I'm looking for the word to call a person that works in the registration counter for an audition. Their job scopes are to confirm the auditees' attendance, double check if they need special requirements from the organiser for the audition. Can anyone help me with this please?
I'm not sure what sort of audition you're going to but I worked for a casting director for commercials and films and I was that person.
My official title was "assistant" as in "casting assistant". Quite often, we'd give this job to our interns, too...
For us, there was no one "right" name for this person as it could likely be anyone within the casting company. Also remember that this person likely does much more than only check people in and make sure they have their headshots and scripts etc... for me, I also helped create the schedules, interacted with agents to book or request talent to attend casting calls, wrote press releases... my duties depended on the day of the week and whether we held a casting session that day.
If you really need to call them something, call them an "assistant". Yes, it's generic but, even for our interns, the term fits.
Perhaps the term gatekeeper is fitting.
Mitigating against the use of that term, however, is that the person of whom you speak does not necessarily control who does or does not get into the audition, as a true gatekeeper would, but rather 1) puts a checkmark next to the registrant's name when he or she shows up, and 2) determines if the registrant has any special needs prior to being auditioned.
Perhaps, then, the word screener would be more apropos, or perhaps even greeter and/or attendance taker.
Take your pick!
Someone at a counter who greets you, writes down that you have arrived and asks if you need any help sounds like a receptionist to me:
a person employed to receive and assist callers, clients, etc., as in an office.
