Pets and people at the heart of what we do.
About the Role:
We are looking for a Receptionist who will deliver an excellent standard of customer service by communicating sympathetically and courteously with our PDSA clients.

Working as part of a team, we sometimes require our Receptionists to cover some weekends and team members’ absences.
This role covers shift times from 4pm to 8pm, Monday to Friday.
Pet hospitals are busy places, therefore successful candidates will need to be organised, with good communication skills and an excellent telephone manner. Previous office experience, including word processing and use of a computerised records systems is an advantage but not essential.
The closing date for this vacancy may be brought... forward should we receive sufficient candidates.
The full-time equivalent for this role is 35 hours.
