Dyson - National Manager - Customer Service (7-10 yrs)
National Manager- Customer Service
Purpose of Role :
This role leads Dyson Service Engineers to provide on-site, in-home and set-up services to Dyson owners. The main objective of the role is to champion the customer and their needs, aligning the strategy and operating model to meet business objectives, driving best in class service through capable, engaged customer facing teams and delivering an integrated customer service strategy.
Dyson Story :
- Dyson is a global technology company with a philosophy led by James Dyson. He creates radical iconic re-inventions that work, perform and look very different. Driven by frustration, James invented the first bag less vacuum cleaner but being first wasn- t easy. His competitors were giants and didn- t let him past without a fight. It took 5,127 prototypes and 15 years of perseverance before James finally launched the Dyson DC01. Within 18 months it became the best-selling cleaner in the UK.
- Today, Dyson marries innovative technology, researched in its own high technology and secret laboratories, with leading-edge design to produce products that work better. The process from initial idea to finished Dyson machine encompasses multiple RDD locations and thousands of engineers in the UK and Southeast Asia. Thousands of engineers instead of one man. Acres of engineering laboratories have replaced a backyard coach house. And at a speed incomparable to Dyson's origin.
- Dyson files hundreds of patents per year, invests millions in research at leading universities around the world, and has a pipeline of technology stretching 25 years into the future. But it remains family-owned, plotting its own path, not bowing to shareholders or reporting to the stock exchange. All this means more investment in risky, exciting, varied and surprising products for the future.
- The mission remains the same; to solve problems that others ignore with exciting new ideas that turn convention on its head. Dyson leads the way, transforming every category entered with radical and iconic re-inventions of everyday devices, setting the benchmark for others to follow.
