Job roles: Business support officer, Secretary, Administration officer, PA, Office manager
Administrators handle the day-to-day tasks in an office and make sure things run smoothly. Without them, information would be hard to find, meetings would be missed and businesses would be less productive.
Your exact duties will depend on your employer. You may be typing up board meeting documents, putting financial information together in spreadsheets, sending the daily post, negotiating with customers, managing projects or coordinating events. You need a strong sense of responsibility, accuracy and attention to detail.
Administration roles are an excellent starting point to move into management once you have more experience.
