What is an administrator?
An administrator is a person who ensures that an organization operates efficiently. This could be a business, in government, a charity, or any type of organization really. Their specific duties depend on the type of company, organization, or entity where they work. Above all, administrators need to be highly organized and have good communication skills.
Most administrators work full-time hours in a single location so if you’re looking for a traditional 9 to 5 type job setting this is a great place for you. Your duties will vary but they will probably include handling the mail, filing, photocopying, faxing, and general office duties like that. You may also be placed in a role where it is your responsibility to organize meetings and write and send correspondence

To do so we cover the four major knowledge areas that anyone going into business or starting a business needs to know about: marketing, administration, human resources, and accounting. Because of this you may be asked to assume some marketing, accounting, or human resources responsibilities in your day-to-day work as well (exciting stuff!)
