Administrators help businesses run smoothly and without their organisational skills, many businesses would fail. They handle day to day tasks which can be routine or complex and ensure that meetings are not missed, telephone calls are answered, customers are dealt with appropriately. Businesses rely heavily on administrators to ensure they remain current and ahead of their competitors.

One of the great things about being an administrator is the flexibility of working in many different environments. These could include: solicitors, recruiting and resourcing, financial departments, schools, accountants, and distribution.

The skills you learn are also transferable which means you can work in any industry. These skills include organisation, team work, professionalism, responsibility and attention to detail.

Case Study

Alex Murphy at Lancashire Constabulary

My job role at Lancashire Constabulary involves working in the Maintenance Unit dealing with damaged police cars, arranging for them to be repaired and dealing with the insurance claims. I have completed my Level 2 Business and Administration and am currently working towards my Level 3 Business Administrator qualification. I enjoy learning on the job as everything I learn through my Apprenticeship, I can put into practice in my job role. I think an Apprenticeship is a better way of learning as it has helped me grow in confidence and has given me the knowledge to use different systems which I have implemented in my job role.
