Vacancy: Customer Service  Lead

eCow has a vacancy for someone to develop and lead our customer service capability.  We are a dynamic business with a unique product improving cow health and bringing benefits to research scientists, nutritionists and veterinarians worldwide.  Our team in Exeter builds and supports the product. We now need a Customer Service Lead to support and increase sales of the farmBolus. Our core product is a wireless rumen pH monitoring bolus which meets an urgent need within the dairy industry to improve feed management and dairy cow nutrition.

We need a Customer Service Lead to liaise with our customers to answer requests for information, write social media posts, newsletters and short articles.   The post is full time but we can be flexible for the right persons.  Flexible working from home is an occasional option especially when dealing with customers in other time zones.  A full training will be given in the product and you will work alongside the technical team who developed and make the product, and they will take over complicated questions.  Most of the service requests are for new users learning how to switch on a smartPhone and plug in antenna.  The post is based in our office in central Exeter with easy access to transport, shops and cafes.
