About The Role

Are you an organised individual, with a passion for delivering excellent customer service?

As a Planner, you will be the first point of contact for planning and scheduling all repairs. You will enjoy working with our customers, to ensure they are given a high level quality service with excellent customer care.

This an exciting and fast paced opportunity. In the last year the Planning team scheduled 5,500 jobs classed as priority number 1 and 16,000 for responsive repairs – in which case, you should have forward thinking and problem solving skills.

On a day to day basis, you will spend a lot of your time on the phone, liaising with colleagues and scheduling all resources efficiently. Experience in a similar role is not essential as full training will be given. The most important thing is that you have excellent decision making skills and put customer service at the heart of everything you do.

This role is being offered on a full time, permanent basis in our custom built office in Exeter.
