Corporate Receptionist Jobs

Corporate reception is a fantastic pathway for those looking for a career in administration and support. If you are starting out in the industry, a front of house receptionist job is a great way to get your foot in the door, helping finesse your telephone manner and build upon your organisational, customer service and communication skills.

As the first point of contact for external visitors, you are responsible for making a fantastic first impression, delivering outstanding customer service either in person, over the phone or by email. You will also be responsible for maintaining a spotless front desk area and overseeing general administrative tasks, including incoming and outgoing deliveries and meeting rooms.

Depending on the company and the size of the role, you may also take on additional responsibility by assisting an office manager or administration manager with tasks.

Reception Manager Jobs

Corporate receptionists looking for the next step up may look to a reception manager job, combining their extensive administrative skills with an ability to guide and lead others. A reception manager will lead from the front, ensuring that the customer service each visitor receives is consistent and of the highest calibre.

They are responsible for the overall management of junior staff, including recruitment and onboarding, appraisals, ongoing professional development and organising cover for absences, when required.

A reception manager job may also include ongoing reviews of processes and procedures and the implementation of best practice initiatives.

Client Relationship Manager Jobs

Another alternative for senior receptionists looking for a new opportunity is a client relationship manager job. This role is client-facing and often involves creating and building long-term relationships with clients and customers.

It requires many of the attributes expected of a receptionist job, including exceptional customer service, organisation and communication skills, as well as an ability to think quickly under pressure. This type of role may also require an element of problem solving and conflict resolution, calling on your administrative skills to answer customer needs.

Virtual receptionist jobs

A receptionist looking to move away from a corporate receptionist job into a more flexible working arrangement may look to a virtual receptionist job.

This role allows you to work from home, fielding phone calls and emails and ensuring they are directed to the right person. You may also take on some virtual assistant responsibilities, including scheduling meetings and booking travel arrangements.

As it is a remote position, the virtual receptionist job requires access to a quiet area and full Internet connectivity, as well as an ability to work under minimal supervision.

How much does a receptionist earn?

A receptionist is often an entry-level position so the salaries reflect as such. A receptionist salary within professional services can range from £22,000-£35,000, while in financial services, the starting salary increases slightly to £25,000. In both the creative and not-for-profit industries, the starting salary for a receptionist is £20,000, rising up to £28,000 with experience.

A senior receptionist salary ranges from £30,000-£40,000 in professional and financial services and £25,000-£35,000 in creative and not-for-profit businesses.
