Our reception is manned 7 days per week, and we are seeking applicants who are available to work between 3 and 5 permanent shifts per week including one day during the weekend.  Each shift is 8.5 hours long and encompasses all the standard reception duties such as answering phones, directing calls, processing mail, data entry and being the “go to” person for our service, and so much more.  You need to be someone who enjoys having your finger on the pulse of an organisation, and being aware of all of the moving parts.

Our receptionists play a crucial role in the service we provide, they are the first point of contact for our patients as the person on the end of the phone and the first person everyone sees when they walk through the front doors.
