Do you pride yourself on your ability to deliver outstanding customer service? We may have the perfect job for you.
We have a part time opportunity for a Receptionist to join our Guest Services team in our Southampton office. This is a Part time role to work 1pm - 6pm Monday to Friday. As Receptionist you will create a positive first impression to clients and visitors and promote a friendly and approachable environment. You will be the first point of contact for all our clients and visitors to our firm. This is very important to us.
What will you be doing?
This job will see you working as part of the Reception team in Southampton as well as part of our wider national Guest Services team. You'll be guided by the Guest Services Supervisor who is also based in Southampton. Day to day you will be booking and coordinating meeting rooms, accepting and organising couriers, maintaining the visitor's log, ensure accordance with the firm's ISO procedures, take responsibility for ensuring all in-house functions run smoothly and generally supporting the wider office.

So, what are we looking for?
This is a key client facing role that requires expert communication skills, patience, attentiveness, a calming presence and the ability to thinking on your feet. It goes without saying that we would like someone who has previous experience of delivering first-class customer service. This roles gives you the opportunity to interact with people across the office, and it can get very busy so we need you to be able to juggle multiple tasks and organise your workload appropriately. It would be fantastic if someone could bring experience of working within a corporate reception of a large professional services firm (or a 5 star hotel) but attitude, commitment and a client-focussed approach is far more important to us.
You'll work as part of a job share and also work very closely with the Guest Services Supervisor. As a firm we're very hot on technology and constantly look to upgrade systems so you'll need excellent IT skills. Again the ability to communicate articulately at all levels, whilst being personal, flexible and pro-active. We are also looking for a natural 'forward planner', who is highly organised and pays attention to detail.
What makes it great to work here?
Our Southampton office is currently under-going a complete refurbishment transforming into a modern and refreshing space to work. As you will have no doubt seen from our website we are a large forward thinking law firm with even bigger plans for the future. We invest a lot in our people - it's our people and culture that make it a great place to work.
