Receptionists (Casual basis only)
Location: UCB Broadcast Centre, Hanchurch Lane, Hanchurch , Stoke-on-Trent , ST4 8RY

UCB’s Broadcast Centre has a lively and busy ‘front-of-house’ Reception desk. Our receptionist takes calls, answers queries, greets guests and assists with other administrative jobs, such as looking after the post and responding to listener’s emails and texts. It’s a busy and rewarding role and we’re looking to build up a bank of casual receptionists, who can be called on at short notice, to cover holiday or sickness cover. The ideal candidate will have a flexible schedule and will be able to work at very short notice. If you’re a natural ‘people person’ and can easily multi-task in a busy environment, this could be the ideal flexible role for you. If selected, we will add you to our roster of staff who can be called on, when needed.

If you are interested in joining our bank of casuals, please complete the application form and return it to the address on the front.

The ideal volunteers will be people who are happy to offer their time at occasional weekend events (usually within reasonable travelling distance of their home), have access to a car and enjoy the challenge of chatting to new people.  As you’ll be setting up a UCB stand you will need to be reasonably fit and active.
