Service Coordinator Duties and Responsibilities

To ensure that their company's clients are matched and provided with the right services for them, service coordinators perform a variety of tasks. Core duties and responsibilities include:

Monitor Services First and foremost, service coordinators must be intimately familiar with the services their company (or third-party vendors) provides. This means they must regularly check what services are being provided, staying updated on which services are being introduced or discontinued.

Improve Services An ongoing part of a service coordinator's job is improving services. They accomplish this by evaluating the quality of their company's current services and identifying areas which are underperforming. Then, they propose ways to improve those areas.

Match Clients to Services In order to match clients to the appropriate services, service coordinators first evaluate their clients' needs. This may involve asking them questions and/or meeting with them in person. Based on their evaluation of their clients' needs, they will match the client with the service or services that best suit the clients' needs.

Follow-up After matching their clients with the best services for them, service coordinators follow-up with their clients at regular intervals. During those follow-ups, they assess their clients' satisfaction with the services they've been provided.

Resolve Client Issues If at any point in time, their clients' become dissatisfied with the services they've been matched with, it's the responsibility of the service coordinators to listen to and respond to clients' complaints. They then must resolve those complaints or, if they can't be resolved, match dissatisfied clients to new services better suited to their needs.
