Functieomschrijving & werkzaamheden
We believe that our Receptionists make the difference. To make sure all our visitors feel at home we are looking for someone who is able to transmit energy to our members. A sparkling, enthusiastic, pro-active person who feels connected with Spaces and is willing to go the extra mile.
We are looking for several receptionists for 20 to 40 hours a week (2 – 4 days).
A typical day at Spaces:
At 7:45 am, you check-in at your location to make sure that everything’s set for the opening at 8:00 am. The cleaning team has already turned off the alarm and switched on most lights, so you make it your responsibility to order the first cappuccino of the day at the bar. In the meantime, you make your round through the business club to make sure all lights are turned on and the place looks tidy. Slowly, the first members and tenants start to arrive and one of them asks you for the changed WiFi-code. Afterwards, while digging through your emails, a guest walks in and says she’s coming to provide a training in one of the meeting rooms. You check the meeting room agenda and notice that almost all of the meeting rooms will be occupied today.
You take her to the right meeting room, but you find out that our catering partner forgot to put coffee in the room and make sure that this is still done. A bit later, a tenant asks you if his mail has already arrived; he’s expecting a really important letter. Later that morning, the mail comes in and you put it in the corresponding mailboxes – and send an email to the tenant that came by earlier, saying that his mail arrived and that it’s waiting for him in his mailbox. After a hectic morning, it’s time for lunch.
You grab a homemade soup and a healthy salad together with your favourite colleagues in the restaurant. After lunch, you sit down with the Community Manager to discuss the organisation of next week’s summer event. However, he mentions that one of the members just had a baby. You take it upon yourself to organise an act of kindness from Spaces, and to congratulate the parents of the new-born. Once you’re done with ordering, a guest pops by to sign up for a membership. Because your Sales colleague isn’t available right now, you help the guest with the online registration. Once the registration is done, you immediately hook her up with a badge (and immediately arrange one for the new employee on the 4th floor who just emailed you as well).
At 6:00 pm, it’s time to gently ask the large group in meeting room 3 to wrap it up. Maybe they would like to join us for drinks at our weekly Friday drinks, or you direct them to that nice nearby restaurant you know so that they can grab a bite. Once the last people have left the building, and everything’s left behind nice and tidy, you head home to enjoy your evening.
You love to work in a dynamic company, have experience in providing the best possible service with a smile, have a talent for multitasking, have at least three years work experience in hospitality, serviced office or event industry with a link to media, fashion or design.

- able to handle Gmail and MS Office;
