Check out this guide to receptionist in Kent careers

If you have ever given much serious thought to looking at receptionist in Kent careers then you no doubt understand many of the basic requirements necessary to be a success in the job. You'll need to be comfortable using a wide range of computer software to write and circulate memos, track meeting and appointment times, communicate with staff and external clients, research various topics online, find phone and manage phone number databases and create and edit various spreadsheets and databases.

These are all the things that most people are familiar with, but the difference between being a great receptionist and a great clerical officer is how you deal with people. Since you'll be spending a lot of time on the phone and acting as the first point of contact for your business, it's very important that you come across as friendly and approachable.

You'll need to be as helpful as possible to any callers, directing them to the correct department or individual with the minimum fuss and maximum efficiency. Even when you're not feeling like dealing with the public on certain days, you need to remember that as a receptionist it's your job to put on a friendly face regardless of how you feel.

This is something that many people are unable to manage, and it's something every prospective receptionist needs to understand. In return, you can expect to earn between £7.50 and £9.80 per hour as a starting wage, and with three or more years experience under your belt you should be able to negotiate a better deal of up to £13.80 starting wage. This figure will increase over time as you prove yourself to be capable of the position.

We recommend that you take a look at Kent Science Park, Barham Business Park, Stour Valley Business Park and Tomas Seth Business Park in order to give yourself the best possible chance of finding a receptionist position that's right for you.
