RECEPTIONIST / ADMINISTRATOR (PART TIME)

Do you love to meet and greet people? Are you a wedding fanatic? Are you interested in a career that focuses on creating a WOW experience? If so, we want to hear from you!

Maple Event Group is searching for a Receptionist/Administrator to work across both our venues in Hawthorn and Richmond. This is a part-time role, working 20 hours a week over Saturday and Sunday (at Leonda By The Yarra) and Mondays (at Fenix Events).

We have big plans to grow the business, so who knows where this opportunity may lead.

What exactly is required for the role?

Your goal will be to support Jess, our Admin Manager, by providing a first class welcome and accurate and timely admin support to your colleagues.  

A big warm welcome is crucial, so a great smile and a warm hello is crucial in helping create that WOW experience for our clients. In addition to this, attention to detail is essential, so if you’re a list person, that’s a great start. 

Ideally our new colleague will have experience in a similar role, with strong communication skills.

Granted we are looking for someone who feels they live our values as well. Take a peek at our video to see a little bit more about our team culture and meet some of the people you may be working with.
