Administration Manager - Torquay

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 Torquay

Torquay is located on the East-facing coastal area of Devon, in the area called Torbay. Exeter is 17 miles (27 km) to the north and Plymouth is 27 miles (43 k) to the west. Torquay was a tiny fishing and farming village until the Napoleonic wars, when the Royal Navy would take anchor in the bay and the members of the upper ranks would often go to shore in the area. It soon gained a reputation as being a healthy place to stay and by the 19th century, just in time for the arrival of the railways it became a famous spa town and later, a tourist resort. Nowadays it has a static population of around 65,000 but in high season this can swell to 200,000, the size of a small city.

Tourist towns almost always have great logistical requirements, which is why Administration Manager jobs can sometimes become available in the town or the surrounding area. Torquay is not particularly industrialised, but there are several trading estates dotted around the outskirts. Plymouth and Exeter are better employers and are both nearby, which does make Torquay a popular commuter town, and people living there seeking non-tourism related work will often look north and west.

For its population, Torquay has produced a fair number of world-famous people. Top of the pile is thriller author Agatha Christie, for whom a mile of plaques, the “Agatha Christie Mile”, is dedicated. Peter Cook, one half of Pete and Dud, was born in the town, as was comedy actor Miranda Hart and model Lily Cole. Sketches of The Goodies and Monty Python’s Flying Circus were filmed there, and it was during one of the latter’s stays that the team happened upon a grumpy hotelier who became the inspiration for Basil Fawlty, TV’s most famous Torquay-based hotel owner.
