Part Time Telephonist/Receptionist (Fixed term – 12 months)

Monday-Friday 3pm – 8pm (25 hrs per week)

Abington based, £7.99 per hour

Why not join our dedicated and professional team committed to offering service excellence across our 3 practices?  As the first point of contact for clients (new and existing) you will have a friendly and outgoing manner, first class communication skills and a love of animals in every shape and size!  This role is challenging – both in terms of pace, and the range of knowledge required, and the ability to stay calm under pressure will be key to success.  Attention to detail is also important as complex processes/issues will often need to be worked through to ensure procedures are followed correctly and clients remain well informed and happy. Resilience is a must, as occasionally things may not go to plan!  Our friendly team of 15+ staff will offer support and training to the successful candidate, but individuals should also be confident to take responsibility for their own learning and development.

In return we can offer you an excellent salary, plus benefits including pension scheme, staff discount (after probation) and opportunities for progression.  This is a 12-month, fixed-term contract to cover maternity leave. Hours of work will be 25 per week,3.00pm – 8.00pm Monday – Friday, plus weekend on call duty and Bank Holidays on a rota basis. There will also be the possibility of overtime during peak holidays.

We are particularly interested in applicants who have previous veterinary telephony/reception experience, but any candidates who have a strong customer facing/reception background and can demonstrate the other skills and qualities required for this role will be considered.

Please send your CV and a covering letter outlining your interest and why you think you would be suitable for this position to kirsten.beckwith@abingtonvets.co.uk
