Team Leaders

TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK.

TAKING TEAMS TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Our Contact Centres are full of talented teams of people who work hard to provide our customers with an unbeatable service. And setting their direction and getting them ready to hit some tough targets is down to our Team Leaders. Taking their teams to the next level, our Team Leaders have the kind of strong leadership skills that inspire great performance. And whilst managing and motivating teams in an environment as fast-paced and lively as ours isn’t always straightforward, it’s definitely rewarding.  

Keeping spirits up and negativity down, they coach teams as they help customers understand their bills, resolve issues and sell in the upgrade option that’s right for them. Passionate and enthusiastic, they inspire teams to perform, help them make the most of their strengths and create a really great place to work. Because to get us to the top spot for service means giving our customers the very best experience, time after time. 

And when they’re not showing new joiners the ropes or looking for ways to boost their team’s performance, they’re always happy to pull on a headset and expertly deal with escalated calls and really lead by example. We’re always looking for people with the confidence, passion and enthusiasm that rubs off on others to join us and help our teams deliver a super service that can’t be matched.  

Top Team Leader Techniques

Get an insight into how our Team Leaders work their magic and find out why they find their roles so rewarding. 

At the beginning of 2015, I was managing a team who were in their probation period. At the time, they were the lowest performing team for customer loyalty in their area. So over the next three months I spent one hour a week doing side-by-side call listening with each team member. I also set them mini challenges, encouraging them to use positive language to transform the way they interacted with customers. As they were a young team, I used the fact that they were mobile savvy to get them to buy in to the benefits of EE, and this was reflected in how they spoke about the network on future calls – improving customer loyalty and helping us to hit our team targets.

I introduced a pilot scheme with my team, allowing them to take their breaks as and when they needed them as long as they did not exceed their daily amount. Sometimes it’s helpful to take some time out after a call to consider how it was handled and prepare for the next. During this time my team worked more efficiently and were more engaged, which reflected in how our customers scored us and led to an increase in customer satisfaction within a very short space of time.

Praveen on holiday.

The sky's the limit

07/02/2017 14:18

We're always proud as punch when one of our employees does good! Praveen began his career at EE in the sales team at our North Tyneside Contact Centre. It didn't take him long to become one of the top performing Sales Advisors in the region. From there, Praveen was chosen over 700+ internal applicants to join an internal fast track scheme. During the two years that followed, he got a real flavour as to the many different areas of the company - finally landing in our Marketing department, as a Marketing Analyst.

Now, as a Mobile Propositions Manager with the BT Group, he says, "Life is busy, but very good. I’m involved in a lot of interesting projects."
