The client’s experience of Simpson Travel is at the heart of everything we do and really listening to their feedback at every stage of their contact with us is vital to our on-going success.  The Customer Service Manager, in conjunction with the Customer Service Executive, will play a key role in responding to customer comments received by telephone, email and via our customer service questionnaires, and work with our overseas teams to put matters right for the future.
