About Clarion Gaming

Clarion Gaming is the market-leading media and events business for the B2B gambling market. It is home to ICE, the biggest and most well-known show, attracting over 40,000 global attendees, as well as a portfolio of media products including ICE365 and iGamingBusiness, both market-leading portals for the gaming community. Last but certainly not least, we are home to the vibrant iGB event series.

At Clarion Gaming, we strive to be the best through innovation, embracing learning and development, celebrating mistakes and most of all putting our customers first. Our Customer Success team ensures our customers get the best out of us and our products.

The Opportunity

We are looking for a highly motivated Customer Success lead to join the Clarion Gaming team in our London office. The successful candidate will be joining as we look to evolve this department and progress in how the team drives improvements across our live events. This is a rare opportunity for a proactive individual to make their mark and show the full impact a Customer Success team can have. This role will give someone obsessed with positive customer experiences and outcomes an opportunity to realise their full potential.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Overall responsibility for the Customer Success team across the Clarion Gaming division.
  • Fostering consistency across the customer journey in order to create a more seamless customer experience, including designing a proactive, outbound customer success programme.
  • Driving consistency in internal processes and schedules across the portfolio so that we are better prepared to meet customer needs.
  • Developing longer-term strategies, collaborating with Sales, Operations, Content and Marketing functions, to improve pre-show, onsite and post-show customer interactions and escalations.
  • Driving continuous improvement in NPS and other customer satisfaction metrics (including response times, customer retention rates etc.).
  • Interviewing top customers on all shows to understand their ‘post sale’ experience in order to identify where to focus improvements.
  • Owning our relationship with Freshdesk – ensuring our ticketing, tagging and reporting architecture is appropriate for our needs, as well as developing the team’s fluency on the platform by arranging training and educational days via their academy programme.
  • Nurturing and encouraging the development of your direct reports, including creating individual and team KPIs/objectives and putting in place an incentive programme to drive customer interaction and success.
  • Reporting and analysis – delivering weekly/monthly/annual product reports to management detailing key metrics (customer satisfaction/response times) and insights.
  • Devising and implementing a Customer Success brand language in collaboration with our Brand Director and helping to promote a culture of Customer Success throughout the business.


Knowledge, Skills & Behaviours:

  • Prior experience in managing a Customer Success team in a B2B environment.
  • Familiarity with using Freshdesk is desirable but not essential; we welcome candidates who have experience with similar platforms.
  • Proven ability to work with customer data and platforms to drive strategic planning and decisions that improve customer experience.
  • Demonstrated ability to manage multiple projects and individuals in a fast-paced and changing environment, with a flexible and adaptable approach.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to communicate effectively with a range of stakeholders.
  • A passion for self-development and a commitment to ongoing learning and improvement.
  • The role will mainly be hybrid with onsite work required at live events.
