Administration Manager - Harrogate
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 Harrogate
The North Yorkshire town of Harrogate came to national prominence in the 17th century as a spa town, and over the following centuries visitors would go to the place to take the waters, which they thought had healing properties. Of course, the common people would not have had the wherewithal or the ability to get to the town, especially since they would have been sick, so Harrogate became a resort for the wealthy. Hotels sprung up and the town took on a genteel atmosphere which, some would say, survives to this day. The streets of the town centre are lined with restaurants and cafes, and several large parks give the town a green feel.
Harrogate is 13 miles (21 km) north of Leeds and 18 miles (30 km) west of York. Although the Yorkshire Dales are just to the west and the North York Moors to the north east, the town is not in a national park. It is, however, separated from any major settlement by at least 10 miles of countryside in any direction. The A1(M) passes reasonably close by over to the west; Leeds and York are connected a via rail route that stops at the town.
Despite its largely affluent populace, the town does have some industry, and boasts the Harrogate International Centre, the UK’s third-largest conference and exhibition centre. Thanks to Bucks Fizz’s 1981 triumph, the Centre hosted the 1982 Eurovision Song Contest. It was won by the German singer Nicole, with her song A Little Peace, something non-Eurovision fans have wished for ever since.
With an economically active populace of about 70,000 and a constant stream of professional visitors and day-trippers, Harrogate has a healthy need for logistics and supply chain professionals, meaning that Administration Manager positions here and in the region are not uncommon.
