We are now recruiting current students to undertake the role of Reception Service Assistant, to start in the Autumn term 2019.

As a Reception and Administration Service Assistant, your duties will include, but are not limited to: providing a fantastic customer experience for all SUSU customers as their first point of contact on site, over the phone and via email, handling cash and card payments for SUSU box office tickets, and organising and maintaining the key list and making sure the handovers are correct. You will also answer customer queries in a positive and welcoming manner, and complete administrative tasks as required for the Business Services Team, and tidying the area you work in.
