Job Description for Administrative Officer

An administrative officer holds a high-ranking position that includes managing the administrative functions of the business. In many cases, the administrative officer's role is defined by four primary responsibilities: communication, coordination, completing daily administrative tasks, and conducting long-term planning. Many large companies seek an administrative officer to oversee internal operations, as they want to be certain everything is conducted in accordance with company standards; these large companies often have an entire section devoted to administrative tasks, and the officer will normally be the leader of this division. However, these professionals are of importance in smaller companies as well.

Administrative Officer Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Administrative Officer in australia:
"Beware."
My job is constantly changing, not where I am relieved of work, just more work is added onto my job description without any compensation.

Administrative Officer in Sydney:
Be confident in what you have to offer! Skills is one thing but you must also be willing to be open to other people's personalities and way of life/work especially if you are to be looking after them/supporting them in your new job. Of course you must always be professional when it comes down to the nitty gritty of the work however it definately helps to brighten the atmosphere and lighten the workload if we are doing our best to help others enjoy their work as well. In saying that, remember not to let others take advantage of your openness - don't be afraid to say 'No' if you really can't take on extra work or really can't carry out a request outside of your normal duties if you don't have the capacity to. And don't be afraid to ask questions! It can sometimes be daunting to keep asking however better to know than to be in the dark! And finally respect everyone at every level and treat everyone equally and you will receive the same.

Administrative Officer in Melbourne:
Don't stay in the same organisation / position for too long unless you are progressing and learning new skills etc....

Administrative Officer in Melbourne:
Be prepared for a hard and challenging job.

Administrative Officer in Melbourne:
"Accountability."
In my experience, for future reference, I would look at better understanding the constraints and limitations of this type of job such as control of projects and flexibility for project improvements. In the tertiary education sector, transparency is a problem where some projects are concerned, which can be detrimental to achieving positive and best outcomes for the projects. Improvements are hindered by bad decisions made by improper management of staff and resources, and Management decisions and agendas.
