Customer Experience @ Sleeping Duck

Our award-winning Customer Experience team sits at the heart of the company. Our mission is to consistently deliver high quality, timely and memorable world-class customer experience for each and every customer.

How do we achieve that? Our team believes in transparency with our customers and helping them through the entire purchase process to ensure a smooth and seamless experience. This includes helping customers understand our products, assisting with a pre-sale enquiry, liaising with our supply chain team and delivery partners to ensure orders are on track, and assisting the customer with any post-sale support such as customising the product.

We are all about creating an unforgettable experience for our people and our customers. We empower customers by educating and having honest conversations to form genuine connections, prioritising the quality of the experience over the speed of it.

What’s the role?

The Head of CX will oversee our customer experience team of about 26 people which is made of an internal online customer support and face to face showroom team. This is a huge opportunity for a people focussed leader - someone who is empathetic, innovative and creative, to take ownership of the retail and online operations space.

The launch of our brand new showroom at our HQ in Prahran is upon us and as we grow the business, that means change, so we need someone who isn’t just keeping up, but is leading! We have the foundations, you will have the flair and we’ll provide the freedom for you to experiment and literally pave the way of our showroom customer experience and build our online support team, catapulting both to new heights.

We are looking for a conscious leader and would love you to bring your personality, truly connect, inspire and involve the CX team, bringing them along on this exciting phase of the Sleeping Duck journey.

  • Lead, support and develop a growing and ambitious team
  • Shape a multi-product sleep brand for the customer
  • Create and drive the showroom experience as we grow nationally
  • Plan for our international expansion in the coming years

If you don’t tick every box, please don’t count yourself out just yet. We’ve seen the research that women and other people in underrepresented groups tend to only apply when they tick all the boxes. We’re all about hiring the right person rather than ticking boxes – so if this role resonates with you, apply now!
