An office administrator ensures that all the administrative elements of an office are running smoothly. Some potential areas an office administrator may be responsible for are budgets, accommodation and property facilities and records, and the management of human resources.
Office administrators perform many varied tasks to ensure a business or organization is operating at its peak ability. Their tasks may include supervising and coordinating staff, interviewing job applicants, conducting orientations for new employees, completing staff assessments or job descriptions, preparing estimates of expenditures, reviewing correspondence, providing secretarial or executive services for committees, and taking care of payroll. Office administrators must be skilled at supervising others, and they must have excellent organizational skills.
