Receptionist

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 a receptionist for 40 hours a week (4 days) divided over two locations in Amsterdam

FULL TIME · AMSTERDAM

A typical day at Spaces

You will check-in at your location at 07:45 to make sure everything is set for the opening at 08:00. The cleaning team has already taken the alarm off and switched on most lights. You will be the first one to order a nice cup of cappuccino at the bar. In the meantime you make your round through the business club to make sure all lights are switched on and everything looks tidy.

Slowly the first members and tenants arrive and somebody asks you for the changed Wifi code. A guest walks in while going through your emails and says she’s coming to give a training in one of the meeting rooms. You check the meeting room agenda and notice that almost all of our meeting rooms will be occupied today. You will bring the guest to the right meeting room and you see that our catering partner forgot to put coffee in the room and you make sure this is still done.

A tenant asks you if the mail has already arrived, he expects an important letter. When the mail arrives later in the morning you will divide this among all mailboxes and you send the tenant a friendly email saying that the mail has arrived. After a hectic morning it’s already lunch time and you can enjoy your fresh salad and homemade soup with your favorite colleagues in the restaurant. After lunch you are having a short meeting with the Community Manager to discuss the organization of next week’s summer event and she also mentions that a member just had a baby… if you can organize a Spaces gift. Another guest walks in and would like to sign up for a membership. Your sales colleague is not available so you assist this new member with the online registration. You can give him a badge straight afterwards and also register a new badge for a new employee in the office on the 4th floor.

18:00 time to gently ask the last group in meeting room 3 to wrap it up. Maybe they would like to join us at our weekly Friday drinks or you can direct them to a nice place in the city for dinner.
