Customer Support Executive

full-time Matr London

In order to deliver one-to-one maths tutoring, we have a platform that allows children in the UK to connect with our tutors across the world. Your main role is to ensure the smooth experience of our school customers. You’ll achieve this by responding to general queries from customers, specialising in queries regarding booking, credits and session times and coordinating booking across the organisation. You will keep a close eye on experience indicators, monitoring and planning and implementing initiatives to improve them. Further to this, you will provide account-management like support to schools who are having a consistently sub-optimal experience with us, and assist in the identification of schools whose issues need to be escalated to the Customer Support Manager as ‘Target’ schools. In addition there will be the opportunity to get involved with other projects, such as improving user experience, and providing feedback to other teams.

Responsibilities and tasks include:

  • Resolving general customer queries
    • Point of contact for any of our customers when they have a query over phone, email and instant chat. Deal with these effectively and efficiently to delight our customers, with joint ownership of team KPIs.
  • Booking specialist
    • Coordinate booking processes across the organisation, giving guidance to the Sales and wider Customer team.
    • Be the main point of contact to schools for queries regarding booking, session times, credits and invoicing.
    • Analyse incoming queries and identify areas where we can become more efficient, improve the process or journey.
    • Reconcile bookings and Salesforce reports.
  • Experience monitoring
    • Assist the Customer Support Manager in establishing which experience indicators we should be more closely monitoring, in addition to attendance and audio.
    • Monitor these indicators and plan initiatives to improve them, consulting the wider team, Manager, and Retention Executive.
    • Work with schools to improve their experience wherever possible, aiming to reduce the volume of schools who reach ‘Target’ status. Escalate Target level issues to the Customer Support Manager.
  • Internal Coordination and Communication
    • Ensuring all your interactions with customers are recorded and kept up to date.
    • Communicating and coordinating with the wider team to ensure a seamless customer experience for everyone we work with.

You will also be involved in ad hoc tasks and projects which come up within the team where needed, such as

  • Maintaining and dispatching necessary equipment to customers
  • Supporting the team in setting-up a new customer
  • Upsell and Retention calls
  • Supporting on Matr
  • Providing feedback to the other teams in order to improve user experience
