Gerry Reardon - Winner

Department for Work and Pensions |

Gerry Reardon is truly inspirational in his dedication to customer service and making sure things are put right for the customer with impartiality. Gerry leads the team specialising in  Universal Credit (UC) complaints/official correspondence. He has personally dealt with some very complex cases. He provides a unique service to customers, he takes the time to  explore the issues and contacts the customer to seek confirmation of their complaint and provide reassurance. Invariably these cases need an urgent resolution, usually within 24  hours, Gerry works at real pace to make things happen. He liaises with operational colleagues to gain a full insight into the history of a case and works collaboratively to put things right. He always goes the extra mile; if he uncovers further, or systemic, issues he proactively ensures these are fully addressed. His team follow his example and he is an exceptional role model and ambassador for DWP.
