About the Role

Meeting people and giving a warm welcome is a key part of the role. Additionally, the role comprises some practical preparation of rooms and being on call to attend to any issues arising whilst guests are on site. A further requirement is to take on some responsibility for the general maintenance of the site. Depending on strengths and experience, there will be involvement in other tasks/responsibilities. Working as part of a team is essential, with a willingness to be flexible as calendar bookings can change day by day, and occasionally, all hands on deck are necessary!

Working Hours

The position requires flexibility but also offers flexibility. There is a requirement for 24 hours cover 4 days a week, which includes alternate weekends. The vast majority of the time very little needs doing before 9am or after 5pm, other than locking up/unlocking the site or attending to any needs that may arise. Whilst on weekend cover, the expectation would be to welcome guests on a Friday evening and Saturday morning as necessary, but then only attending to any occasional needs.
