“The office admin team is at the centre of a huge network people, resources and activities – and that makes our organisational skills really important to JTL.
A lot of employees work remotely, for example. So when, say, a Training Officer in Manchester needs specific information or a venue reserved for an event, we can provide what he or she needs to get the job done. So although we work behind the scenes, the impact of what we do is felt throughout the organisation.
At one level, I could be involved in simple things like making sure that equipment is properly maintained, or liaising with couriers and external suppliers, or responding to emails and telephone calls.
But at another level, I could be called on to manage the diaries of senior managers or provide administrative support for presentations or the production of documents. If a visitor or VIP is coming to the office, there’s a very good chance that I will need to meet and greet them. You never quite know what is winging its way towards you. But that’s what makes it interesting!”
