Purpose of role

We’re Entain. Our vision is to be the world leader in sports betting and gaming entertainment by creating the most exciting and trusted experience for our customers, revolutionising the gambling space as we go. We're home to a global family of more than 25 well-known brands, and with a focus on sustainability and growth, we will transform our sector for our players, for ourselves and for the good of entertainment.

The Escalations team manages Entain's final stage Complaints, Disputes and Executive Escalations for all UK customers for some of the best loved brands in the industry. We want to treat customers fairly and provide the best service to support brand growth and trust; that's the team's priority.

We receive complaints from all over the business, and external sources, some of which could carry a financial or reputational implication for the business. How we manage these cases can affect that outcome, so we work together as a team to provide the best customer journey and solution; to fit the needs of the customer and the business.

You'll work closely with key stakeholders across the business, to make sure we deliver fair customer outcomes, and at the same time making sure we meet with our regulatory guidelines and expectations. A key part of this will be to look at the root cause of the complaint and feedback to the business, to allow for continuous Improvement; something key to Entains' ethics and strategy.
