    Probabil ca cei care lucreaza la receptie la tine sunt majoritate fete si care arata bine, acestea fiind 2 avantaje esentiale pentru a fi angajat pe un post de receptioner. La baieti e mai greu, trebuie sa faci cursuri, trebuie sa te faci remarcat. E adevarat ca poti sa te muti de la housekeeping la receptie, dar asta poate sa ia timp si multi nu reusesc. Eu am terminat o facultate destul de buna in afara uk, dar cum eram restrictionat sa lucrez doar in customer services datorita nvq-ului care il fac, am ales sa lucrez in hotel pe o pozitie de receptioner care in mod normal, nu cere mai mult de o diploma de liceu si experienta in domeniu.
    Job marketul mi-a demonstrat ca daca n-ai un curs, o experienta in spate care sa te sprijine in domeniul in care aplici, ai putine sanse sa te cheme la un interviu, pentru ca cei de la HR vor sa gaseasca exact de ce au nevoie, folosind cat mai putin training posibil...

    Buna tuturor!
    Ady, tu garantezi pentru reception academy ca sunt seriosi? intreb pentru ca vreau si eu sa ma inscriu la ei si sunt curioasa daca te-ar ajuta si cu actele pentru ca fiind de 3 luni aici mi-e foarte greu sa le obtin. Daca m-as inscrie la un asfel de curs si sa-mi aplic ca student pentru yellow card ar fi ok?
    Merci

    http://bsgs.org.uk/English m-a costat in jur de 400 de lire dupa ce am negociat cu ei. Avantajul e ca te poti inscrie la ei cand vrei.

    http://www.facebook.com/receptionacademy
    daca citesti pagina lor de facebook, vei vedea ca au reviewuri bune, nu garantez pentru ei ca nu e firma mea, dar pot sa-ti spun ca mie mi-a fost de folos. Bineinteles, depinde de tine daca vei putea sa obti un job dupa ce termini cursul, ei nu-ti garanteaza un loc de munca, tot trebuie sa te lupti pentru el. Nu poti obtine yellow card daca te inscri la cursul asta de la reception academy, si nici nu te ajuta cu actele.

    Am si eu cateva intrebari, probabil s-au mai discutat dar calculatorul meu s-a stricat si acum scriu de pe telefonul unui amic,

    Am vazut ca un curs la reception academy costa 649 de lire, care dureaza 4 saptmani iar la cazare am vazut ca au ei niste moteluri cu 10 lire pe noapte (probabil stai cu mai multi in camera)daca fac acest curs la reception academy dupa cum pot sa imi gasesc un job? ce trebuie sa fac sa iau yellow card s-au pot sa lucrez ca self employed? Va multumesc si imi cer scuze pentru ca am pus intrebarile acestea care s-au mai discutat dar imi este foarte greu sa scriu de pe telefon.

    Tocmai ce am sunat la reception academy si am intrebat cum pot sa lucrez daca nu am blue card s-au yellow card si au zis ca este foarte greu sa iti gaseasca daca nu ai blue card, au zis ca si cu yellow card este greu.

    Salutare,


    Impreuna cu viitoarea sotie lucrez in Danemarca printr-o agentie de munca in housekeeping de aproape un an.
    In Octombrie anul acesta ne vom casatorii.

    Dupa nunta avem de gand sa mergem in Anglia(cred ca Londra) pentru a lucra tot in domeniul hotelier.
    Pengtru ca vom fi veniti pentru prima oara in Anglia, vom incerca sa ne inscriem la un NVQ pe profil, am prefera receptionist.
    Am citit cu atentie topicul, dar va rog sa-mi spuneti..

    1. Cate sanse credeti ca avem sa gasim de munca in housekeeping in perioada octombrie-noiembrie ?
    2. Cum ne recomandati sa facem sa ne inscriem online cu cateva luni/saptamani inainte de a ajunge la un NVQ, sau sa mergem si in acelasi timp sa ne si inscriem si sa cautam de munca(part time) in domeniu.
    3. Este posibil sa putem gasii colegii in domeniu care in schimbul unei sume mai mari sa ne poate inscrie si la NVQ anticipat si sa ne si ofere un loc de munca full time?

    Le-am trimis e-mail celor de la Recepetion Academy:

    "Dear Alin

    Thank you for contacting Reception Academy, We do not have NVQ courses that offer on the job training. As our courses are designed to lead to employment, they are practical and our students get to use a replica reception desk to carry out all Hotel procedures whilst observed by an experience trainer. 90 to 95% of our students find work in Hotels when they finish the course and this is not as a result of a name on a certificate; such as NVQ; it is as a result of Hotels working with us who accept what we do. We even have students from Universities who come to us and do the course just to get practical training from us.

    In the meantime please full details (start times, costs, payment methods as well as registration details) of all the courses that we offer at Reception Academy’s Training Hotel. Please click on the link below:

Upon completion students not only gain a firm understanding of how to use a Property Management System, they benefit from adding a valuable admission onto their CVs. This entry increases their chances of finding employment within major Hotels, anywhere in the world.

    The 4 week Hotel Receptionist Course including Opera PMS V5

    This practical 4 week entry level Hotel Receptionist course is designed for people with no experience in Hotels. Besides gaining knowledge of Front of House operations & learning to use Opera PMS, students are taught 5* brand standards used in Hotels and have access to a replica reception desk to practice their new gained skills.

    The Entry Level Management 1 & 2 courses are specifically designed for people who want to develop their supervisory skills and gain a firm understanding of Managerial responsibilities. These practical training courses cover real life scenarios faced by Hotel Managers, and will prepare students who are ready to push their careers to the next level.

    Eu m-am inscris la cel de la 7.30 in speranta ca voi gasi si un part time job dupa 12 :)
    Blue card "fizic" nu am, insa am 12 luni muncite legal ca au pair si pot face dovada ca nu mai am restrictii pe piata muncii :) Ar dura vreo 6 luni pana primesc blue cardul iar pe site ul UKBA zice ca putem aplica pentru registration certificate dupa 12 luni desi nu e neaparat nevoie, deci..
    Cu engleza cum stai? Am inteles ca e bine sa iti dai interesul la curs si sa obtii note bune la examene. Conteaza foarte mult pentru angajatori.
    Sper sa fie bine, abia astept un job si niste bani :)
    Despre salariu nu stiu, am vazut pe site uri ca undeva la 8-10lire/ora. Pentru inceput este perfect si asa :)
    Keep in touch :)
    PS Ma bucur ca mai e cineva la curs sa mai schimb 2-3 cuvinte :)

    In afara de acest curs, mai e nevoie de ceva hartii gen licenta, autorizatie, sau membru in ceva organizatie nationala obligatoriu pt a te putea angaja sau lucra ca receptioner?
    Nu ma refer la Nino, Blue/Yellow. Altceva e nevoie?

    Nustiu de reviste dar o sa ma duc la un magazin sa vad ce reviste sunt, povestea cu pisica tocmai ce am citit-o pe net, se pare ca 13 oameni au dat o petrecere si au zis ca 13 este numar cu ghinion asa ca au adus o posica neagra din lemn si au pus-o la masa sa fie al 14-lea invitat, ea servea masa cu invitati, poate stie altcineva povestea.
