Secretary Jobs

Secretary jobs provide administrative support for a manager or team of people in an organisation. Secretary jobs will include carrying out a variety of tasks including producing letters, invoices and other documents and templates electronically. Secretary jobs will also answer the telephone, meet and greet visitors as the first point of contact arrange meetings, diary appointments and travel arrangements and also look after budgets, create and maintain databases and oversee the ordering and upkeep of all office supplies and stationary.

A secretary should have excellent written and oral communication skills, be proficient on a PC and have experience using a range of computer packages (i.e. Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) and be able to meet deadlines and prioritise their workload.

There are no minimum required qualifications to become a secretary, however, school qualifications in subjects like English and Maths would be an advantage.
Any training required is usually done on the job as it will usually relate to learning in-house systems and databases, but there may be the opportunity to partake in external training courses e.g. Business Administration to further your potential with your employer.

As secretaries progress within their company, they are likely to be promoted to busier departments or more senior managers, although secretaries working for small companies may have to change employers at some stage in order to receive more responsibility, more varied challenges and higher pay.
