We require a Full and Part time Receptionist. The working hours will be fixed and are yet to be confirmed. In addition to contracted hours all receptionists are expected to work overtime to cover holiday or sick leave. Flexibility of working hours is essential. This could mean that you are sometimes needed to cover other shifts that start at 8.00 am or shifts that end at 8.00 pm. You may be asked to work a shift on your day off. You may also be asked to work your hours earlier or later in the day or extend your shift to cover absences. Staff are required to undertake training at more than one branch so that they are able to provide cover when needed.
Staff are entitled to 5 weeks’ holiday pro rata. In addition staff are entitled to bank holiday leave pro rata. Leave is calculated in days.
