Receptionist (full time) – Fixed term for 6 months
Monday – Friday (40 hrs per week), plus weekends & bank holidays on a rota basis
Abington/Moulton 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.  The hours of work will total 40 per week – each day working an 8 hours shift between the hours of 8.00am and 8.00pm, plus bank holidays on a rota basis.

We are particularly interested in applicants who have previous veterinary 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.
