How important is Business Administration? Very! Why? Because business administrators handle the day-to-day tasks in the office, which are a key part of what makes every business run smoothly. Businesses rely heavily on top quality administration to be successful in their industry.

Administration is used in every business and therefore you could find yourself working as a business administrator in one of a wide variety of settings. This could include hospitals, restaurants, schools, accountants and solicitors.

The skills you learn are also transferable from one industry to the other. These skills include accuracy, time keeping, organisation, professionalism, responsibility and attention to detail.

Case Study

Elspeth Yates - HR Assistant at Lancashire Constabulary

I first started my Business Administration Apprenticeship in April 2013 within the HR Department, working on the Recruitment Team. On my first day, I expected that I would just be doing the filing and the post but I was put to work straight away getting training on the beginning stages of the Special Constable process. Within 12 months, I had gained a lot of experience within recruitment by being part of different processes, from Special Constables to PCs to now running the Police Community Support Officer process myself. Doing my Apprenticeship was one of the best choices I made as I feel I have learned a lot in the 3 years I have has been a big help in starting off my career.
