We look at what you can expect from a receptionist in Hampshire career

Now that things are finally starting to look up for the United Kingdom's economy, it's starting to look much brighter for those of us searching for work. Companies are finally starting to loosen the purse strings and hire new employees to add to their recently depleted work force, and one of the most common new recruitments tends to be in the role of receptionist.

If you're planning to start a new receptionist in Hampshire career there are a number of things that you should know in advance to make your search for work a little bit easier.

Firstly, most companies much prefer to hire receptionists with prior experience. This means that they don't need to spend quite as much time training them in. Knowledge of telephone switchboards is always an asset, as is comfortable working ability with the various spreadsheet, email and word processing programs available on the market today.

The more experience you have got, the better the wage you'll be able to negotiate, with starting rates ranging between £7.25 and £10.50 per hour depending on experience and qualifications.
