Job Description for Ombudsman
Ombudsmen work primarily in situations in which a power struggle exists among different parties. It is common in the United Kingdom and some surrounding areas for ombudsmen to settle disputes between businesses and consumers of products; when there is a complaint against a large company, for example, an ombudsman must mend the difference in power (large corporation versus an individual with a problem or complaint) to reach a peaceful agreement between both parties. The tactics used to settle disputes are generally mild and non-aggressive, such as simple mediation sessions.
