Administration Manager - Dudley

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 Dudley

Dudley holds the distinction of being the second most populous town in the UK after Reading, and has a population larger than many UK cities. The town has applied for city status but has so far failed to be granted it. It’s probably fair to say that to the outside world it forms part of the Birmingham conurbation, nestling between the city proper, Wolverhampton and Stourbridge. The accents of two of its most famous children, Lenny Henry and Sam Allardyce, certainly attest to the Brummy link!

Historically, Dudley was a major player in the Industrial Revolution, and was home to a good deal of heavy industry like much of the Black Country – in fact Dudley was often called the Black Country’s capital. Evidence of this past remains in the shape of the extensive canal network, but the town does not have a great deal of industry any more. The population is served by plenty of big name shops, and the nearby Merry Hill Shopping Centre makes the area a good place to look for Administration Manager jobs.

The town has several trading and industrial estates, such as Belfont, Long Lane, Primrose Hill, Vernon and Two Woods, each of which presents opportunities in logistics.
