You will analyse performance data to identify improved ways of working using a right first time approach. You will have an understanding of the importance of collating contact details and knowledge of other street and environmental services to ensure that services are joined up and work collaboratively across the borough.

As a valued team member you will make recommendations for continuous improvement demonstrating the ability to incorporate customer requirements, and develop your professionalism together with the services that you deliver.

You will also respond to service queries, complaints, Members Enquiries and responses to FOI requests in line with agreed standards and use these to inform service improvements.
