What is a business administrator?
Business administrators play a vital role in organisations and businesses, helping them run more efficiently. They complete a wide variety of administrative duties using good judgement, strong written and verbal communication skills and various IT software and systems.
Successful business administrators have an eagerness to learn, an ability to use their initiative and solve problems.
Business administrators can work on an individual basis or as part of a team, within organisations and industries of any size and type.
Key responsibilities include:
- Using systems and technology for administrative tasks
- Organised, thorough record keeping and correspondence
- Making suggestions for improvements
- Communicating effectively with colleagues and customers
- Understanding and following rules, regulations and legislation
- Problem-solving and complaints handling
- Managing priorities, time and, in some cases, projects.
Employers will set their own entry requirements in order to start on this apprenticeship, but typically requires five GCSEs at Grade C or higher.
The Business Administrator role is a great foundation that can lead to further management or senior support roles within a business.
