The best Receptionist jobs in Sydney

Looking for your next receptionist job? We’re here to help you dream big. We’re Sydney’s favourite boutique recruitment agency for reception roles. 

While the role of a receptionist can be one of the more junior administrative positions within a business, the strategic role receptionists play in being brand ambassadors and their contribution to the business should not be underestimated. 

A good receptionist will do so much more than simply answer phones and greet guests. As the face and voice of the business, receptionists are paramount when it comes to creating a positive first impression of the business, building relationships with guests, managing customer experiences and promoting the business’ accomplishments.
