  • be cool tempered and able to handle rejection.
  • be able to capture accurately the relevant details from the responses you receive

You must represent Receptional abiding by our brand values at all times and ensure all contact with prospects is carried out in a professional manor, ensuring the prospects have a positive experience.

Good time management skills and the ability to conduct your work independently.

Gain a basic understanding of who Receptional are, and what our service offerings mean, so that you can comfortably explain if asked during calls.
