Well-paid and with the prospect of providing a rich variety of activities during the working day office manager jobs are worth striving for. Often office managers are highly experienced administrators, who have both literacy and numeracy skills, excel at people management and have a proven track record of implementing and managing administrative systems, while keeping
within a set budget. They tend to be people with at least five years' experience of office administration. The office manager has responsibility for the smooth-running of an office. His or her domain will stretch from the post room to the IT department to the HR department, and requires an in-depth understanding of the whole business or organisation in question.
