Our Role

Our contracts team are responsible for ensuring all Major Connection Contracts are produced to a high standard, and in line with our Guaranteed Standards. As part of this team, you’ll manage your own portfolio of Connections customers, providing an effective service to each, managing their expectations and assisting them with any queries they may have.
