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. 

RECEPTIONIST RECRUITMENT AGENCY

What does a Receptionist do?

Receptionists or front of house managers, as they are sometimes called, will do more for you than answering the phone and greeting guests. They are the face and voice of your brand, the first person a visitor meets. 

We think everyone needs a receptionist. Here’s why:

  • Set the tone – Make that first impression count. Your receptionist will set the tone and feel of your entrance area and the business in general. 
  • Stay on task – Only speak with the people you need to. A receptionist will answer and field enquiries ensuring your and the teams time is protected from unnecessary calls. 
  • Be organised – meeting rooms and communal areas ready. receptionists maintain meeting rooms and common areas, so they are ready for visitors at any moment. 
  • Feel prepared – deliveries, ad hoc tasks and complaints are taken care of. Your receptionist will take care of those small ad hoc tasks to keep things running smoothly in the background.

How much is your agency fee to recruit a Receptionist?

It depends on the salary offered! 

What is the recruitment process?

It all starts with a simple phone call to our lovely EST10 team. We’ll ask you what you’re after and help you identify which approach is best for you. 

Then, if you are looking for a temp ASAP, we’ll start the process right then and there. Or, if you want a long-term placement, we’ll explain our service option as outlined in the question above. 

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.
