Helping you find a career in administration
Administration covers a large area, encompassing roles from personal PA to Office Manager. Tasks could include managing the diary of a senior director, coordinating the office supply chain, assisting with HR tasks, organising paperwork, being the main point of contact on an office switchboard, or scheduling important meetings - amongst many other things.
Despite the variety of tasks, the ethos across the sector doesn't differ: it's about organisation, diligence, and the attention to detail that allows everything within a business or organisation to run smoothly.
There has been a shift in the way administration is seen over the past few years, from an industry that was largely about serving the needs of others to one that is at the very heart of ensuring an organisation runs smoothly. People working in administration, secretarial and PA roles need to be hyper-organised and incredibly reliable, with one ear to the ground so they know what's going on at all times. It's not a skill set that everyone can say they've got.
