Customer Happiness Manager

RIXO is looking for a passionate and personable Customer Happiness Manager. We’re growing quickly, and now need a leader to shape the strategy for every touchpoint in our customer journey – delivering experiences with wow factor every single time.  Our ideal candidate for this role is obsessed with innovative and positive customer experiences; has a strong vision for what brilliant customer service will look like in the 2020s; has the know-how to deliver that vision and believes passionately in always doing the right thing for the customer.  You’ll espouse our RIXO values – savvy, real, curious, humble and positive, and ideally have prior experience of a start-up environment – with a willingness to roll up your sleeves and swim outside your lane when needed.

What you’ll do:


Customer Experience Strategy & Leadership

  • Collaborate with senior stakeholders to define the customer experience strategy
  • Bring experience of industry best practice to our programme, and use it to build a world-leading experience that gets customers talking
  • Collaborate with the e-commerce director and other stakeholders to introduce enquiry management technology/platforms to our customer experience journey; streamlining existing processes
  • Take the lead on updating customer experience processes, ensuring they are in line with both legal and industry standards
  • Compile the weekly customer feedback report, ensuring voice of the customer is shared with key stakeholders and the senior leadership team


Customer Experience Innovation & Improvement

  • Introduce performance insight to drive enhancements to contact routing, time to first response and full resolution
  • Analyse contact data, quantitatively and qualitatively, to identify opportunities to reduce the need for contact through root cause resolution or providing customers better self-serve options
  • Partner with cross-functional stakeholders to implement tailored policies, procedures, and other relevant programmes to tackle these opportunities
  • Investigate new approaches and technology that will enable us to deliver an even better experience: e.g. live chat
  • Provide monthly reports and feedback to summarise team performance, customer feedback and progress against your service improvement plans


Team Development & Leadership

  • Lead the team to ensure there is a positive, motivational, supportive working environment, whilst being accountable for ensuring all agreed SLAs and KPIs are met at all times, whilst delivering an exceptional experience
  • Recruit & develop a high performing team – defining productivity targets and resource needs (including planning for operational peaks) as our business grows
  • As the team grows, identify training needs for your direct reports and build robust training plans to deliver rock star service to every customer, every time


Who you are:

  • 5+ years of progressive, relevant work experience with at least 2+ years of experience leading and managing teams
  • Experience using contact management technology to deliver exemplary service
  • Obsessed with the customer, with a good understanding of where the benchmark sits for world-class service
  • Extremely hands on and happy to work on the frontline when needed
  • Highly proactive: you drive change and improvement without being asked, and you’re not afraid to suggest improvements to processes – We are a start-up and are learning along the way too!
  • You’re exceptionally organised and thrive on solving problems and working closely with people, especially under pressure and managing multiple, and often conflicting, priorities at the same time
  • First-class written communication and interpersonal skills; personable yet persistent
  • Highly proactive, entrepreneurial and self-motivated with a strong work ethic and go-getter attitude


We’ll give you some bonus points for:

  • Previous implementation of contact management technology
  • Additional European languages would be advantageous
  • Experience of a start-up environment
  • Experience of wider marketing functions and the critical role customer experience plays in the wider marketing organisation
  • Previous experience managing styling, sales, or online fraud
