What are the chances of getting a job?
Experienced administration officers are in demand because:
- increasing turnover of administration officers as the economy picks up
- employers want administration officers who can multi-task and help their organisation save money, for instance with purchasing plans.
Opportunities for new administration officers who are willing to start in temporary roles
Although opportunities are more difficult to find for new administration officers, entry level positions still become available as some employers prefer to train a new staff member at a lower pay rate than pay more for an experienced worker.
If you are new to this work, you may need to start with a part-time or temporary administration role to demonstrate your worth to an employer.
Many organisations employ administration officers
Most organisations employ administration staff, so you can work for a variety of employers including:
- private businesses
- government departments
- the armed forces
- legal offices.
