- Operating the reception – Welcoming all guests in a friendly, sincere and professional manner, delivering inspirational service every time.

- Assist with the opening / closing of the business – Preparing for upcoming events and ensuring a thorough handover
- Ensure our guests events go without a hitch, checking agreed arrangements, creating welcome packs, setting up room screens and being the contact for the day for any queries
- Prepare guest invoices accurately to ensure all revenue is captured
We’re looking for someone who is approachable and friendly, has excellent communication skills and is able to work well within a team. You’ll need to work with other departments to ensure you are fully aware of all requirements and that these are delivered, but also be self-led as you will also work alone. You should have strong interpersonal and problem solving skills, and have the ability to work well under pressure in a fast paced environment.
