Administration Manager - Kent

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 Kent

Often called the Garden of England due to its spectacular greenery, Kent is a county in the south-east.

Much of Kent is surrounded by water, with coastlines on the North Sea and the English Channel. It shares borders with Sussex, Surrey and Essex. What's more, Kent is a Home County with parts within the London commuter belt, so it's an ideal location for those seeking Administration Manager opportunities.

Throughout its history, Kent has been an important location. During the Middle Ages, the Cathedral at Canterbury became a destination for pilgrims worldwide, after Thomas Becket was murdered there in 1170. Meanwhile, the River Medway had a naval dockyard for around 500 years before it was shut in 1984.

These days, Kent is known for everything from cement and brick making through to shipbuilding, aircraft design and power, while retail, tourism and the service sector are also important.

Just some of the companies based in Kent, or with large facilities, include KEF Metalworking and Kimberly-Clark. Meanwhile, Aylesford is a large paper recycling facility that manufactures newsprint.

In addition, Dover is an important port town, particularly for ferries to the continent, while cruise lines like MSC, Fred Olsen, Holland America, Princess, Royal Caribbean and Saga depart regularly to destinations around the world.
