Administrators provide administrative support to ensure businesses run smoothly. The primary purpose of their position is to take over administrative tasks to free up time so other employees can focus their effort elsewhere.

For this reason, administration positions can involve a wide range of tasks including:

  • Data entry

  • Producing reports
  • Researching information
  • Creating, formatting, editing and proofing documents
  • Administration of accounts
  • Booking relevant appointments, travel and accommodation
  • Maintaining confidentiality

Although administrative tasks can fall into the above categories, administration positions differ based on industry, the type of information they are dealing with and the level at which they operate.
