The role of the receptionist is varied but typically includes meeting and greeting visitors, answering telephone calls, giving instructions and monitoring activity in and out of the building. Reception duties are important to all businesses and having a warming, helpful and competent receptionist can make the area seem a lot more welcoming and professional.
The correct receptionist will hugely depend on the culture and services of the business. Salon reception jobs look to attract people who share an interest in health and beauty, and are quite often used to promote the services of what the business is all about. In the corporate landscape a receptionist will be much more formal and have the ability to work in a busy and secure professional environment.
