Job profile – Secretary

As a Secretary, you will be asked to maintain the calendars and diaries of numerous people, like Business Managers, and often even the top level management such as CFO's and CEO's. Routine daily tasks will include reserving meeting rooms, organising transportation, managing office equipment, scheduling meetings and drafting emails for a variety of team members. Working as a Secretary is an excellent chance to work in a variety of companies, while establishing yourself as a critical component of any company and building your office management skills. Secretaries are essential members of the company who support management and keep operations running. Secretaries are needed in all sectors, from Finance and Legal, to Entertainment and Real Estate.

Requirements for being a successful Secretary

This role requires superior communication and organisation skills, as well as the ability to prioritise tasks and work efficiently under pressure. You will need a professional demeanour as you will often be the first point of contact to top-level management within the company, and will liaise with high level clients and other professionals. Solid IT skills will assist you in this role, as will the ability to work well independently. You must, therefore, be very organised and prioritise workloads for many different people. You need to be confident and presentable with excellent communication skills because you will be the representative for the company initially. Your computer skills must be up to scratch and you must be able to cope with a large amount of pressure. The skills needed to work successfully are also transferable to other office roles such as Administrative Assistant or Personal Assistant. Normally a great deal of experience is not necessary for this role, however you should be fairly knowledgeable of your industry, be this law, accounting or consultancy in order to be able to stay on top of work and have a sound understanding of the company's targets and mission.
