About You

You are an experienced receptionist or front of house supervisor and perform best in a fast-paced environment. Having established yourself as an empathetic but results driven team player, you are now looking for an environment that allows you to perform at your absolute best. You have got bags of energy and a keen interest to continue to grow your career in supporting and enabling others. Your colleagues describe you as dependable, savvy, self-aware and efficient. You have a can-do attitude and a thirst for learning.

You are proactive and see what needs to be done. You know what your team has to do everyday, what must be achieved and the deadlines that need to be met

Every moment of the day is utilised and you apply superb organisational skills to handle this effectively. You adapt tech skills to create and manage time-saving solutions

You are driven, self-aware and self-disciplined; you take responsibility for your own behaviour and get your energy from within, rather than relying on others. You strive to succeed and constantly improve
