Through tracking and reporting on issues impacting the operation, the Ops Support team acts as the voice of Customer Care to drive change and in turn improve the customer journey and customer care advisor experience!

Success is:

  • Working in the background, ensuring all issues are managed with minimal disruptions to the Operation
  • Ensuring the customer is not impacted by any issues or disruptions at any time, thinking creatively to solve issues before they become evident to our customers
  • Proactively communicating with Operations and our customers as necessary
  • Using the data to pick up trends quickly so they can be dealt with quickly before they become issues

  • Responsible for ensuring the relevant teams are connecting and working towards resolving the issue at hand and communicating out to the Operations with any progress
  • Responsible for logging and following the issue until resolution
  • Responsible for monitoring the different API feeds into the CRM tool and identifying any exceptions to the norm so they can be managed to avoid escalations

Necessary experience:

  • Experience of working with stakeholders at all levels across the business
  • Can demonstrate being a self-starter, flexible and able to adapt to changing circumstances

Desired Experience:

  • Ability to identify and articulate the impact (people, process and technology) of any changes to the operation


  • Working closely with the Technology, Logistics, Marketing, Buying & Merchandising and Delivery Solution Teams to ensure that systems are up and working, orders go out correctly and are delivered on time. Working to identify if something has gone wrong, and supporting any issue to resolution
  • Ensuring that all contacts from advisors or other internal teams are captured and routed to the correct teams and individuals to support quick, easy and positive resolution for our customers
  • Optimising the functionality available within our systems to ensure we are routing all incoming queries correctly and efficiently
  • Checking that all live feed data loads run correctly and are available to support customer query resolution and effective management of the operation
  • Making the most of opportunities to resolve queries proactively, prioritising issue resolutions where the most customers are impacted
  • Supporting the Implementation team after deployments of new functionality
  • Escalating and co-ordinating technology impacting incidents and working with operational stakeholders to roll out mitigating continuity opportunities to ensure that customer impact is minimal
  • Carrying out root cause analysis and identifying trends that are pain points for our customers at any stage of the customer journey. Working with the right department either within Customer Care or wider ASOS to resolve
