Meet your operations colleaguesWe spoke to some of our people to ask them why they love working at A2Dominion and what makes them stay.
Cardox, Contact Centre Team Manager, Customer Experience
Why did you come to A2Dominion?
I came from retail but wanted to take the next step in customer service.
The contact centre has a huge, variety of people from different backgrounds coming together to assist customers. And it's such a good feeling trying to help customers, however we can, when working alongside each other as a team.
It's an amazing feeling to know you're actively helping somebody else's life get better.
What made you stay with A2Dominion?
I remember being extremely nervous on my first couple of phone calls because I had customers calling about service charges which was new to me. I stayed because I had a manager who understood my nerves and helped educate me. People who work in housing say it's something that's related to you: everybody lives in a house, in some way.
The knowledge I gained here has been amazing. I've been through so many transitions and getting promotions in a short time. And I've seen other people who have passion go far in the business as well.
And every day we're always striving to help improve customer journeys. If things aren't working well, there’s belief to carry out feedback and ultimately change things quickly. It’s a company that actively looks to self-improve itself, wherever possible. Everything has been for the sake of the customers.
Gayatri, Building Safety Manager, Property Services
What is the best part of your job?
The thing that stands out to me most is how much I'm learning from different people and I’ve just embraced it.
I’m in a new role so I am part of a group of people who are shaping the future of this industry. It's just amazing. We meet people who are real leaders and have a passion for what we do. It's not just a job. We're making everyone feel safer in their homes.
I think we're influencing what happens next and creating a positive legacy for future generations. For me that's the best part of the job.
How do you feel supported at A2Dominion?
I think A2Dominion is one of the most supportive environments I've been in. We have an open culture so I've never felt I couldn't speak.
We encourage inclusivity, and that makes me feel I'm part of something bigger. We share information and network and I’m listened to.
Being empowered and encouraged makes a huge difference in how I feel, and we have amazing people at every level.
What opportunities have you been given to learn and grow?
Oh, so many courses: especially industry-recognised ones. I'm currently doing a level six diploma in building safety which has just been developed and I'm one of the first people on it.
I feel taken care of and it's just brilliant!
