Chigwell will provide a 24 hour a day, seven days a week call centre function for Karibu customers, offering flexible appointments to ensure a tailored service to meet each residents requirements within a diverse community.

Dean Floyd Chigwell London Managing Director says. “Through extensive negotiations with Karibu Homes we tailored our service proposal to put in place a core ring-fenced workforce so that we could provide continuity for the residents, supported by local and regional directly employed operatives. We are delighted that for the first month of operations Chigwell have delivered improvements in customer satisfaction, appointments made and first time fixes”.
