As a leading corporate interiors and architecture firm in the Pacific Northwest, JPC Architects is committed to excellent client service and superior design. Our architects, interior designers, and technical staff collaborate seamlessly to create environments that are inspiring, sustainable and change lives.
We are looking for a Part-time Front Desk Receptionist (AM or PM) who is passionate about making sure everyone who comes in contact with JPC Architects has a great experience.
Things You’d Get to Do
As the face of JPC Architects, you will be the main point of contact at our busy front desk. On a typical day, you will be greeting employees and visitors, managing multiple incoming phone calls, scheduling conference rooms, ordering supplies, and keeping our kitchen and copy rooms neat and tidy. You play a big role in helping JPC maintain a fun, engaging and collaborative work culture by helping with special events, company parties and fundraisers.
Who You Are
Our ideal candidate is a friendly, supportive, problem-solver who understands that even the smallest jobs (like emptying the dishwasher) are incredibly valuable when it comes to creating a great workplace. You continuously seek out opportunities to improve service to our employees, clients and visitors. You have a positive, approachable personality and a willingness to interact with a wide variety of people. You truly enjoy forming relationships with the people you work with and you treat everyone with respect.
You readily handle interruptions, shifting effortlessly from one task to another (or two), then returning to the original task without losing focus or becoming frustrated. Despite all of the hustle and bustle at the front desk, you are able to meet deadlines without compromising quality. You don’t mind cleaning up after people, even when they should know better.
Your Work Schedule
The morning reception hours will be Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (25 hours/week). The afternoon reception hours will be Monday through Friday from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (25 hours/week). Candidates must be flexible to work additional hours up to a full-time schedule as needed during busy times or to cover for time off.
Realistically, you must have at least 1 year of relevant work experience. People with a background in customer service (particularly in the retail, restaurant or hospitality industries) are a good fit. Experience as a receptionist in a professional office setting is ideal. Tech savvy with proficiency in MS Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook are required. Regular, consistent, reliable, on-time attendance based on this work schedule is required.
This position is eligible for an annual discretionary bonus, paid time off, parking/bus pass, on-site fitness center and 401k profit sharing plan.
