The role of administration department within an organization is to process all of the admin and documents for the rest of the company. There are many different departments that need to have different things done with their admin. The main functions of an admin department of an organization are;

  • To process paperwork for external suppliers.
  • To process paperwork and information for internal people. This could be anything from looking after the basic bills to the internal post.
  • Looking after the internal communications so that all members of the organization are aware of what is going on within the organization.
  • Organizing any deliveries or suppliers coming into the offices for the day for any reason.
  • Arranging company extras such as company cars and any hotels for business trips that may be needed.
  • Sending out any mail on behalf of the company. This could be for different stakeholders, customers or even for staff.
The admin department will be responsible for ensuring that all records that pass through the department are filed correctly and can be found and referred to if and when they ever become necessary.

These will be records of purchases and expenses from different parts of the company and their approval from the finance department. There will also be different confidential information about employees that are owned by the Human Resources department. These too will be stored and used by the admin department.

This is an important department for any company and they work across all departments and with all kinds of work. I guess that no one day is the same as the last in an admin department as there is so much that they are responsible for.

I'm currently writing an assignment about this and have so far put.

The administrator is ultimately there to make sure that the managing director of the company are always focused on their jobs and responsibility instead of focusing on writing important business documents..

If you have anymore can you post it on here as it would probably help me as well :D
