possible. Here, you consider both analog and digital touchpoints throughout Europe. This spans all customer facing teams, including our central customer support teams, customer center specialists, delivery specialists, our service teams as well as the delivery specialists.  You will also partner closely with the Head of Customer Support to define the role which the central Customer Support Team plays in the experience. 
  • Project and process optimization: Take a data based approach to measuring customer experience and act quickly to recommend, implement and measure changes. This could span updating or introducing policies, processes, systems or tools. You regularly evaluate the performance data with the Head of Customer Support and Head of CX Training & Development to evaluate the effectiveness of leadership and training. You build and identify opportunities to improve processes and systems together with the Head of Customer Support.  
  • Rapid growth: You will be a strong advocate for the customer across the organization and act as the “voice of the customer”, driving customer-obsessed decisions based on deep customer insight. Due to the ever-growing demands of our rapidly expanding international team, your role is to constantly challenge the status quo, keep track of existing touchpoints based on key performance indicators, adapt or evolve according to the needs of our rapidly growing business.

You will oversee Customer Insight, Customer Experience Service Design and Customer Experience Optimization. You’ll need to roll up your sleeves in the early days and take direct responsibility for designing customer journeys and writing scripts for customer facing teams. At the same time, you will have to hire your respective team.    
  • Quality Control: You will work with multi-functional teams across the business, building close relationships with international team leaders to ensure that the desired customer experience is delivered on a day-to-day basis. It is important to continuously review and measure the efficiency of the measures to carry out necessary improvements. In doing so, you identify and overcome "implementation blockers". Within the Customer function, you will partner closely with CRM, Content and Digital Marketing teams to understand and optimise the end-to-end customer journey. In addition to the Logistics and Operations teams, you will also work closely with the Product Team, flagging opportunities for further exploration.
