Front of House Receptionist Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Front of House Receptionist?

Front of House Receptionist in Leeds:
"More than a Receptionist."
Pros: I have done reception work previously and my current job is nothing like reception work. No two days are the same and I have to be prepared to deal with whatever comes across my desk. I have varied responsibilities many of which no average receptionist could deal with. There are plenty of career opportunities.
Cons: I can not afford to keep this job that I love so much as the pay is so bad. I'm self managed, very rarely have time with my manager who knows very little about my job role. I'm a one person team and feel I have no support. I have no proper cover so I begrudge taking my entitled annual leave.
