Job Description for Administration Assistant

Most companies use administrative assistants to keep their day-to-day operations working smoothly, and these assistants are responsible for a variety of tasks around an office. These duties can range from simple tasks, such as filing, copying, and typing, to more advanced activities such as scheduling meetings, making flight and travel reservations, payroll, insurance, and bill payment.

Most administrative assistants work in an office environment, and they must have a good familiarity with office machines, including computers. Typing is usually an essential duty, and an administrative assistant will be able to type at a rapid pace. Administrative assistants must be able to endure long periods of sitting, as they are usually seated at a desk for much of the day. A good administrative assistant is comfortable learning new skills and adapting to a wide variety of duties. Administrative assistants should be able to lift smaller loads of weight, because they may need to move boxes, files, and stacks of paper around the office. Multitasking and time management are essential skills, as many administrative assistants are required to be working on several projects at once. Some companies may require a college degree, although many times this is not necessary.
