Helping you find a career in the Admin industry

Administration covers a large area, and is vital to the smooth running of almost every business or organisation – meaning those with the diligence and attention to detail required in administrative positions are always in high demand. Jobs within the sector are all about the attention to detail and planning that allow everything within a business or organisation to run smoothly.

Day-to-day tasks for those working in administration could include managing the diary of a senior director, coordinating the office supply chain, assisting with HR tasks, organising paperwork, being involved with payroll, acting as the main point of contact on an office switchboard, or scheduling important meetings – amongst many other things.

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 jobs need to be hyper-organised and incredibly reliable, with one ear to the ground so they know what’s going on at all times.

Types of jobs within administration

There are a few different roles within administration, from data entry clerks to those managing teams of administrators. You might assist with administration tasks, act as the first point of contact for those visiting the business as a receptionist, or administer staff contracts – amongst a huge variety of other things.

Here are some positions that are often available within the admin field:

Administrative assistant
Office clerk
Receptionist
Administrative Support Manager
Contract administrator
Data entry clerk
Virtual assistant


Skills & interests required for a career in Admin
The most important skills for those working in the administration and secretarial fields are organisation and attention to detail. You’ll also need to be hardworking, with the drive to get things done quickly and a mature and capable attitude towards work.
- Attention to detail
- Communication
- Microsoft Excel
- Microsoft Powerpoint
- Microsoft Word
- Planning
- Problem Solving
- Teamwork
Graduate schemes & other typical career progression routes in Admin
One particular way to progress within this industry is to become a specialist in a particular area, allowing you to move into a specific administration role within this area. Examples include training to become a legal or medical administrator, both of which require specific knowledge and will elevate the opportunities you’re qualified for.

Similarly, if you have language skills you may be in a good position to work for a company that works bilingually or across more than one country.

There is always the chance to upskill in this industry, with new ways to work and new programs and systems to learn to ensure that you’re on top of your game. Practical skills are the way to do this, and it is likely that your organisation will be in a good position to keep you up to date with required training opportunities – after all, their success depends on your role being carried out as efficiently as possible.
Tips for getting into the field
Lots of graduates apply for roles in admin, so it’s worth knowing what employers will look for when you’re applying for roles.

There are also a large number of general, non-industry-related things that you can do to put yourself in a good position to start applying for jobs. These include:

  • Tailoring your CV for each specific role - making sure you focus on the particular skills that are being asked for

  • Taking on similar roles – for example as an admin assistant or similar, during the holidays

  • Using your contacts – university professors, those you met on work experience, people you can approach through social media or LinkedIn – they’re all potentially the stepping stone that could help you find a job
How much can graduates earn in Admin?

What qualifications do I need for a career in Admin?
Graduates with degrees in any subject can move into an administration role, although knowledge of businesses and the processes that make it successful are of huge benefit.
