Administration Manager jobs
Administration is the oil in the wheels of any logistics operation. Without it the whole process would seize up, which is why good administration managers are well respected and rewarded.
The individual roles of an administration manager will vary widely and are specific to the company’s own needs, but in general they will be filled by people who are dealing with multiple departments, ensuring needs are met and boxes ticked.
Roles could include legal responsibilities such as safety; assisting with the delivery of sales commitments; facilitating the collection of sales data for analysis; overseeing with personnel, training and recruitment; acting as a conduit between departments; or collecting customer satisfaction data.
Depending on the size of the team, admin managers might be working individually under the general management, for a director of administration, and/or over a team of specific administrators dealing with their own departments or sectors.
The skills required
As the specific requirements of admin managers will depend on the employer, anyone seeking a career in this role will need to be able to quickly pick up a wide range of specialist skills and understand them to implementation level. It will mean that a potential applicant must be able to demonstrate an ability to accurately interpret documents, targets, rules and regulations and act on the results of their own analysis.
Excellent analytic skills must complement the ability to deal with people, often those who might not be completely willing or able to absorb the administration rules under which they are employed.
Administration Manager Jobs in Bournemouth
Bournemouth is well known as a beach holiday resort on the South Coast in Dorset, a rival to Brighton and Weymouth. It is, however, a thriving town with a large population, despite only having a relatively short history. One distinction it can claim is that in surveys it has been found to be the happiest place to live in Britain, and the relaxed lifestyle has led many companies to set up shop in the town or have their headquarters there.
With the population and the endless supply of goods required for the tourism industry, there will be Administration Manager positions in and around Bournemouth – this definitely isn’t the kind of resort that closes between September and March.
Most of the companies that have set up in Bournemouth are in the service sector, but the list is impressive. JPMorgan Chase, Unisys, Fitness First, Liverpool Victoria, Palmair, Imagine Publishing, PruHealth and Lloyds TSB Insurance all have head offices or large offices in this seaside town. It’s also well known as a venue for conferences, including those of the large political parties.
