  • Respond to customer requests and resolve issues in a professional and courteous manner.
  • Maintain clear and fluid communication with other staff members to ensure efficient service.
  • Maintain a clean and organized environment in the reception and seating area.



  • Previous experience in a similar role preferred but not mandatory.
  • Excellent hospitality and customer service skills.
  • Ability to work effectively in a dynamic and sometimes stressful environment.
  • Good verbal communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Flexibility in schedule, including evenings, weekends, and holidays.
