What makes a receptionist a Hero?
First impressions: In many organisations the receptionist is the first point of contact for a customer or client. So a front of house receptionist needs to exude the right qualities of professionalism, warmth and organisation. We would also mention that a professional appearance matters, but as you have experience working as a receptionist, you’ll already know that.
Hit the ground running: It’s relatively easy for a full time and permanent receptionist. They know the workings of their business inside out so fielding calls, visitors and enquiries to the right place is reasonably easy. Naturally, that’s far more of a challenge for a temporary receptionist unfamiliar with the employer, but being able to get up to speed quickly is what makes you a Staff Hero.
Multi-tasking like an octopus: You’re not fazed by impatiently blinking phone dashboards. You can juggle data entry duties, visitor inductions and call screening as though you have an extra pair of hands. And you remain calm and unflustered whatever comes your way.

Receptionist jobs in London – the Q&A
Can I choose my hours?
Yes. As you might expect, the majority of our receptionist opportunities in London fall within standard office hours – so if you have 9-5 availability you may be more likely to get more shifts, but you should be able to find some opportunities whatever your availability.
What companies will I be working with?
If there’s a receptionist required, you could be filling the role. That means you could be gaining experience across the broadest possible pool of businesses, from law firms to investment management companies, retail head offices to publishers.
Will temporary stay temporary?
Probably, but not necessarily – if that’s what you’re looking for. The beauty of Staff Heroes is that we create a marketplace for experienced Heroes who can’t (or don’t want to) work a conventional working week. Our staff want weekends or evenings or early shifts or lates – or perhaps they just want a few hours now and then, rather than anything regular. We give them that opportunity. That’s not to say our receptionist Heroes don’t get invited back for further shifts (because often they do) and some jobs do evolve into something more permanent, but full time isn’t our mission or our expectation.

"Recruiting temp staff in the hospitality industry is a massive headache for everyone, yet nothing has been done about it from a technology standpoint. Temp Staff turnover is significant creating high recruitment costs and this area is screaming for innovation. Staff Heroes have got it spot on and are on to something which is going to be big”Olly Etridge - First Restaurant Group
"The admin and wasted time from recruiting and managing temp staff is a big problem for all pubs and restaurants. Having an agency in the middle is not ideal as it causes friction and delays... and obviously there are costs involved. If Staff Heroes can provide temp staff on demand and automate the supply and management end to end then they are going to be massively successful”Bruce Newman - SA Brain and Company Ltd
"Many hospitality businesses are still turning to traditional channels such as job boards for temp staffing. This is only one step in the end to end temporary staffing solution and if Staff Heroes can automate from sourcing to payroll this will save everyone a huge amount of time, leaving us to get on with our jobs. A huge improvement for temp staffing!”Alex Davenport Jones - The Porch House
