Private Equity Firm
One of the world’s leading private equity firms with beautiful spacious offices in Munich is seeking a Receptionist to start as soon as possible on a permanent basis. This will be 5 days in the office because it is greeting people in person, and you can work 8am-5pm or 9am-6pm, Monday to Friday. Reporting to the highly supportive Office Manager, the reception duties are vast and varied, shared between two other front of house colleagues, you will work together to ensure guests are greeted in a friendly manner and that the office itself is well stocked and fully functional. The ideal background is in a similar role, and ideally you should really enjoy and understand the value of the Reception function in an organisation. First class service is at the heart of this role, and so either a corporate / office Reception background or hospitality / hotel industry are very suitable. Fluent German is essential, as well as English to an advanced level, as you will be using both languages in a business setting.
This is a hugely supportive and collaborative environment, with encouragement to learn more and develop your skillset. In return for hard work, they offer some of the best benefits of any private equity firm in Munich – a great place to work!
My client is a global investment firm with offices based in the heart of Munich and all across Europe, Asia and North America. They pride themselves on their values: being respectful, friendly, entrepreneurial, and they operate across a very flat structure. Of course, they have strong professional standards and high expectations! The Receptionists play a key role to ensure that the firm always gives the best first impression to all callers, visitors and global employees.
