Administration job description provides a free database of real job descriptions for use in writing jd`s, recruitment and job search.

Below are a sample of Administration job descriptions from our free database.    These are real job descriptions.   There are numerous other admin job descriptions within this site and you can find them by browsing the A-Z of the database [under the menu left] or by searching [top of menu left] for jobs such as clerk, administrator, clerical, admin, support, co-ordinator etc.

Administration job description

Many admin jobs have common threads in that they are office based, some have a particular slant.  An accounts payable role will get involved in facilitating the process of receiving pending accounts to be paid; reviewing payable accounts to ensure that information is properly recorded and the records contain appropriate authorization for payment;  Administering and ensuring that entered items have the correct job codes to pay clients and employees properly; Maintaining proper back up files for research and reference;  Recording  administrative and office expenses etc etc

A more general admin role will include elements like acting as the first point of contact for clients with the organisation;  liaison between the various parts of the company and premises management; inputting to databases; organise client events as required; preparing and co-ordinating mail outs; assisting with the recruitment process as required; updating organisational systems; deal with all incoming and outgoing mail, faxes and emails; answer office telephone and relay messages


Don`t expect to do too much lion taming in these sorts of roles.  A look at several of our jd`s will give you a swift idea of what they involve.  An employer trying to write a jd when a member of staff has left can bolt a few of these together, cross out the bity that are inappropriate and hey presto, won`t be too far from the finished result!

HR jobs will involve most of the routine bitys of admin roles but with the occasion excitement offered by reading about a fairly scandalous disciplinary involving the Chief Executive and a young intern!


On a serious note there are headings for each job description:


1] Job Summary-Provides a short paragraph about what the job entails


2] Main Responsibilities-The main duties and tasks required to be undertaken.  Sometimes this section is known as "job duties"


3] Knowledge, Skills and Abilities-

What sorts of knowledge and experience and qualifications are required of a member of staff to undertake this sort of role?


Good luck, these are all real jd`s, we hope you find what you need.
