Who is an Administrative Assistant?

In todays modern office, Administrative Assistant’s are Middle Managers. Other titles describing jobs similar to an Administrative Assistant are: Administrative Supervisor, Office Coordinator, Personnel Manager, Executive Assistant, Office Manager and Administrative Professional. As mentioned earlier – the Administrative Assistant holds a mid-segment post in the organisation, and therefore these titles may vary, depending on the size of the organisation and the level of responsibility or authority in a hierarchy you will be working for.

An Administrative Assistant is part of the Management team, and hold responsibilities much more then a Secretary. For example, he or she may perform fewer clerical tasks than do secretaries. An Administrative Assistant’s job does not necessarily imply directly working for an Executive or a boss. Whereas the responsibility of a Secretary’s job tends to be biased towards activities controlled and directed by a superior.

The occupation of Administrative Assistant has Conventional and Enterprising characteristics as described below:

CONVENTIONAL – Conventional responsibilities frequently involve following set procedures and routines. These occupations can include working with data and details more than with ideas. Usually there is a clear line of authority to follow. (A regular Secretary may usually fall in this classification.)

ENTERPRISING – Enterprising responsibilities frequently involve starting up and carrying out projects. These occupations can involve leading people and making many decisions. Sometimes they require risk taking and often deal with business and decision making matters.

An Administrative Assistant performs, supervises, directs, or advises on work for a variety of essential administrative activities. Today’s executive assistant has become a crucial member of every organization’s support staff – a key business ally with diverse responsibilities, to making important decisions.

An Administrative Assistant holds a more important role in the strategies and lower-level decision making of the organisation and has supervisory powers over the general Office staff.

Employers also look for good customer service and interpersonal skills because Administrative Assistant’s must be tactful in their dealings with people. Discretion, good judgment, organisational or management ability, initiative, and the ability to work independently are especially important for junior level administrative positions.
