The Job


What is a Receptionist?

Receptionists are often the first voice and face a person
sees when interacting with a company. Receptionists answer phones, receive visitors, provide information and perform clerical duties.

Why Companies Need Receptionists

The first impression a company makes is important, and often that first impression comes from a Receptionist. Further, Receptionists often provide the company with some security by keeping logs of who comes in and out of the office and/or escorting visitors to their destination.

What do Receptionists do?

Receptionists maintain the “face” of a business. This often includes:

  • Answering telephone calls: Receptionists must have good phone etiquette and the ability to take messages and forward calls to their intended recipients.

  • Maintaining calendars: A Receptionist schedules and confirms appointments, and they ensure that all visitors have appointments.

  • Greet, check in and escort or direct visitors to their destinations: A Receptionist needs a friendly-but-firm demeanor when greeting and checking in visitors. All visitors must have a clear reason that they are in the office, and some visitors may require directions or assistance finding their destinations.

  • Inform employees of visitor arrivals or cancellations: When a visitor arrives for or cancels their appointment, a Receptionist informs the affected employee(s).

  • Copy, file and maintain records: Receptionists manage many different kinds of files. These may include visitor logs, phone logs, payments and receipts or CRM databases (customer relationship management databases).

  • Handle correspondence: Receptionists receive mail and packages on behalf of the company and distribute these items to their intended recipients.

  • Hear and resolve complaints: It is often up to the Receptionist to listen to complaints and provide appropriate customer service.

In addition to these highlights there may be other tasks/actions that you will be asked to take part in or complete that coincide with accomplishing the organizations objectives that are broader than the direct responsibilities of this role
