Office Manager recruitment agency listing
The role of Office Manager covers a wide range of responsibilities in the office environment from Administration and HR, to IT-related tasks. You'll find job vacancies for General Office Managers across the UK, though there will be higher volumes of vacancies in cities with a largely professional working population.
The average Office Manager role is full-time and permanent, as a good knowledge of the work environment and employees you are managing is crucial, however temporary contracts will occasionally become available for more experienced Managers. Generally speaking, wages range from around £18,000 - £30,000 per annum. Where a vacancy falls on this scale is very much dependant on experience, as well as the size of the team you will be managing and the size and type of organisation.
Qualifications and person requirements
Most roles will require a foundation degree (FD) or higher national diploma (HND) as a minimum, though a full degree is generally preferred. Graduates from any discipline may be considered for an Office Manager role, but agencies and employers may well favour Business and Admin qualifications over other subjects. Taking short courses in skills required for the role such as IT and admin may well strengthen your application, such as those found at GCF.
Office Manager hours are generally 9-5 and relatively structured. However, it can be a fairly high-pressure job, so a preference for working to deadlines is advised. If you enjoy organisation and have the skills set to match then this role could be for you.
