Administration Managers have many duties pertaining to the organisation, planning and operational support of a company. They maintain the effective flow of information, ensure that an organisation’s resources are managed efficiently, and provide advice to senior management on administrative issues like staff management, information services and financial plans.
Either working alone or supervising other employees, the Administration Manager oversees the day-to-day operation of the office; ordering supplies, maintaining office equipment and scheduling meetings. They are also generally responsible for handling budgets, managing cash-flow and reducing operational costs in conjunction with the accounts department.
Another common area that an Administration Manager might oversee is human resources activities such as hiring and training. They are often involved in reviewing applications, conducting interviews, processing paperwork and handling performance reviews and disciplinary actions.
