How To Find And Hire The Best Receptionist You’ve Ever Had

A business’s receptionist is often one of the most important people to the organisation. More often than not, they are a customer’s first contact with the business, and therefore, your receptionist is responsible for controlling first impressions and lasting client relationships. We can’t stress this enough when we say that you need to put a lot of thought into your receptionist hire.

MJD Recruitment is a leading receptionist recruitment agency, and we’re here to help you find the perfect person to represent your business and keep things running smoothly.

Administrative Assistant Vs. Receptionist: What’s The Difference?

Some people use the terms ‘administrative assistant’ and ‘receptionist’ interchangeably, but there are some key differences between the two roles.

Receptionists tend to handle more front-of-house work.

A receptionist will cover the front desk and phones for a business and need impeccable customer service skills and high-quality professional communication skills. An administrative assistant will typically work behind the scenes, doing administrative tasks in the back offices.

Receptionists don’t move around as much.

Because receptionists are responsible for greeting clients, customers, and guests, they stay close to their desk throughout the day. They will usually have a phone where calls are directed and a computer where they work on scheduling and correspondence. Administrative assistants tend to be a bit more mobile, moving around the office to complete a range of tasks.

Work hours may differ.

Administrative assistants usually work typical opening hours, but receptionists may need to work outside these hours on occasion. Because their job is so customer-focused, if there are late or out-of-hours meetings planned, receptionists may be needed in the office.

Receptionists may be required to remember certain clients.

As receptionists are the first contact many clients have with the business, they are uniquely positioned to build solid relationships with clients and customers. As a result, they may need to remember to speak to important or regular clients in a certain way or remember certain things about the clients’ business or industry.
