CHILD PLANNING & CUSTOMER SERVICES OFFICER

Are you interested in a Child Planning & Customer Services Officer position at a leading international childcare organisation in The Hague?

The role is a front-line position involving direct customer contact - written and verbal– whilst also encompassing the administrative aspects of the child placement processes such as child placement planning, contract issuing, and data management & reporting.

Furthermore, the internationally transient lifestyles of many of our parents means that the efficient child planning for our seven day care, pre-school, out of school care and holiday camps locations (which can operate significant waiting lists) is an interesting year-round puzzle.

The overall purpose of this role is to ensure high occupancy rates through effective planning and a positive first impression that ensures a high level of customer satisfaction.

Qualifications & Experience:

  • Good general level of education (MBO - or equivalent in experience)
  • At least 3 years’ experience in a child planning and customer services role
  • Understanding of the Dutch Childcare system
  • Experience in working with child planning software (preferably the Nanny)
  • Knowledge and understanding of the expat lifestyle
  • Understanding of the role of customer service and customer relations in a business context
  • Good understanding of Microsoft Office – Excel, Word, PowerPoint
  • Ability and openness to grasp and master new IT systems
  • Understanding and practical experience of the financial administration relating to client invoicing and account payables;
  • Outstanding analytical skills with an ability to find proactive solutions and initiate new developments in line with business objectives;
