Job Description

Our mission is to become the world’s number-one online shopping destination for fashion-loving 20-somethings.

ASOS is a unique, multi-platform experience that truly resonates with the people who use it, because it’s built by them. It’s a place to develop your own style and be inspired… and, of course, to shop.


When we say retail doesn’t get much more innovative than this, we mean it. From our designers and photographers to customer advisors and tech specialists, we’re entrepreneurs from start to finish.

We’re forever pushing boundaries and breaking barriers in our quest to be the no.1 online fashion destination in the world. We’re authentic, brave and creative in everything we do. We wouldn’t be where we are today without embracing those values


Customer Care makes up almost one third of ASOS’s ever expanding workforce. We’re here to love our customers in the right language, through the right channel, at the right time, 24hrs a day, 7 days a week.

We believe our customers deserve exceptional service at all times. They are at the heart of everything we do, which means that we try to get things right first time, every time. We’re 24/7, truly global and well on our way to becoming an omni-channel Contact Centre. We’re a passionate, friendly bunch and thrive in our ever-changing business.

  • We were voted number one in LinkedIn’s Top Companies to work for 2018 list
  • 95% of our customer interactions are through digital channels
  • We have over 150 teams in Customer Care, creating a lot of opportunities


Our Customer Care vision is to deliver a frictionless service proposition, whereby through locally relevant, digital first interactions, we deliver truly value-led experiences. The quality of our Customer Care and the after-care experience is core to our brand proposition. This is underpinned by our Customer Experience Principles which are fundamental to our transformational journey. Our principles guide us in what our “fashion-loving twenty-somethings” care about the most when it comes to help and support and are embedded in everything that we do.

The Customer Change function sits within Customer Care (CC) and is the conduit for all change affecting Customer Care.

The current areas of responsibility across Customer Change include:

Customer experience strategy & management Continuous improvement management & operational readiness ASOS growth change demand, PMO & operations change delivery CC strategy transformation & delivery

We review change end to end, from design through to post implementation, using a controlled impact assessment process to evaluate change with considerations to our customers, people, technology, and processes. We work hard to push the CC strategic change agenda, prioritising and delivering with our partners across the business as well as controlling and governing change which is generated elsewhere from the wider business. We have a defined process to manage all change regardless of where it originates and where needed, we provide governance and management through project professionals who track and deliver change based on the full project lifecycle.
