Customer Service Manager Courses

What does a Customer Service Manager do?

Customer Service Managers oversee an organisation’s customer relations and after-sales service. They develop the customer service delivery standards for all areas of the organisation, then implement procedures, training, incentives, and reviews to ensure they are maintained.

As a Customer Service Manager you could be managing a call centre or service team, dealing with an escalated customer complaint, delivering a training session to the sales department, or reporting customer satisfaction data to the company’s executives. You’ll need excellent communication skills and high degree of empathy.


How much do Customer Service Managers earn?

In Australia, a full time Customer Service Manager generally earns $1,756 per week ($91,312 annual salary) before tax. This is a median figure for full-time employees and should be considered a guide only. As you gain more experience and technical expertise you can expect a higher salary than people who are new in the role.
