RECEPTIONIST RECRUITMENT AGENCY

Trust Sydney’s finest Receptionist recruitment agency to find your dream Receptionist

You may have heard of receptionists being referred to as the ‘directors of first impressions’, and that is exactly what they are! They are the first person your clients, customers, stakeholders etc., see or speak to when interacting with your business. 

A receptionist can be key in building initial relationships with your guests and promoting your business’s accomplishments. That is why it is essential for us to find you that perfect candidate!  

We are a recruitment agency focused solely on administrative roles and receptionists are one of our most popular placements. We interview hundreds of candidates every month and see what it takes to be the best of the best. 

So don’t waste valuable time searching. Let us recruit the perfect receptionist for you. 

Out with the old, in with the EST10 way

The traditional recruitment process for a receptionist involves sifting through a mountain of resumes, conducting endless interviews, and crossing fingers, hoping to strike gold. We’re here to change that!

At EST10, we’re all about delivering a concierge-style experience in the world of administrative recruitment. Your receptionist isn’t just a gatekeeper — they’re the director of first, second and all impressions! They’re not just answering the phone, they’re defining the tone of your business by rolling out the welcome mat. That’s why, beyond the usual skills and qualifications checklist, we dive deep into their values, personalities, and dreams. With access to a wide talent pool, the best consultants, and a knack for spotting talent, we have your best interest at heart!

The EST10 recruitment process

Our approach goes beyond the surface — we dive deep into understanding both our clients and candidates. We ask the right questions (even the tough ones) to unearth the bigger picture.

Our process is simple:

  1. Call UsWe love a phone call! Reach out when you’re ready to hire or even just to understand the process and why we are so certain we can find you, your perfect EA!
  2. Visit — We’ll schedule a visit to gain an in-depth understanding of your requirements.
  3. Plan and Timelines — We’ll keep you in the loop about all the key details. And, did we mention our average timeline to fill a permanent role is 5 – 10 days?
  4. Relax — Sit back and relax while we do the heavy lifting.

Can’t wait 5-10 days for your new hire? No problem! We can have a temporary candidate with you within hours, even for eleventh-hour requests.

Learn more about our administrative employment agency process.

What happens if the Receptionist you send does not work out?

We are so confident about our receptionist recruitment process that our guarantees far exceed the industry standards.

If you are not completely delighted with your permanent receptionist hire within their first three months, we’ll replace the role at no charge. 

And if you’re even slightly unhappy with your temp placement within their first eight hours, again, we’ll replace the role at no cost. That’s no cost for the first temp placement and no cost for the replacement temporary’s first day. (That is double the industry standard period.)

In short, we are not happy with the placement unless you’re happy about it too.

What other role titles do Receptionists have?

The role of a receptionist can encompass broader administrative tasks.  Where a receptionist used to focus on answering calls and greeting visitors, the role can now encompass administrative or team support.

What personal qualities should I look for in a Receptionist?

You will rely on your receptionist as the face of your business. They will be the first person your customers, clients and employees see when visiting the office. 

That means qualities to look for in a receptionist include:

  • Polished personal presentation to create that good first impression 
  • Strong customer-facing skills and excellent communication skills
  • Flawless elocution and telephone manner for taking calls
  • Active listening and good EQ to understand customer communication
  • Willingness to learn and grow with the business
Why should EST10 recruit a Receptionist for me?

We know where to find the best receptionists and know what talent looks like! We also recognise potential and that’s key in a market like this! 

Finding the perfect receptionist that embodies your company culture and values is difficult, especially in a competitive environment.

So, what can you do? Trust us to find the perfect receptionist for you.

Does EST10 only recruit Reception roles in the Sydney CBD?

We recruit for businesses with locations that range from the Sydney CBD to Parramatta, North Sydney, Ryde, Sutherland Shire, Western Sydney and beyond. 

You can also call on us to help you find admin talent in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, New Zealand and London.

Do I need a Receptionist with previous experience?

If your business has high profile clients and customers, we recommend you hire an experienced receptionist.  As first impressions count, your receptionist needs to leave a good impression. Great receptionists often come from backgrounds with high customer service like retail, hospitality, or airlines.
