  • Leading on projects, liaising with other stakeholders to meet and exceed goals for this team (e.g. CSAT, retention etc)

Join us in this role, and you'll have the opportunity to:

  • Manage a team of inhouse operational transformation specialists and co-create a best in class playbook for outsourced agents will support our high-priority customers
