Is it not better to wait for the interviews? If they don't tell you, ask them EXACTLY what your duties would be, and what training would be given if you don't have the relevant experience. If you haven't done so already, make them aware you have dyspraxia, how that affects you day-to-day and the impact it has on training needs for example.

If you are getting full pay for the part time job & not rata, then take the part time job. It will give you more time for shopping & day trips!!!
Do you mean you've had the interviews or are they during the coming week?
Didn't you find your previous admin job a bit too much for you?
Take the easiest one, with the least responsibility, it would be better for you.

Sorry these interviews are coming up this week
Why don't you wait and see if you're offered any before you ponder over the choice? After all you've got to ask us what to wear first.

Got outfit planned
Just wait and see which one you're offered as you haven't had the interviews yet.

Apart from anything else, it's not really easy for us to tell what your responsibilities would be for each of the first two job titles. In one organisation, someone with 'administrator' as their job title might spend their entire day entering data into spreadsheets, whereas an 'administrator' in a different organisation might have quite a lot of responsibility for, say, deciding who gets priority on a housing list.

Similarly, some 'customer service executives' might do nothing other than call centre work, whereas others might have to handle irate customers who've got complaints about goods or services.

So, without seeing the full job descriptions, it's hard for us to know which jobs might be best for you.

Even the 'dental receptionist' role isn't one that's necessarily clear cut. In a big practice, the receptionist might simply take bookings and welcome patients, while hardly ever needing to set foot inside an actual dental surgery. In a one-man (or one-woman) practice though, a 'dental receptionist' might spend much of their time working directly alongside the dentist.

If you were lucky enough to be offered all three roles, go for the one where (based upon what you learn at the interviews) you think that you'll feel the most confident and relaxed in your work.

Here's the customer service duties.

A mixture between networking, front of house duties and supporting the office with any queries from the tenants of the workspaces

Dental receptionist is just taking calls, cash handling, making appointments.

Administrator is more logging data.
You've mentioned before that you thought you'd like receptionist work. The administrator/logging data doesn't sound as if it'd suit you, bearing in mind your previous spells in offices.
From the little we know about you, I think that the dental receptionist role might be the best one for you.

Your dyspraxia might make the customer service job a bit tricky if you'd be required to prioritise one task over another. (NB: I'm definitely NOT saying that it's totally unsuitable for you; I simply think that it might not be the best of the three roles for you).

However you're clearly bright and articulate, so you could be bored out of your skull by spending most of your day data logging in the administrator role. (Once again, I'm MOT saying that it's completely unsuitable for you though).

In the dental receptionist role, there would be sufficient routine to prevent your dyspraxia causing you too many problems while, at the same time, offering another variety to prevent you being bored rigid.

The dental receptionist is no longer available
If, as if seems, reception work may be best for you...then concentrate on looking for that type of job. You'll be more enthusiastic, have more chance to get the job...and you'll increase your confidence. Something you are lacking...loosing jobs or being turned down doesn't help.

Interview for administrator went really well. It has bit of receptionist work in it but some I will need to be trained on.
customer service

at the dentist for a cracked tooth last week - and was struck at how little she did beside answer the phone - and ask for money
" dont turn up for dentures unless you have £1,000 " was one which struck me how monetised teeth drilling was
