May 12, 2014 Stephen Smyth - No Comments

Business Apprenticeships are all about learning to play an important support role within any business or organisation. The businesses you could be working for may be in any of a variety of industries in companies of any size.

Administrators are often in charge of the day to day tasks involved in keeping an office running smoothly. As an indication of how crucial and important a role administrators play, 97% of employers say that effective administration plays an essential part in helping their business function.

Business and Administration Apprenticeships can cover a variety of roles which involve organisation of people and resources which include, but are not limited, to the following:

  • Secretaries
  • Administration assistants
  • Data entry clerks
  • Office juniors

Without these essential roles, information would be much harder to track down, schedules would be harder to maintain and businesses as a whole would be considerably less productive.

When you undertake a Business & Administration Apprenticeship you will likely be working within a team to handle various tasks. Your exact duties will vary depending on your employer and the duties available or necessary in their office, but could include tasks such as typing up meeting documents, collating financial information, sending daily post or handling confidential documents.

Handling of sensitive information requires someone responsible with an eye for accuracy as well as having good attention to detail.
