Our Service Delivery Manager’s purpose is to drive the performance of their teams and team managers, whilst ensuring staff engagement and delivering solutions to problems. As an SDM, if you’re not looking at intra-day forecast reports, dialler adherence, productivity stats or Grade of service, then you’d better be analysing CSAT scores, measuring the effectiveness of your Team Managers or reporting feedback to your line manager! All aspects of delivering service has to result in a happy Customer and a happy Client.
Service Delivery Manager / Deputy Operations Manager Responsibilities:
• As a member of the management team, you have to set the benchmark for the rest of the Operation to follow. You will be visible, confident, helpful and trustworthy and be a go-to person on the contact centre floor. You will develop your TMs to be the next SDM and support them in developing their teams. You will be a key cog in the planning wheel and ensure demand is met by assisting resource planning to gather Overtime & shift swaps. • In order for the overall department to function, you must ensure that your area is working with and not against the other teams. Communication is a key component as you will have your eyes and ears close to the ground but will also have an understanding on the more strategic and long-term elements of the campaign. Key operational metrics will be in place and your dedication to exceeding these targets and ensuring the tools and processes are in place to succeed should be second to none. • As a Line Manager to the Team Managers, you have possibly the most important set of leaders in the Business looking up to you for guidance and support. If your TMs feel empowered & engaged, this will transcend into their teams and one of the biggest hurdles within the call centre operation will have been overcome. Without exception, all of your TMs should be set realistic but challenging Performance Development Plans which will align personal goals with campaign and business goals and fuel continuous improvement. • Consistency and equality is a huge driver of success in the contact centre. As an SDM, you will be responsible for a good chunk of the campaign but as a peer group, the SDMs must ensure consistency across all processes, teams, campaigns & sites. The SDMs will conduct regular consistency clinics to challenge all aspects of the campaign and these will feed into the Performance Management meetings with the TMs. • As an SDM, you will need to have a close relationship with numbers and you will regularly analyse the performance of key metrics within the campaign. You will work with the TMs to manage outliers and recognise trends, before coming together as a peer group to rationalise & communicate your findings.
