A secretary to manager is responsible for a variety of tasks while assisting a business manager. Managers in all fields and all types of companies and organizations hire secretaries.
Secretaries to managers must have excellent organizational, communication, and computer skills. They frequently answer phone calls, set up meetings, greet clients, take dictations, and respond to emails. Strong typing skills are required by employers, as most secretaries are responsible for data entry tasks. They must keep up to date logs and records of various information and contacts. Other tasks that secretaries might perform include shopping for needed items, receiving package deliveries, setting up events, and providing transportation. Secretaries to managers must be independently driven workers. Although they report directly to a manager, they are responsible to understand their duties and fulfill their obligations in a timely and efficient manner. Secretaries work at a reception desk in an office building or at desk outside the manger's office. Though secretaries do not work in teams, a manager usually has many subordinates, so secretaries are frequently in contact with coworkers. Secretaries work normal weekday business hours, but they are frequently needed for overtime as business managers typically have to work longer hours.
A high school diploma and at least one year of relevant experience are required, though some employers ask for an associate's degree in business or a related field. Many employers require a valid driver's licence and a clean driving record as well.
