As our receptionist you will be at the heart of our visitor experience, wholly responsible for meeting and greeting all visitors, providing a professional and friendly welcome, tailoring your service approach to each individual you meet. Alongside this, you will effortlessly manage and maintain our reception areas and all meeting rooms, and be the point of contact for day-to-day post, courier and supplier management.

It requires a bright individual of considerable talent and commitment, who has the ability to proactively juggle multiple tasks while working in a busy, fast paced environment.

In addition, there are excellent benefits which include private health cover and a life assurance and benefits platform.

Perrett Laver believes that excellence will be achieved through recognising the value of every individual. A broad range of perspectives, backgrounds and opinions amongst our global community of colleagues is crucial in maintaining our culture of openness, intellectual curiosity, and creativity. We take an active role in supporting under-represented communities and groups in becoming better and more fairly represented in the leadership of all organisations. We also know that diverse and inclusive teams have a positive impact on our ability to identify, engage and secure candidates from these groups.

Our commitment to inclusion across race, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, identity, and experience drives us every day – for clients, for candidate identification and in the recruitment, development and retention of colleagues. 

To ensure inclusion on the basis of age, disability, ethnic or national origin, family circumstance, gender, gender identity, marital status, nationality, political or religious beliefs, race, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation, we would like to specifically invite applications from under-represented groups.
